How to Make Banana Pudding


  1. 1. Put pudding packet contents into a glass bowl.
    Whisk in the milk. (To get milk very cold, put
    in the freezer for 15 minutes).
  2. 2. In a clean bowl, using an electric beater or a
    whisk, beat together the cream with confectioners'
    sugar until soft peaks form.
  3. 3. Line each serving glass with a single layer of
    vanilla wafers and top with about 3 tablespoons
    of pudding mix, whipped cream, than a few slices
    of banana. Repeat creating 3 layers and finishing
    with a pudding layer. Allow to sit in refrigerator
    for at least 1 hour and up to overnight to set and
    soften the cookies.
  4. 4. Top each dessert with a generous dollop of whipped
    cream. Garnish with pumpkin pie spice, a vanilla
    wafer and a slice of banana.
