Yummy. Hubby is a Southerner and insisted on this for Thanksgiving. (A tradition so he says but they serve it year round) I've never made it and hubby was determined to be highly critical of any that I made. This recipe did the trick. It wasn't too expensive adding cream cheese and condensed milk like other recipes. It was just simple and cheap to make. It wasn't hard like the ones where you make cooked pudding and meringue either. Easy and hubby gobbled it up with raves.

It's pudding from the box with cool whip, bananas, and vanilla wafers. Its not really different than any banana pudding. It's just ok.

This is a family mother always preferred vanilla pudding instead of the banana cream as it can sometimes have a "fake" taste. This is also good with graham cracker crumbs instead of the vanilla wafers. It's one of those recipes that anyone can make and most everyone loves!! A++++

Awesome, yet easy!! My husband usually makes it the old-fashioned, true southern, messy kitchen way and he LOVED my quick, no-cook way better!! I sprinkled some cinnamon on top to give it some "right-outta-the-oven" color and this addition gave it an extra special kick of flavor!! We will never make banana pudding by the old school rules again!!

I LOVED this recipe. After being told I had to cut my sugar intake by more than half (gestational diabetes) I still wanted something sweet.I used sugar free vanilla pudding, sugar free nilla wafers, and sugar free cool whip. It tasted the same to me and I cut almost all of the sugars out of it!!

While this is very easy to do, it doesn't hold a candle to the cooked pudding and meringue banana pudding I grew up with.

My family members, which are die hard southerners who enjoy food prepared the old-fashioned way absolutely LOVED this lighter, fluffier version of the traditional Banana Pudding. I enjoy making this version for those who come to my home to enjoy a truly southern meal. They leave satisfied and full of smiles!

My Nanna used to make this when I was a child. It is as good today as it was then. This is my husbands new favorite. It is so easy even he could make it!
