Banana Pudding IV
I used two small packets of vanilla pudding and 4 cups of whole milk
( I started with 3 cups but ended up adding another cup when it started to set up as it seemed just too thick- 4 was perfect and the amount called for on the box- 2 cups each. much better, especially since the nilla wafers absorb moisture)
I used 6 bananas and the whole box of cookies for 2 bowls. I made 2 complete clear straight sided bowls.
I started in each bowl, by layering the nilla cookies/banana/pudding twice, then topped with pudding/bananas mounded toward the centre of the bowl , followed with coolwhip topping, and sprinkled crushed cookies over the top. Delish.
Next time i will use even less cookies though- they kind of absorbed the pudding too much - my fault for using so many.
In short, go long on the bananas, short on the wafers ( 1/2 a box per the recipe prob just right) , long on the pudding. The cream cheese, condensed milk, and cool whip unbeatable combo. Remember to use fruit fresh (or lemon juice and water) to keep bananas from browning.
