Being asked to hand a favorite family recipe down to the next generation is not only an honor but the greatest of compliments! After 20 years of making Creamy Banana Pudding I've discovered the holidays aren't the same without it. I can't recall the last holiday meal that didn't include it. The texture is so light and creamy it seems to just melt in your mouth. The taste is delectable! If you like banana flavor you will love this! It's delicious! My family races to get the last serving! I've been making this pudding for at least 20 years. In that time I've made a few alterations with only minor changes the original recipe. I always start by chilling the mixing bowls. I prefer to use a metal bowl when whipping the cream. It seems to speed up the process with equal results. I use pineapple juice to preserve the sliced bananas instead of lemon juice. You get the same results and that I believe taste better. It may not even be noticeable. I substitute banana flavored instant pudding mix for the vanilla. We've done a side by side taste test and banana flavor won hands down. DO NOT substitute the EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk! I've used another brand only to find it really does make a difference! One of my favorite gifts of all time is an antique, cut glass, footed serving dish given to me by my best friend. The dish and the dish are a perfect match! Warning: you can not make this just one time! You will make it a family tradition! Vivi
