Banana Pudding Trifle


Magnolia's has some of the best banana pudding I have ever tried. And this recipe is said to be the exact recipe that Magnolia's uses and boy is it good! The good thing about this recipe is that the adults like it just as much as the kids do!

{This recipe does take time to set up so make sure you read all directions prior to making}

Magnolia's Banana Pudding

1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups ice cold water
1 (3.4 oz) package instant vanilla pudding mix (use Jell-O brand)
3 cups heavy cream
1 (12 oz) box Nabisco Nilla Wafers
4 cups sliced bananas

In a small bowl mix sweetened condensed milk and water with an electric hand mixer until mixed together (about 1 minute). Add the pudding mix and beat well (about 2 minutes). Cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours or overnight. Make sure you let it sit for at least 3 hours so that the pudding can set up.

In a large bowl beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in the pudding mixture into the whipped cream until well blended and no streaks of pudding remain.

To assemble place a few Nilla wafers at the bottom, then a few slices of bananas, and top with a scoop of pudding mixture. Repeat until jar is filled. Garnish with
additional wafers or wafer crumbs and banana slices. Cover tightly and allow to chill in the fridge before you serve. 4 hours seems to be my favorite time. Do not let them sit in the fridge for longer then 8 hours!

{This can also be made in a large glass bowl or trifle dish. Use one-third of the nilla waffers, one-third of the bananas and one-third of the pudding. Then repeat}
