Elsie's Banana Pudding


      This is not the most attractive photo but I promise this is a really good banana pudding dessert.     
   My favorite banana pudding is one in which you make the pudding from scratch and cook it.  I like that one because I like to eat the banana pudding warm ... ah, comfort food ... but this recipe is a lot easier and really, really delicious.
    I'm posting it today because my sister lost her recipe and asked for it so I decided to share it with all of y'all too.   Especially since I don't have anything else to post about today.  :)
     The recipe came from the cook and owner of a little diner in a village in New Mexico.
Elsie's Banana Pudding
3 small boxes Instant vanilla pudding
4 cups whole milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup sour cream
1-9oz carton regular cool whip
box of vanilla wafers
lots of bananas
Mix the pudding, milk and vanilla until well mixed. Stir in sour cream and cool whip.
Make layers of pudding,  sliced bananas and vanilla wafers. Repeat. Repeat again if you still have ingredients.  Cover. Refrigerate. Just enjoy and don't worry about calories.

  1. Looks like a good use for all those bananas I never get around to eating. It will be a nice change from banana smoothies.

    1. I hope you like it. My grown kids love it and so do my grandkids. It was very popular at the little diner in Logan. My sister was making it today to take to a funeral dinner. I love banana smoothies, shakes, bread and when my bananas start turning brown I toss them in the freezer, peeling and all to use for those things. Have a great day... hope you don't get too much snow later in the week but if you are like us you probably need the moisture. Stay off the frozen gravel!

    1. I would love to have some right now, but then I would end up eating the entire thing and gain 10 lbs. Anonymous is my sister ... it is her fault I have been craving this banana pudding all afternoon!

  3. Oh dear, I cannot bring myself to even think about banana pudding with "instant pudding'. Mine must be from scratch or my family would stop coming to my house. I cannot fool them and I have tried.

    1. I am with you. :) I love homemade pudding for banana pudding and love to eat it warm. Nothing can beat that, for me anyway. My kids normally would turn their noses up at instant vanilla pudding too but they love this.

  4. I've never had banana pudding that I didn't like so I'm sure I would like this one. Of course, like you, if I made it I would eat way to much.

    1. LOL! I didn't use to have a sweet tooth but now I sure do. I can not eat less than two bowls at a time of this stuff. Sometime invite your family or friends over for dessert and see what they think.

    1. We like it. If you ever try it please let me know what you think. One thing about it is that since no cooking is required & it is super easy it is something the grandkids can easily make.
