Easy Homemade Banana Pudding

• ⁠2 cups whole milk, cold
• ⁠5.1 ounces instant vanilla pudding mix
• ⁠14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
• ⁠3 cups heavy cream
• ⁠1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• ⁠11 ounces vanilla wafer cookies (like Nilla)
• ⁠4 large bananas, sliced

Whisk together the pudding mix and milk in a large bowl.

Then, add the sweetened condensed milk and whisk again until it thickens.

In a separate bowl (or using a stand mixer with whisk attachment), whisk together the heavy cream and vanilla extract until it reaches stiff peaks.

Gently fold about two-thirds of the whipped cream into to the pudding mixture until it all comes together and it’s a uniform color (the rest of the whipped cream will be used for a topping!).

⁠Finally, in a large bowl (or a mason jar or glass for individual servings), first place a few wafer cookies in the bottom, followed by banana slices, then finally the pudding…and repeat once more.

⁠Top with whipped cream and a few cookie crumbles, grab a spoon, and enjoy!

Although you can certainly enjoy this pudding right away, it tastes best when covered and refrigerated for a few hours first.
