Banana Pudding--The Summer Version

I have two banana pudding recipes that I use all the time. That's because I'm not so keen about standing over the stove stirring the custard base for the old fashioned banana pudding. So I call this recipe my Summer Banana Pudding.

Banana Pudding - No Cooking required

1 large pkg instant vanilla pudding OR 2 small pkgs.
2 1/2 cups of cold milk

Mix the pudding with the cold milk until it begins to hold its shape.

Add 1 (14oz) can of sweetened condensed milk and 8 oz thawed Cool Whip

Alternate layers of pudding with sliced bananas and vanilla wafers; top with remaining cool whip and a pretty layer of whole vanilla wafers.

Refrigerate and chill several hours before serving.

I typically will use 4 large bananas. You want to use bananas that are just beginning to get the dark spots on them. If not, they'll be green and the pudding will be flavorless. If there are too many spots, the bananas will just mush up and that's not good.

I use either/or vanilla, french vanilla, banana, cream cheese flavored puddings. I think my favorite is to use one small pkg cream cheese instant pudding and one small pkg of the banana flavored instant pudding.
