Reminds me of summer in the South

I know each region of the US has foods they are known for. My mother is from south Jersey by way of Baltimore. Ask her about her past and she'll tell you how much she misses foods like blue crab, salt water taffy and sub sandwiches. Whenever I eat banana pudding, it reminds me of why I love living in the South! With our milder weather, warm hospitality, and comfort food, this pudding fits right in!

Don't buy banana pudding next time you get that craving, make it! This recipe is super easy and is best if made the day before. It's become so popular on my tennis team, my captain insists I make it every season!


  • 2 packages of large vanilla instant pudding, I like sugar free
  • 1 large Cool Whip, regular or light
  • 2-3 bananas, sliced
  • 1 box Nilla Wafers, any brand will do

Put together in 10 minutes

  1. Make the pudding according to package directions
  2. Layer the pudding, bananas, Cool Whip, and Nilla Wafers any way you like. I start with pudding, bananas, Cool Whip with Nilla Wafers around the outside. If you like lots of Nilla Wafers, you could layer them horizontally as well!
  3. My trifle bowl lets me do just a couple of layers so yours will vary depending on the size.
  4. Cover and refrigerate overnight. It's best when the Nilla Wafers are a bit mushy!

      I'm sorry I don't know that. If you look at the boxes of pudding, nilla wafers and cool whip you can estimate.

      When you put it in the trifle bowl. it adds that bit of drama and people will think you are really talented. Let me know how yours turns out.
