My coworker friend Kim is from Mississippi. That means when it comes to southern food, she & her mom are going to have the best recipes. My work made banana pudding one day & I mentioned it was my favorite dessert. A couple of weeks later she made her family banana pudding recipe & brought a little sample in for me! I brought it home & Jason & I LOVED it!
Luckily for us (& you!!), she shared the recipe with me.
I made it tonight to take to the NCSU Chi O house for their skit preview party tomorrow night. It makes so much that I made a smaller container for us.

Kim’s Homemade Banana Pudding
1 large pkg instant vanilla pudding
2 c cold milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 container Cool Whip, slightly thawed
4-5 bananas. sliced thin
1 box Nilla Wafers

Make pudding as directed on package: Using wire wisk, mix pudding into cold milk for 2 minutes in large bowl.
Continuing whisking while pouring in condensed milk then Cool Whip.
In 2+ qt container, place layer of wafers, then thinly sliced bananas. Top that with pudding mixture. Continue to layer until all gone. Enjoy!
I used a 1 1/2 qt container & a 1 qt container & almost filled both. I did add some extra Cool Whip that I had left over from when I made the Chilly Pomegranate Pie.

Jason & I couldn’t resist & had some tonight. I crushed up my wafers in the cup. It was so good!!
