INGREDIENTS FOR NO-BAKE BANANA PUDDING

  • 1 3.5 oz banana instant pudding – you can find instant pudding in the baking aisle of your local supermarket.
  • 1 1/2 c cold milk – I like to use 2% but you can use whole milk, skim, or even almond milk!
  • 8 oz cool whip thawed – you can find this in the freezer section next to the ice cream. If you’d like, you can make your own whipped cream!
  • 2 c vanilla wafers crushed – I like to put them in a ziplock bag and use a meat mallet or the back of a spoon to crush them.
  • 2 medium bananas sliced – I like to put them in right before I’m ready to serve so they don’t get brown.
