Banana Cream Pudding

1 hour including fridge time
10-12 servings

I have been meaning to post this recipe for a long time, possibly months. I really have. However, I also seem to think I have more hours in the day than I do. Plus, 9pm rolls around and I’m just tired. So tired.

So here we are, months later. I like to think Banana Cream Pudding is a year round appropriate dessert though. Especially this one because it’s incredible. It’s basically like the filling in a banana cream pie in pudding form. The Nilla wafers make it extra special. Am I the only one who likes a Nilla wafer when it’s just slightly soggy. Not all the way, but just a little bit from sitting in the pudding. Just me? I’m a weirdo.

Try this amazing recipe, not hard at all! It’s a little bit grandma recipe and a little bit modern. And all the way delicious!

Banana Cream Pudding

My Grandma’s Banana Cream Pudding is so good, so creamy and full of that classic banana flavor. The Nilla wafer cookies add a little sweet crunch for the passed down recipe. So good!
