Last week, I made a delicious banana pudding for Jordan’s birthday celebration at the office. I gave him a few choices of what I could make for our office treat and he picked the banana pudding. I have experience making banana pudding (and have documented it here) but here is the actual recipe:

Magnolia’s Banana Pudding Recipe
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 c cold water
1 (3.4 oz) box vanilla instant pudding mix
3 c heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 c sliced bananas (this ended up being about 5 bananas)
1 (12 oz.) box Nilla Wafers

First, combine the sweetened condensed milk with the cold water. Once those have been mixed together, add the instant pudding mix and make sure all of the pudding mix is blended with the condensed milk and water. Refrigerate until firm (about 2 hours).

While the pudding is firming up, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form:


Once the pudding is firm, mix with the whipped cream and add vanilla extract:


Fold the pudding and whipped cream together (by hand):


Now you’re ready to put everything together! I have a trifle bowl that makes banana pudding look good – you start by placing nilla wafers on the bottom of the bowl and sliced bananas on top of the nilla wafers:


Then a layer of the whipped cream + vanilla combo:


Keep layering until you run out of ingredients (I ended up with about 5 layers and a little leftover for individual containers):


And the happy birthday boy:
