Banana Pudding Recipe

Happy Monday everyone! Thanksgiving has come and gone! We had a wonderful holiday and hope you all did too. It really has been a while since I posted a recipe. If you don't know already, I am from the south, South Carolina and we love our banana pudding. It is pretty much a staple for any southern get together. And the good thing about banana pudding, it can be a summer dessert dish or a winter dessert dish. Every single time I make it, you better believe there will be none for left overs. You will find people fighting over it, trying to stash some in a dish to take home before some one see them, etc.

I prepared our ENTIRE meal of Turkey, collard greens, green beans, rice, mac and cheese, stuffing, turkey gravy as well as sweet potato casserole, apple pie and BANANA PUDDING - a true southern Thanksgiving!! I had to work the day before and return to work the day after. You can believe that I crashed Friday afternoon!
It really has been a while since I posted a recipe. So even though Thanksgiving is over, this can be enjoyed at any time between now and Christmas! I hope you have a wonderful Monday.
Southern Banana Pudding

1 box of NILLa wafers
1 pkg (5.1 oz) JELL-O vanilla pudding mix
1 pkg (3.4 oz) JELL-O french vanilla pudding
2- 4 bananas (depending on how much you like bananas in your food)
3 1/2 cups of milk
one tub of COOL WHIP

 Beat milk and pudding mix with a whisk for 2 minutes
 Mix in 1/3 cup of  the cool whip and let stand.
 Cover the bottom of an 8x8 inch (2 qt) dish with NILLA wafers.
 Top with a thin layer of pudding, then smooth, making sure to cover cookies.
 Top that layer with bananas, then pudding again. Repeat starting with cookies.
After the layers are complete, cover with a layer of COOL WHIP (I whip mine up a little before spreading)
Put a few cookies in a ziplock bag (or food processor) and smash/chop.
Sprinkle the crumbled cookies on top to finish off.
