I never knew I was a fan of banana pudding. I always knew I loved Cool Whip … I mean who doesn’t? But I saw a picture of some banana pudding in Cooking Light and I just had to try it! It was so yummy! I tweaked the recipe a bit when I made my own version so take a look below.
1. Slice 2 bananas into 1/2-inch-thick slices and set aside. Place remaining banana in a small bowl, and mash with a fork until smooth.
2. Combine milk and 1/3 cup sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer (do not boil) then remove it from the heat.
3. Combine remaining 1/3 cup sugar, flour, salt, and eggs in a medium bowl; stir well with a whisk.
4. Gradually add the hot milk mixture to the sugar and egg mixture, stirring constantly with a whisk. Return milk mixture to the pan. Cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly (about 3 minutes), stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
5. Add mashed bananas, butter, and vanilla, and stir until butter melts. Let the mixture come to room temperature, stirring occasionally (takes about 15 minutes). This is important.
6. Once cooled, fold half of the Cool Whip into the pudding.
7. Spread 1 cup of your pudding evenly over the bottom of your pie dish. Top with your banana slices and then 15 or so of your Vanilla Wafers. Keep repeating these layers until you get to the top. Spread remaining half of the Cool Whip evenly over the top and crush remaining 8 or so wafers over the top. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Serve cold.

Something magical happens when this cake goes in the oven. The top turns into this wonderfully light, fluffy, and moist cake, while the bottom pools into a warm lemon pudding. The whole thing tastes incredibly comforting, but light.
A rich and chocolatey pudding with just a hint of orange, this simple dessert pairs especially well with fresh fruit.
I absolutely adore the flavors of chocolate and cinnamon together so I tweaked a chocolate pudding recipe to mimic the flavor profile of Mexican hot chocolate. Want some? You know you do.
Measure out the ingredients and grab a heavy-bottomed saucepan, a whisk, and some dessert bowls and we’ll make it together. You won’t believe how fast and easy the process is.
