The Creamy Pudding

To start, we’ll make a creamy pudding that will serve as the base of this delightful dessert. In a large bowl, combine two cups of cold whole milk, a can of sweetened condensed milk (which by the way, is a delightful treat in coffee too!), and a packet of instant pudding. Whisk everything together until smooth and silky. This instant pudding sets up quickly, so you’ll have a delicious base in no time. Let it chill in the fridge for about five minutes to set up.

Fluffy Whipped Cream

While the pudding chills, let’s whip up some fluffy whipped cream. In a separate bowl, whisk together two cups of heavy cream, two tablespoons of sugar, and two teaspoons of vanilla until you achieve nice firm, but still silky peaks. Be careful not to overwhip the cream, as it can turn into butter. Trust me, it happens quickly! Once you have lovely peaks, set the whipped cream aside.

Prepping the Bananas

For this recipe, it’s important to use bananas that are at peak flavor without being mushy. You want them to have a little bit of browning and some brown spots, but not too much. Slice your bananas into thin coins, about a quarter of an inch thick. If you’re planning to showcase this dessert in a trifle dish, try to slice the bananas evenly for an aesthetically pleasing presentation.

Assembling the Layers

Now that your custard is chilled and your bananas are sliced, it’s time to assemble the layers. In a trifle dish, arrange a layer of cookies (Nilla wafers are my childhood favorite, but you can also use chess cookies or shortbread cookies). Next, add a quarter of the pudding mixture and smooth it out with a spatula. Repeat this process with another layer of cookies, bananas, and pudding until you’ve used up all the ingredients, finishing with a layer of pudding on top.

The Finishing Touches

To complete this delightful dessert, make another batch of whipped cream using one cup of cream, a tablespoon of sugar, and a teaspoon of vanilla. Smooth it over the top layer of the pudding, creating playful wisps. Finally, crumble a few cookies on top to add a delicious crunch.

You can enjoy this Cool Whip Banana Pudding right away, or let it set overnight for an even more decadent treat. It’s perfect for sharing with family and friends, and the best part is, there’s no baking involved! So indulge in this creamy and dreamy dessert that will transport you back to your childhood.
