Banana Pudding

   Banana Pudding

Banana Pudding has a been a regular holiday dessert in our family forever.   I grew up loving it!  My Aunt Shirley makes it for most holidays and everyone looks forward to it.  This Easter, Brad and I did not get to celebrate with the family but rather had an Easter of our own.  I made “my version” of banana pudding.  I wanted a light, refreshing dessert that Brad and I could enjoy guilt free.  This banana pudding is low in sugar and fat but just as good, I promise.   

Banana Pudding

1 box vanilla wafers

2 large boxes sugar-free vanilla pudding (or 1 box sugar-free and 1 box regular)

6 cups skim milk

1 pint light cool whip

4 bananas

Make pudding according to package directions.  Layer bottom of 9×13 pan with vanilla wafers, enough to cover.  Slice 2 bananas and layer on top of vanilla wafers.  Add half of the pudding over bananas.  Repeat layers then top with light cool whip.  Sprinkle crushed vanilla wafers on top.  Keep refrigerated.
