Banana Pudding

Last week we had some family and friends over for dinner on Friday prior to the Baby Showers on Saturday and Sunday.  For dessert, I wanted to make something a little different and came across a banana pudding recipe on Pinterest. 

Banana Pudding
from Cooking with Carrie

Ingredients (For our group, I ended tripling it, which was way too we've had to eat from it all week..)1 box of vanilla wafers
4 to 5 bananas, sliced
2 cups milk
1 (3.9 ounce) box instant french vanilla pudding
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (8 ounce) tub of whipped topping

1. First, don’t forget to set out your ingredients, especially the cream cheese, as it needs to be softened and the whipped topping if it needs to thaw.
2. In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix and blend well using an electric mixer.
3. Using another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk.
4. With the same electric mixer, blend together until smooth.
5. Add the pudding to the cream cheese mixture and stir until combined.
6.  Peel and slice the bananas and set aside.
7. You can use a large bowl, 9x13 pan, or small bowls for the banana pudding. I used plastic cups and then layered the remainder in a bigger container. Start with a layer of vanilla wafers, then the pudding mixture, then bananas.  Then more of the pudding mixture, vanilla wafers and a layer of whipped cream.  Continue with the pudding and bananas and pudding and wafers until you reach the top!
