Time for a Treat – Quick and Easy Banana Pudding

The picture in the trifle bowl would have been much prettier but my kids devoured it before I could take one!

 After sharing my pitiful attempts at banana bread last week,  I decided I’d post my favorite banana pudding recipe (I know how to make this one!)  I loved all your tips on the banana bread – I don’t think bananas ever have a chance of getting ripe enough around our house, but I may try to grab a bunch extra so I can try the recipes you all sent!  

This recipe stands up so well in a trifle bowl because the sour cream makes it nice and thick, but my kiddos saw it before I got a picture so there was no hope!  Instead you get to see our Banana Pudding glob 🙂  

 Here’s what you’ll need . . .  

 2 cups milk (we used skim)  

 1 5 oz. instant pudding
Jello Advantage Buy $.99  

 8 oz. sour cream
 Friendship Sour Cream 16 oz. $1.49, use $1/1 from Yellow Advantage Buy Flier

Use $1/1 Cool Whip from Yellow Advantage Buy Flier 
1 package vanilla wafers

Combine cool whip, sour cream, vanilla pudding, and milk, mixing well.  Layer vanilla wafers in bottom of trifle bowl.  Then add pudding mixture, one banana (sliced), and repeat making three layers.  Refrigerate 4-8 hours and enjoy!
