Best Banana Pudding Ever!



Hi All!
I am still here yes, yes I know. It’s been what…. months I’d say.
I’ve had so much happen in my life that has set it upside down, turned it around and refocused me so much so that I have to work daily on being normal again. This is a discussion for another day so I will table it for now.
I haven’t had a postworthy recipe in a while but this weekend we had a birthday celebration in my house that was cause for something new.
I made a banana pudding that I’ve had the recipe for years for but never had a reason to make it until this weekend.
Everyone should have this in their life – just once! It is that good y’all!
Ok here is what you need.
Ingredients:
  • 2.5 cups of 2% milk
  • 1 lg box of vanilla instant pudding
  • 1 can of eagle brand condensed milk (or store brand)
  • 16 oz Coolwhip (I used Light)
  • 1 package Vanilla wafers
  • 4-5 ripe bananas
Instructions:
  1. Whisk or mix together the milk and vanilla pudding in a large bowl
  2. Add condensed milk and continue whisking.
  3. Add coolwhip and mix well
  4. Slice bananas to desired thickness.
  5. In a large dish, layer cookies, pudding mix and bananas.
  6. Continue layering until all done.
  7. Sprinkle top with crumbs of box for nice decorative topping.
  8. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
It makes A LOT.
Enjoy!

Gingerbread cookies–but better!

I always feel guilty eating ginger bread cookies because I eat the heads off first or maybe the arms. Then they are headless or armless little men. I feel bad for them, but then they are a cookie that is their duty in life – to get bitten. Ha!

But what if I could make a gingerbread cookie smoothie that didn’t involve eating a head or an arm? I would love that! No guilt on either part!

Well I will do just that. Tada! Gingerbread Man Shakeology!

Go forth and MAKE!

How about some apple pie with that….

Fall shake line up.

UP NEXT…..

Apple Pie.

This is so good y’all! I wasn’t sure I’d like it because it has applesauce in it but I was so wrong! Not a big applesauce fan. It’s a texture thing.

I bet even better next time if I use applesauce with cinnamon in it that it would be killa illa illa!!
