  • bowls
  • Glass
  • Freezer
  • Fork 


  • 1 14-ounce can of velvety sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 medium-ripe bananas
  • 36 artisanal vanilla wafers
  • 1 packet of premium instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups cold water


  • In a large bowl, whisk together condensed milk and cold water. Pour the vanilla pudding mix and beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Chill in the fridge for 5 minutes.
  • Gently mix in the heavy cream with a rubber spatula. Arrange 1/3 of the vanilla wafers into a single layer in a large trifle bowl or glass. Slice one banana thinly and layer it on top of the wafers. Top it with 1/3 of the pudding layer. Repeat layering twice more, ending with the pudding.
  • Chill the dessert for 1 hour. Sprinkle with fruits or nuts, if desired. Serve and enjoy!


  • When making the pudding mixture, be sure to stir it frequently so that it doesn't become lumpy.
  • If you have time, freeze the banana pudding overnight before serving. This will make it easier to slice and serve.
  • If you want a richer flavor, try adding a bit of vanilla extract or almond extract.
  • For an extra crunchy texture, sprinkle some crushed vanilla wafers on top.
  • Also, if you're serving this to a large crowd, consider doubling the recipe. This will ensure that everyone gets enough.
