Paula Deen's Banana Pudding

It's Paula Deen's. Need I say more?

This is all you need to make this all-time favorite dessert!

Don't forget your adorable helper.

14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
2/3 c cold water
3.4 oz box instant French vanilla pudding mix
12 oz frozen nondairy whipped topping, thawed
8 medium-ripe bananas, sliced
Garnish: whipped topping, vanilla wafers

1. In a large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, water, and pudding. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth; chill for 5 minutes. Fold in whipped topping.
2. In a serving dish, pour just enough pudding mixture to cover the bottom. Place a layer of vanilla wafers over pudding, followed by half of the bananas.
3. Repeat procedure with remaining ingredients, beginning and ending with pudding mix.
4. Garnish with whipped topping and vanilla wafers, if desired. Serve immediately.

In my opinion: This is a wonderfully rich dessert. It was a huge hit with the kids. We can't wait to have it again...and again...and again!
