Summer Banana Pudding

Can't you just taste summer?

I know it is not summer yet, but these beautiful days makes me long for lazy days of soaking up the sun on the pontoon and then retiring to the house for a yummy bowl of banana pudding. This is my mother’s recipe and a favorite of many of my friends and family, especially Tommy!

From start to finish, this recipe will take you about 20-25 minutes.

2 ripe bananas
16 oz. Lite Cool Whip
8 oz. sour cream
2 pkg. 5.1 oz. Jello vanilla pudding
3 1/2 cups cold milk
1 box Nilla Wafers (reduced fat)
1/4 cup lemon juice (bottled is fine)

With an electric mixer, whisk pudding with milk until mixture achieves pudding-like consistency.
Whisk in sour cream until well blended.
Fold in Cool Whip until well blended.

Cut bananas into slices and drop into lemon juice to keep from turning brown.
Move 8 wafers to the side to save for topping.

Crushed cookies make a festive topping.

Layer wafers, bananas, pudding-mix in large container, ending with pudding-mix.
Place remaining 8 wafers in a plastic bag and crush.
Sprinkle crushed wafers on top of pudding.
Refrigerate overnight.
