Nothing says “Welcome to camp!” like a serving of our homemade banana pudding! This recipe has been a staple at URJ Jacobs Camp, a Reform Jewish summer camp in Utica, MS, since before we can remember. Our campers eagerly await banana pudding on opening night, and they enjoy it again on closing night to send them home with a final sweet taste from summer.
- Mix pudding in a bowl.
- Add milk, sugar, vanilla, condensed milk, and whipped cream.
- Stir all together.
- Once mixed well, get a bowl or pan. Put Nilla Wafers in a pan and put bananas on top of cookies, then layer with pudding.
- Continue Step 4 until container is full.
