I gathered all the ingredients right then and there and headed home to make it that night. With a few tweaks and tricks, this dessert is PERFECT.

This recipe is the perfect crowd pleasing dessert! I love it because its self service, made in a Trifle Bowl while still remaining pretty. This recipe is also so incredibly easy to put together.

Magnolia Bakery Famous Banana Pudding

2/3 cup Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
1 1/2 cups water
1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
3 cups heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 box vanilla wafers
6 bananas sliced

1. Mix together the water, pudding mix, and sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Refrigerate for 4 hours or up to overnight.

2. Beat whipping cream, sugar, vanilla, until soft peaks form. Reserve 1/2 cup for topping. Fold the rest into the pudding mixture.

3. In a trifle bowl, layer vanilla wafers, pudding mix, and sliced bananas alternating until you used up all the ingredients. Top with the remaining half cup of whipping cream.

4. Chill at least 30 minutes - 4 hours maximum before serving. (The longer it chills, the softer the wafers will be. Do not exceed 4 hours or the bananas will go brown.)
