14 ounces can sweetened condensed milk
1½ cups ice cold water
3.4 ounce package instant vanilla pudding mix
3 cups heavy cream
11 ounce box vanilla wafers
5 ripe bananas, sliced


Add cold water and sweetened condensed milk in a medium bowl and stir with a wire whisk. 

In a another bowl add the pudding mix and slowly whisk in the liquid mixture until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour until firm (or overnight if you can).

With a mixer, beat the heavy cream until it’s thick, increasing the speed until stiff peaks form.

Add pudding mixture to the whipped cream and whisk until fully combined.

In a clear glass bowl or casserole dish spread one-quarter of the pudding on the bottom and add a layer of vanilla wafers and sliced bananas . Repeat the layers with the top layer being pudding and vanilla wafers. 

Cover dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least four hours.

hi! I'm shannon

I’m a wife, mom of three, doctor, and blogger! In 2018, I decided to turn my mom blog, into a personal finance blog so others could follow along on our journey to pay off over HALF a MILLION dollars in student loan and practice start up debt. I hope you enjoy following along, and maybe even find some inspiration along the way.
