The Best Darn Banana Pudding

This is the best darn banana pudding in the world! Seriously. It is so good and so simple to make, you can make it in a few minutes. Growing up, I used to love it when my parents bought Nilla wafers, because I knew we were getting banana pudding that week. We’d always get extra wafers to dip into our banana pudding! Yum.

I always joke that if I was in jail and had to order my last meal – it would be crab legs, lobster tail, and this pudding for dessert. It’s that darn good.
