Banana Pudding Recipe

One evening we had a bunch of bananas and weren’t sure what to do with them, when Justin said he really wanted some good banana pudding. Well I had never made it before so had no idea where to even start, besides bananas and pudding. So I took to the internet and started looking up recipes, and as we usually do, we mixed a few of them together and came up with our own recipe. It’s so good, and so refreshing. It also is great to bring for a dessert when you need to bring a dish to share somewhere. Or of course, keep it for yourself like we tend to do! The banana pudding will stay good for a few days in the refrigerator, but after that the nilla wafers start to get a little soggy. Justin doesn’t mind that, but I have a ‘texture thing’ and can’t eat soggy chips or crackers, yuck!
