Jackson Vanilla Wafer’s Banana Pudding Recipe: A Southern Classic Reimagined

Creating a delicious banana pudding using Jackson Vanilla Wafers is a delightful twist on a classic Southern dessert. Here's a reimagined recipe that will surely become a favorite.

Ingredients: – 1 box (12 ounces) Jackson Vanilla Wafer – 4 ripe bananas, sliced – 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk – 1 1/2 cups cold water – 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix – 2 cups cold milk (whole or 2% recommended) – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 1 1/2 cups heavy cream – 2 tablespoons powdered sugar – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Prepare the Pudding Base: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk and cold water until well combined. Prepare the Pudding Mixture: Add the instant vanilla pudding mix to the condensed milk mixture. Whisk until the pudding mix is fully dissolved and the mixture starts to thicken, about 2 minutes. Let it sit for 5 minutes to allow it to set.

Incorporate Milk and Vanilla: Pour in the cold milk and add the vanilla extract to the pudding mixture. Whisk until smooth and well combined. Set aside. 

Layer the Ingredients: In a trifle dish or a large glass serving bowl, start by layering Jackson Vanilla Wafers on the bottom of the dish. Next, add a layer of sliced bananas on top of the wafers. Repeat the layers until all the wafers and bananas are used, ending with a layer of bananas on top.

Pour Pudding Mixture: Pour the prepared pudding mixture over the layered wafers and bananas, ensuring it covers them evenly. Use a spatula to gently spread the pudding if needed.

Chill the Pudding: Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate the banana pudding for at least 2 hours, or until the pudding is set and the flavors have melded together.

Whip the Cream: In a separate mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Top and Serve: Once the pudding has chilled and set, remove it from the refrigerator. Spread the whipped cream evenly over the top of the pudding layer. Optionally, garnish with additional Jackson Vanilla Wafers and banana slices.

Serve and Enjoy: Serve the reimagined Jackson Vanilla Wafer's Banana Pudding chilled, and savor each creamy, banana-filled bite of this delightful Southern classic.

With the help of Jackson Vanilla Wafers, this classic banana pudding dish gets a modern update, making it ideal for celebrations big and small. Indulge in the creamy texture and sweet flavors of this delicious delicacy!
