No bake banana pudding

No bake banana puddingBanana pudding is a dessert you can eat year round and there’s only one way to make it in my book – the easy way. I find myself making this comfort dessert maybe 1-2 times a year (but this will probably be the last time I make it by the Jell-o box way since I’ve actually learned how to make vanilla custard which works even better in banana pudding).

Simple ingredients – simple steps

1. one box of banana cream jell-o 2. two – three cups of milk (use as needed) 3. one box of vanilla wafers of your choice 4. one can of crushed pineapple
