Wednesday can make or break your week. It can be fabulous and you go on to win a gold medal, solve world hunger and find world peace. Or it can cause your week to go into a tailspin and send you down the doom-n-gloom spiral of despair. So, to avoid the second scenario, I’m giving you my super secret, extra special, sure fire to make it a fabulous week recipe for Banana Pudding.

Don’t scoff. It works. I pinky swear.

Banana Pudding

  • 1 cup sour cream – you can also split this 50/50 between yogurt & sour cream; or just use plain yogurt
  • 2 cups 2% milk (because we want less fat, no?)
  • 1 tub of partially frozen cool whip
  • 1 – 5oz package of vanilla instant pudding
  • half a box or so of vanilla wafers – they come in low fat version now but whatever floats your boat
  • a bunch o’ bananas
  • banana liqueur if you’re feeling frisky

Mix the sour cream, yogurt, milk and pudding mix together. Gently fold in Cool Whip. In a large bowl, or if you’re fancy, a trifle bowl, layer in the pudding mix, bananas, then wafers. Keep doing that until you run out of room and/or ingredients. Put the bowl in the fridge to chill for a bit. Serve about 1/2 a cup per person.

This dessert is yummy and rich, so a little dab’ll do ya!

So, how’s that for getting over the hump? 😉
