Ingredients used for making banana pudding cool whip are vanilla instant pudding, milk, bananas, vanilla wafers and whipped topping. Another recipe calls for cream cheese and condensed milk in conjunction with the other ingredients.
Make a banana pudding cool whip dessert by combining 3 cups of cold milk and 2 packages of vanilla instant pudding in a bowl. Layer 30 vanilla wafers in the bottom and around the sides of a serving bowl, and spoon half the pudding on top followed by 1 1/2 sliced bananas. Add the rest of the pudding and 1 1/2 bananas, and top it with 1 8-ounce tub of whipped topping.
Make another banana pudding recipe by creaming 1 8-ounce package of cream cheese and then adding in 1 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk, 1 5-ounce package of vanilla pudding mix, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 3 cups of cold milk. Mix in 4 ounces of whipped topping, and spoon the mixture in a serving dish lined with vanilla wafers. Cover the pudding with 4 more ounces of whipped topping, and chill the dessert before serving it. An alternative recipe suggests substituting the cream cheese and condensed milk with 8 ounces of sour cream.
