It's been a while since I've joined in on Vintage Recipe Thursday over at Joy of Desserts.
Today's recipe is for Deluxe Banana Pudding.
This is my grandmother Lin Lin's recipe, and is handwritten in the front of one of her Southern Living cookbooks.
Mix 3 regular or 2 large boxes of instant vanilla pudding with 5 cups of milk. Fold in 1 cup of sour cream and half a 9 ounce carton of whipped topping. Layer in a large glass dish, starting with coarsely crumbled vanilla wafers, a layer of sliced bananas, then half of the pudding mixture. Repeat the whole thing one more time. Cover with remaining whipped topping and chill.
I've 'skinnied' this up many times by using 1% milk, fat free sour cream, fat free cool whip, and reduced fat vanilla wafers. It does just fine with the substitutions.
