Best Ever Banana Pudding

Best Ever Banana Pudding {Macaroni and Cheesecake} We recently had a Sunday School social and my friend Meghan made this banana pudding. It was so good, I asked her to send me the recipe. I finally got to make it this past weekend and it turned out great! This Best Ever Banana Pudding truly is the best I’ve ever tasted! I had several people who tried it tell me that it was the best they’d ever had too! It’s just so creamy and luscious but without being heavy or overly rich. Just the right amount of sweetness. Make this for your next party or family gathering and everyone will be raving and asking you for the recipe!

Place an even layer of bananas over top of the wafers. Repeat the layers with the pudding, wafers, & bananas. Top with remaining layer of pudding. Top with a layer of whipped cream if desired.
