Creamy Banana Pudding

This is the best banana pudding recipe I've come across, and I'm pretty sure it was one of those that came on the back of the cool whip container lid...who would of thought? This is one of my favorite deserts to bring to a get together because it's always a crowd pleaser....unfortunately, there's usually not any leftovers to take home! This stuff will be gone in no time!

You will need:
-1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
-1 1/2 cups cold water
-1 (4 serving size) package instant vanilla flavor pudding mix (I use JELLO brand)
-2 cups (1pint) whipped cream (I used light cool whip)
-36 vanilla wafers
-at least 4-5 ripe bananas

-In a large mixing bowl combine condensed milk, and cold water. Add pudding mix and beat with mixer until just well blended. Put in fridge to chill for at least 5 minutes.
-After chilling, fold in whipped cream
-Spoon 1 cup of pudding mixture into glass serving bowl
-Top with vanilla wafers, then bananas. Repeat layering twice (pudding, wafers, bananas), ending with the pudding on top. Sprinkle crushed wafers on top or arrange another layer of vanilla wafers if you prefer. Enjoy!
