easy peasy no-bake Banana pudding

At our kitchen table, the sweet tooth is equally divided.
While daddy and 'R' are hugely partial to everything sweet, 'E' n I lean towards the oily n deep fried.
So it was hugely noted when 'E' approved (and how!) of a mango mousse that was served. So we have made this mousse many a time!
This particular recipe here for the banana pudding caught my eye cause it had a lot of the same cream cheese and whipped topping.Also attractive was the ease with which it could be done.

What I used for it:

4 ounce cream cheese
7 ounce sweetened condensed milk
3 ounce instant vanilla pudding mix
1.5 cups cold milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 ounce frozen whipped topping- thawed
2 bananas, sliced
3 ounce vanilla wafers

How I did it:

In a large bowl, I beat cream cheese until fluffy. Then beat in condensed milk, pudding mix, cold milk and vanilla until smooth. Fold in 1/2 of the whipped topping.

Line the bottom of a 9x13 inch dish with vanilla wafers.

Arrange sliced bananas evenly over wafers. Spread with pudding mixture. Top with remaining whipped topping. Chill.

This was a hit with girls n 'G'.

Pointers to self:
1. Unlike banana nut muffins, the bananas for this shouldn't be too ripe.Just ripe enough.
2.I used the sugar vanilla wafers and was a huge success taste wise. But was a little tough to serve and cut for the girls.
So maybe next time while lining better idea to cut the wafers.
Or even try the Nila style vanilla wafers.

Also for the umpteenth time, I have to remember to use the biggest bowl possible, as however less the batter a hand mixer will always make a mess.
