    Didn’t use the sour cream and it turned out Delicious!

    It was really good but a little thinner than I would have liked. Maybe less milk or setting longer would help. Very easy to make!

    I love this recipe!!! I use 2 boxes of vanilla pudding and 1 box of banana cream pudding to make it a little more bananas.

    Perfect, but where did the sour cream figure in to the mix. I did not add it and it turned out very nice. I used oven top pudding instead of instant of course it turned out thicker and I used a box and a half of wafers. This was truely a hit on the fourth. God bless the USA!

    Simple yet delicious! Made it for my family for first time yesterday and everyone loved it! I was skeptical about the sour cream so I opted against using it and it turned out delicious!!!

    I’ve made this like 4 times for my husband. The first time I followed the recipe exact but the next time I made it I forgot to make the pudding in a separate bowl to layer, honestly I prefer it this way it takes away from the appearance but I think it helps the flavors mix better. Just make your pudding in a big bowl then alternate between bananas and wafers, stirring in between. I top mine with spray whipped cream though if you’re taking this to a party I would add the spray whipped cream right before you serve as if it’s left in the fridge it will deflate. I’ve never been one for banana pudding but it’s my husband’s favorite and after making this, one of mine too

    Really good. Not too sweet. I used half and half for 2 of the cups of milk. It is very tasty.

    Yummy! I did sprinkle my banana slices with lemon juice to keep them from turning brown too soon. I did'nt have any orange juice, that's what I would have preferred. This banana turned out delish! It took a bit of time to alternate bananas, wafers and pudding but its worth it! Kudos!

    Made this tonight for Mother’s Day for a family dinner and it was a big hit although some thought it could use more Nillas. I personally thought the same as well as more bananas since it seemed more pudding than anything. The pudding was also a bit thin, but could of been because I used 1% milk. So next time I will use whole milk, 6 large bananas and 1-1/4 box of Nillas and see how that turns out. Either way, it’s a keeper!

    Added another box of vanilla pudding but only had one 8 oz Cool Whip. Made a HUGE bowl for a pot luck. It didn't last long. Very good!

    Whip your own cream I. I use heavy whip cream

    Amazing I always add a little vanilla extract and some stevia due to the cool whip and sour cream taking some of the flavor away
