One great way to use bananas is in making banana pudding. Once you have tried homemade banana pudding, you'll never want instant pudding again. This page contains recipes for banana pudding.
A new twist to Banana Pudding. My family begs for it.
Cook pudding, low heat to prevent scorching, as directed on package. Meanwhile, layer "Nilla" vanilla wafers in bottom of large bowl. Then slice two of the bananas and put on top of wafers. Next cut up 3 slices of pineapple and put on top of bananas. Make another layer of wafers, sliced bananas, and cut up pineapple. Place wafers in a circle around the top of the mixture. Pour the pudding over the mixture slowly so it will seep to the bottom. I sometimes shake the bowl gently so the pudding will go to the bottom. Leave out on counter for approx. 30 minutes so pudding will soak into the wafers. Then refrigerate. Best if made night before using. Great for church socials.

Crush 20 of the wafers tor form coarse crumbs; set aside. Pour milk into medium bowl. Add dry pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk 2 min. Gently stir in whipped topping.
Layer half of the wafers crumbs and 8 of the banana slices evenly in four individual parfait glasses or individual dessert dishes; cover with half of the pudding mixture. Repeat layers, reserving 4 of the banana slices for garnish. Cover and refrigerate parfaits at least 15 min. or up to 4 hours before serving. Wrap reserved banana slices tightly in plastic wrap; refrigerate until ready to use.
Top each parfait with 1 of the reserved wafers and banana slices just before serving.

How do you make banana pudding using Eagle Brand milk and whipping cream?

My mom makes it this way:
1 box instant banana pudding mix (prepare according box directions)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 container whipped cream
It is really rich and is always a hit!
Line the bottom of a large bowl or dish with whole vanilla wafers. Crumble a few wafers and set aside. Lay a layer of banana slices over the layer of wafers. Pour enough pudding over this to create a layer of pudding over top of the wafer and banana layers. Repeat this process until the bowl or dish is filled. Sprinkle the crumbled wafers over top.
Layer Vanilla Wafers in 8x10 inch dish. Layer sliced bananas. Mix pudding and milk for 2 minutes and pour over top of bananas. Top with Cool Whip. (I usually mix the pudding mixture and Cool Whip together) Cover and chill.
Mix milk and instant pudding; add sour cream and two thirds of the cool whip (save the rest for topping). In a 13x9 inch size pan, put in layer of vanilla wafers, layer of bananas and cover with half of pudding mixture.
Pour milk into a large bowl,and add dry pudding mix. Mix well and let stand about 5 minutes. Arrange half of the wafers on bottom and sides of a 2 quart serving bowl. Add layers of half banana slices and pudding. Repeat all layers. Spread the topping over the pudding. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
This is a great way to use your over-ripe bananas other than banana bread, and a healthy way to boot. So simple!
Put banana in food processor with the tablespoon of cocoa. You have a fast pudding. Use a frozen banana and it is like ice cream. Add nuts and it is Rocky Road.
