Introduction: How to Make Banana Fluff!

About: Retired, doing art work now. Great. Have the time and the money to spend doing what I want to do.

This is an old dessert, but one I make every now and then. Why not share it with the instructables' community? I made two containers instead of one so that I could give my friend,Betty, one.

Step 1: Ingredients Needed

Bananas (3)
A box of vanilla cookies/wafers
A box of banana creme pudding and pie filling
3 cups of milk
some whipped cream

Step 2: Start by Crushing Some Wafers

Just break them up slightly. No need to pulverize them! They will soften in the pudding. I made two containers as I wanted to give my neighbor lady one of them. Hence the two dishes.

Step 3: Make the Pudding

Follow the directions on the box. The size I used for this batch called for 3 cups of cold milk. Then, the pudding is mixed into the milk, and stirred with a mixer for 2 minutes.

Step 4: Pour 1/4th of the Mix Over the Crushed Wafers/Add Sliced Bananas

The mixed pudding is layered over the crushed cookies. Try to divide it into roughly 4 parts (for two containers) or just 2 if you mix it in one bowl. Slice the banana into about 1/4 inch slices and place on top of the pudding.

Step 5: Add a Layer of Whipped Cream

Top off the pudding/banana layer with a layer of whipped cream. Any will do.

Step 6: Repeat the Process Just Completed

Now, just redo all the steps already completed: a layer of crushed cookies, add pudding, put in some more banana slices, and then make a layer of whipped cream. To top of the dessert, add several whole wafers as shown. Eat and ENJOY!

    I also know this as "banana pudding," and am from Texas. Whatever it's called, I just followed Creativeman's recipe and put itall in a bigger casserole dish.  My boyfriend said, "Make thisagain, please!"  I couldn't agree more; it's superyummy!  Thanks for putting the recipe out there for others to try!

    As has been mentioned, this is called Banana Pudding in other areas (specifically the southern states, I've never heard it called 'fluff'). My mother makes it in a deep glass bowl or in a trifle dish, and actually uses whole wafers or wafers cut in halves to make designs on the outer inside of the glass. I made it for my German in-laws last Christmas when we visited Germany and my father-in-law ate nearly three bowls of it :). Also, some strange people like to mix diced pineapple into the pudding, but I have yet to understand this concept...

    Where I come from, this is banana pudding. We use whole wafers, not crushed and normally cool whip. If you go to a church potluck in Texas, Unless it is a very fancy church, this is the banana pudding you will get. Good job. I hope you and your neighbor enjoy it!

    I have always folded in some whip cream into the pudding, which lightens it up a bit. Cool Whip rather than the caned works best. No matter how you do it, this is to die for.

    Never heard it called 'Banana Fluff' before,....here in the South it is known as just good-ole 'BananaPudding'. Rest assured, it's good no matter what you may call it!!
