  • 2 3.4 oz boxes French Vanilla Instant Pudding
  • 1 3.4 oz box Banana Cream Instant Pudding
  • 1 11 oz box Nilla Wafers
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 16 oz Frozen Whipped Topping (Cool Whip)
  • 5 cups Milk
  • 3 ripe Bananas


  • In a large bowl, mix together puddings and milk until combined and smooth. 
  • Mix in sour cream and half of the frozen whipped topping (8oz). 
  • In a large trifle bowl, put down a layer of Nilla wafers to cover the bottom of the bowl. Add a layer of sliced bananas and then 1/3 of the pudding mixture. 
  • Add another layer of wafers, bananas and pudding. In my bowl I was able to make 3 layers. Top with remaining 8 oz of frozen whipped topping and crushed Nilla wafers.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
