Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


3 cups skim milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
pinch salt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
Nilla wafers
4 small bananas

Bring 2 1/2 cups milk to a scald in a saucepan, over medium low heat, with frequent stirring. Meanwhile whisk together sugar, cornstarch, salt, and 1/2 milk. Once tiny bubbles are visible around the edge of the pan pour the cornstarch mixture into the scalded milk while stirring constantly. Continue to cook over medium-low heat, while stirring, until the mixture thickens.

Cook a further 60 seconds then remove from heat. Line a deep casserole dish (mine was 9 inches round and 4 or 5 inches deep) with Nilla wafers. Layer in pudding, sliced bananas and more cookies until they are all used up (you won't need all the cookies). Chill overnight.
