Not Yo' Mama's Banana Pudding


  • 1 (12 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed, or equal amount sweetened whipped cream
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 (5 oz) box instant French vanilla pudding mix
  • 6 to 8 bananas, sliced
  • 2 bags chessmen cookies


Line the bottom of a 13x9x2-inch dish with 1 bag of cookies and layer bananas on top.


In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix and blend well using a handheld electric mixer. Using another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk together and mix until smooth. Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture. Add the cream cheese mixture to the pudding mixture and stir until well blended. Pour the mixture over the cookies and bananas and cover with the remaining cookies. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

I love this reci

I love this recipe, and do make it sometimes with the chessmen cookies. But my husband is a purist and loves it with the Nilla Waffers. ;-)

I want to make this recipe using whipped cream. Do I need to add 12 oz of whipped cream or add the equivalent volume of whipped cream? Big difference!

"Heaven!" I wou

"Heaven!" I would recommend that you make this recipe the night before serving so the flavors can come together. And don't be a cheap skate with the cookies - it's worth it!

5 Stars I have made this several times. Took it to one day for a pot-luck and had to make 10 copies of the recipe. Now we fight over who is going to bring it for pot-luck.
