“A rich, banana pudding that I adapted from a dirt pudding recipe. It's the best banana pudding I've ever had.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place some vanilla wafers at the bottom of the dish you will serve the banana pudding out of.
  2. In another bowl, mix puddings with milk. Set aside. *It will be soupy but it DOES thicken up during the next step*.
  3. Stir together cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar until very smooth. I like to microwave my butter and cream cheese to soften them both up.
  4. Add sugar mixture into pudding and stir well to combine. Your pudding should be very thick and pudding-like by now.
  5. Slice up bananas!
  6. Fold bananas and Cool Whip into the pudding mixture. Do not stir until combined. Just fold it inches.
  7. Pour over vanilla wafers.
  8. Add vanilla wafers on top. Chill for at least 30 minutes before serving to "set.".
