Strawberry Banana Pudding

 strawberry banana pudding
I love Sundays!  I get to see most of my kids on this day and so I always try to think of a new dish that we haven’t had for this special day. My husband wanted a Banana Cream Pie for Christmas but it seemed like a crazy time to have that dessert and the holidays get crazy, busy around here, so I never got around to it. I know I’m late, but I finally got around to banana dessert! Not pie, but you will totally love this! Strawberries are in season and so I had to throw some in.
This is so simple but so rich and satisfying.
Ingredients:
1 12 ounce Cool Whip
1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 8 ounce whipped package cream cheese, room temperature
2 cups milk
1 5 ounce box instant vanilla pudding
6 to 8 bananas, slice
1 container fresh strawberries, slice
1 box Vanilla Wafers
Directions:

  • Depending on how you want to serve your pudding, this can differ. If you want to do it in a 9×12 baking dish, line the bottom with Vanilla wafers and a layer of bananas and strawberries. (If you want to do it in the mason jars, I would wait until you make the cream mixture before layering).
  • In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix, mix well and until the pudding thickens.
  • 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 and stir until well blended.
  • If using the 9×12 dish, pour the mixture over the cookies and fruit and cover with a layer of fruit and then the remaining cookies. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Mason jars: start with cookies then fruit and then the pudding mixture and repeat until the jar is full! This would be great with any kind of fruit!

  1. Nice and cool for the warm weather coming our way!
    If you know LaVoice (LV) at Thoughts from Meme's Corner, please email me phamilybusiness1@aim.com for her address. She got very ill last week and they are unable to pinpoint what is wrong with her. She is a terrific lady and a few years ago I was blessed to meet her and her niece Suzanne (ColoradoLady). They are wonderful folks. Thank you and have a terrific week.

  3. I have never considered combining strawberries with banana pudding. What a great idea. I bet the addition of the cream cheese adds richness. I will definitely. Have to try this. Thank you for sharing.
