Spring is the perfect time for this easy recipe, what with picnics, warm weather, and the need for a cool, creamy dessert. My mom would make this every once in awhile; it's really not your average banana pudding. With the different ingredients, it has an amazing flavor.
Below is a printable recipe, without photos, for your convenience. Just to show you how the pudding is made….
The first thing to do is to smash your bananas. Then blend the bananas together with the cream cheese. After this, mix the rest of your ingredients in with your banana/cream cheese mixture. Ingredients include Cool Whip…. powdered sugar…. instant vanilla pudding…. and milk. Finally, it's time to make your layers, starting with a layer of vanilla wafers. Add a layer of pudding. Add another layer of vanilla wafers. Then top with a second layer of pudding.
