This was a new recipe, I can't follow a recipe as it written I have to alter it, as I always say "I Jackize it!" Everyone loved this version of banana pudding.

How to Make Not My Mama's Banana Pudding


  • 1In a bowl, combine the cream and pudding mix and blend well using a handheld electric mixer. Mixture will be thick, like whipped cream. (I used my emersion blender.)
  • 2Using another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk together and mix until smooth. I used my standing mixer with the medium bowl.
  • 3Add pudding mixture to cream cheese mixture and mix on low until well blended.
  • 4Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese/pudding mixture.
  • 5Put about 1/3 of mixture into bowl, I used a severing salad bowl.
  • 6Top with a layer of cookies, then a layer of sliced bananas. Try and make uniform slices.
  • 7Repeat 5 and 6 end with cheese/pudding on top.
  • 8I had some cookies left over so I put them around the edge of the bowl, and crush the remaining and sprinkled on top.
  • 9Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or longer.
  • 10Serve with remaining whipped topping, if desired.
