How to Make Not My Mama's Banana Pudding


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