grandmother's (Gregg) banana pudding

Last year sometime I went to my grandparents for dinner and she had the most amazing banana pudding.  I wrote down her recipe and unfortunately forgot about it until this summer.  I’ve made this several times this summer and it’s always a hit!  In fact, we usually don’t get much of it before it’s gone.  I made some last week to take to the Conley’s house for dessert.  Joey asked me to make extra so we’d have some here too.  The good thing is that it makes quite a bit so I just split it into two dishes (actually 3, I took one to my very pregnant friend, Tracy).  Anyhow… here’s the recipe!  Enjoy!

  • 1 block Cream Cheese
  • 1 can Sweetened, Condensed Milk
  • 1 package Vanilla Instant Pudding (large Box)
  • 3 cups Cold Milk
  • 1 tub Cool Whip (large Tub)
  • 5 whole Bananas (ripe)
  • 1 box(es) Vanilla Wafers

Preparation Instructions

In a mixer, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk. Mix until smooth. Add the vanilla pudding mix. Gradually add the 3 cups of milk. Mix for about 5 minutes or until smooth. Fold in half tub of cool whip. Slice bananas and sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent browning. Layer bananas, pudding, crushed vanilla wafers, repeat. Top with remaining cool whip. Garnish with vanilla wafers and leftover bananas. Refrigerate for at least an hour. Enjoy and be prepared to make more soon! (WARNING… It is rich)

  1. I’ll have to try this, Cooper would love it. He LOVES banansa, he ate 3 yesterday and a banana cupcake, that I made inspired by you! Yes, we do need to get together, anytime you want to. Do you watch Project Runway? Or Top Chef? Maybe Joey would let you come over after the boys are in bed. Let me know!

  2. Hi Suzanne!
