Awesome Banana Pudding recipe!

As regular readers know, we occasionally dump the serious stuff and since I don’t really do comedy, we do a recipe.  Here’s your chance to be a hero at the next family gathering or potluck (a.k.a. as Paula Deen’s “Not Yo Mamma’s Banana Pudding.”)   This is what we’re doing today, so this is what you get — but you’ll love it!


2 bags of Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies

6-8 bananas, sliced

1 (5-oz.) box instant French vanilla pudding

2 cups milk

1 (8-oz.) pack of cream cheese, softened

1 (14-oz.) can of sweetened condensed milk

1 (12-oz.) container of frozen whipped topping (thawed) or an equal amount of sweetened whipped cream.

Line the bottom of a 13x9x2-inch dish with  Chessmen cookies.  (And as you can see, we picked up the holiday-themed type.)

Cover the cookie layer with a layer of sliced bananas.

In in one mixing bowl, combined the milk and pudding mix and blend well with a handheld electric mixer.

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 and topping mixture to the pudding mixture and and still until it is fully blended.

Pour the blended mixture over the cookies and bananas and then cover it with remaining cookies.  (I ate one, so that’s why I have a row of three. Besides, there isn’t room to do four the long way…)

Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Bon appetit.

UPDATE: People are finding this recipe regularly and we noted with interest that someone had found it by entering “banana pudding and milk” in Persian. We are therefore adding the term here, to make it easier to find: پودینگ موز و شیر
