Banana Pudding

I first had this dish this past Christmas, when BC and I were at his parents house. His Mom had gotten this recipe from one of the lunchroom ladies at the school she taught at. I have to say, it is so freaking delicious. I mean, I'm not a huge banana pudding fan, and initially blew it off as just another bananas pudding. But friends...this is so much more.

*Update: I was asked to be a part of a dessert linky party with this recipe! My first one ever, pretty excited :) Check it out here.

Banana Pudding
recipe from my MIL and some unknown lunchroom lady

2 bags of Pepperidge Farm Chessman Cookies
2 small boxes of French Vanilla instant pudding mix
6 bananas
1 8-oz box of cream cheese, softened
1 12-oz. tub of Cool Whip
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup milk

Line a 9x13 pan with one bag of Chessman Cookies. (You may have to break up some of the cookies to fill in gaps.) Slice up all bananas and layer on top of cookies.

Mix together the pudding boxes and cup of milk in one bowl. Set aside.

Mix together the softened cream cheese and condensed milk in another bowl. Fold in Cool Whip. Add this mixture to the pudding mixture and stir to combine.

Pour pudding mixture over bananas. Layer second bag of cookies over pudding mixture. Refrigerate for several hours, overnight if possible!


  1. Sounds like one refreshing dessert. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog till Monday night and I'd love it if you'd come by and link your pudding up.

  2. Hi,

    This is a delicious dessert that combines bananas, pudding and vanilla instant pudding mix. This dessert is ideal for celebrations or just an after-dinner snack. Its preparation is fairly easy with the majority of the time attributed to refrigeration. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe.
