Best Banana Pudding Recipe

My sister makes the best Banana Pudding. She has been making it for years and never has any leftovers. It's a big hit with my family.  I've made it several times for my husband and followed the recipe exactly.  It was even better the second day.  I let it chill overnight so all the flavors come together and so it will become thicker.  In the past I have substituted Pepperidge Farm Chessman cookies for the Vanilla Wafers with great results.  I hope you will give this recipe a try!

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (cool to room temperature)
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (5 ounce) package instant banana cream pudding mix
  • 3 cups cold milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 4 bananas, sliced
  • 1/2 (12 ounce) package vanilla wafers


  1. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in condensed milk, pudding mix, cold milk and vanilla until smooth. Fold in 1/2 of the whipped topping.
  2. Line the bottom of a 9x13 inch dish with vanilla wafers. Arrange sliced bananas evenly over wafers. Spread with pudding mixture. Top with remaining whipped topping. Chill. 


  1. I love, love, love banana pudding! I so want to make this! I'll keep it for company, otherwise I would eat the whole thing myself! Thanks!
