This classic southern recipe needs no baking and is made with cream cheese, whipped cream, vanilla wafers, and ripe bananas.

– cream cheese – sweetened condensed milk – vanilla extract – whipped topping – cold milk – instant vanilla pudding or banana pudding – vanilla wafers – bananas


Whip the cream cheese in a large bowl until smooth. Add the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla, then whip once again until completely smooth. Fold in the whipped topping, then set aside.

Add the milk and pudding mix to another large bowl and use an electric mixer to mix for about 3 minutes, or until the pudding starts to thicken.

Use a 9 by 13-inch casserole dish, a large trifle dish, a large serving bowl, or even individual mason jars to assemble the pudding. 

Start by adding a layer of vanilla wafers to the bottom of your chosen dish, followed by a layer of pudding, then a layer of bananas, and then a layer of vanilla wafers.

 Continue this pattern for two to three more layers, ending with the pudding on top. Cover and refrigerate for three to four hours or until set.
