Notes

  • French Vanilla or Vanilla Pudding Mix can be substituted for the Banana Cream flavor

  • I used 2% milk, but any variety would work.

  • Nilla Wafers and Butter Cookie can be substituted for the Chessmen Shortbread Cookies.

  • Recipe slightly adapted from Paula Deen’s Not Yo Mamas Banana Pudding Recipe

  • Use an electric mixer to get smooth pudding results. Make sure the cream cheese is softened to room temperature!

  • For best results, allow the banana pudding to chill for at least 4 hours, overnight is best!

  • Store banana pudding covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator.
