Summers are always full of parties and BBQs. If you are like me, I always love bringing the dessert! I have a lot of summer favorites, peach cobbler (I can’t share, I promised I wouldn’t) banana pudding, homemade ice creams, and fresh blueberry crisp with a homemade vanilla ice cream. (Those were just a few, lol) Yum, I just got really hungry! So you have been invited to a BBQ and can’t think of a dish that will have everyone talking, I have just the thing! It’s been one of my absolute favorite desserts since I was a little girl. It’s always a hit at any party or BBQ! Hope you enjoy it!
Betsy’s Banana Puddin’
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 – 8 oz block of cream cheese (thawed)
- 1 – 14 oz can of condensed milk

*In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese with a mixer on medium speed until smooth & fluffy.
Add in condensed milk.
Add in pudding mix.
Next, slowly pour in the milk on low speed.
Finally add the vanilla extract.
Next, mix in 1 cup of the thawed whipped topping. (I added 1/2 cup at a time)
Now that you are done with the pudding mixture, set it aside and start the layers. Start with a layer of Nilla wafers.
Next, a layer of sliced bananas.
Finally, 1/3 of the pudding mixture.
Repeat with layers 3 x’s.
Finally, add the remaining whipped topping and garnish with Nilla wafers, bananas, and the chocolate chips.
Serve & Enjoy!
