Not Yo Mama's Banana Pudding by Ms Paula Deen

Honestly, I never thought banana pudding could get better than the kind my mom used to make with vanilla wafers and home made pudding but then I tried Paula Deen's "Not Yo Mama's Banana Pudding" and I haven't looked back since. 

Eating a bite of this luscious pudding will make you smile and then ask for another piece.  This recipe is so smooth and silky and not overly banana flavored.  You will not be able to have just one piece...I guarantee!

I've been making this recipe for several years now and I love the fact that the Chessmen cookies make for a perfect little piece when serving.

This is Ms Paula Deen's infamous recipe, bookmark this one it's a keeper!

2 bags Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies
6 to 8 bananas, sliced
2 cups milk
1 (5-ounce) box instant French vanilla pudding
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12-ounce) container frozen whipped topping thawed, or equal amount sweetened whipped cream


Line the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch dish with 1 bag of cookies and layer bananas on top.
In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix and blend well using a handheld electric mixer. Using another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk together and mix until smooth. Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture. Add the cream cheese mixture to the pudding mixture and stir until well blended. Pour the mixture over the cookies and bananas and cover with the remaining cookies. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

It just doesn't get better than that!! can have it sugar free! 

I've challenged my sweet friend Carol Ann the owner of
Diabetes and Me - CW's Cafe Today Managing my Diabetes and cooking Neo-Soul Food for a Healthy Lifestyle, to make me a sugar free version of this recipe...stay tuned for the "light" Not Yo Mama's Banana Pudding....not so sinfully delicious dessert!
