Hostess With The Mostess

Not Your Nana's Nana Puddin'


1 brick cream cheese (softened)

1 small can sweetened condensed milk

1/4 cup sugar

1 large package instant vanilla pudding

4-5 bananas - cut into small slices

1 cup milk

1 large container cool whip

1 tbsp PURE vanilla extract - (I use Madagascar Vanilla extract)

1 box of vanilla wafers

1 bag of Heath chips - (you can find these in the baking aisle of your grocery near the chocolate chips)


In a mixer, beat cream cheese, until creamy. Add sugar & continuing mixing. Add sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, pudding package & milk. Mix well.

Add about 1/3 of the container of cool whip & fold in sliced bananas with spatula.

In a trifle bowl arrange vanilla wafers on the bottom of the bowl. Add in some of the banana pudding, arrange more vanilla wafers on the sides.

After you’ve added half of the pudding mixture add a small layer of cool whip & then more vanilla wafers to the side. Add the remainder of the pudding mixture & top with remainder of cool whip.

Finish off with a sprinkling of heath chips on top (secret ingredient!) 

Chill for a bit to allow the wafers to soften.
