Not Your Classic Banana Pudding

I sincerely apologize that I've been out of the blogging world for so long.

I think I've been in a funk. Work has been crazy, home life has been crazy, and there have been so many bumps in the road.

So, I want to apologize to all of those who entered in my giveaway... I will announce the winner next week after I get some things in order.

For now however, can I make it up to you with some "out of this world" banana pudding?

It's more than just a box of Nillas and vanilla pudding... Here's how you make it!

You Will Need:
1 box of Nilla Wafers
1 box (3.5 ounce) french vanilla pudding
2 cups cold milk
1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 tub of Cool Whip
4 bananas, sliced

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the cold milk and vanilla pudding until thickened, set aside.
In a large bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk with a hand mixer until combined. Beat in the thickened pudding mixture until incorporated.
Gently fold the cool whip into the pudding mixture until combined and set aside.
Now to assemble.

Place 3/4 of the Nilla wafers on to the bottom of a 13x9 inch baking dish.
Top with the sliced bananas, then the pudding mixture, smoothing it to the edges. Lastly top, the pudding decoratively, with the remaining Nillas.

Cover and place in your refrigerator to set for 2-3 hours. Enjoy! I love the added creaminess that the cream cheese and cool whip bring. It takes your average banana pudding it knocks it on it's heels... I hope you make this soon!
