I love all things banana! Especially in desserts. Banana is a great sweetener for desserts like healthy banana cake, banana pudding cheesecake and this banana cream pie dip!


Cook and Serve or Instant Pudding for Banana Cream Pie

The base of this banana cream pie dip is banana cream pudding. Make sure to use the instant pudding in the baking aisle. You can find the instant pudding right next to the jello-o in the baking aisle. Once you have your pudding you’ll mix it with 2 cups of milk. I like to use whole milk for this but you can use any milk you want. The only milk you should avoid is soy milk because it won’t mix well and get nice and thick.


How to Thicken Pudding

Pro tip: make sure the milk you’re using to mix with the pudding is extra cold. It helps the pudding get thick and creamy really fast.

What to dip in this banana cream pie dip:

I’m a huge lover of vanilla wafers or graham crackers with traditional banana cream pie so those are definitely the best options to dunk and dip into this banana cream pie dip!


You could grab a box or two of graham crackers or vanilla wafers (or even Teddy Grahams) and pair them with a fruit like strawberries or apples!

Lumpy Cream Cheese

When you’re making this recipe just be sure to follow the directions by mixing the pudding and beating the cream cheese separately! You’ll want to make sure the cream cheese is smooth and creamy before you incorporate it with the pudding or it will be lumpy.


Stirring Vs Folding Whipped Cream

Once you have the pudding and cream cheese together, fold in the whipped cream. Don’t beat the whipped cream or it will lose it’s fluffy consistency! This is what makes the banana cream pie dip smooth and light and fluffy!

I'm Molly! I'm convinced love is the answer, that you can enjoy veggies & butter equally, & dessert (usually a cookie) can change the trajectory of someone's day. I love health/fitness, pool days and if I could be any emoji it would be this ?. My goal for WMM is to feed hungry bellies with delicious (mostly) healthy desserts and feed hungry hearts with grace and love. Thanks for joining me!
