Best Ever Banana Pudding Recipe @pinch

This is definitely not your more traditional Southern banana pudding (with meringue) but It is just as good. It has all the flavors have banana, creamy custard, and vanilla wafers. But, in this version cream cheese is whipped into the pudding and whipped cream. It changes the filling texture slightly and adds a hint of tang that offsets all the sweetness. Thick, creamy, and full of banana flavor, this banana pudding is very easy to make and quite delicious. This is totally different from Southern banana pudding that needs to be baked and has meringue on it. This is not baked! We have been making it for years and It is always a hit!
