Banana Cream Pie Dip Recipe

Banana Cream Pie is one of the most amazing desserts around! I mean, who can resist a creamy pudding dessert full of bananas and studded with toasted coconut?

All the best banana cream pies have a flaky pie crust too! So why not mix it with banana pudding?

Some love the softening of the wafers and how they all mesh together. I prefer to keep my vanilla wafers on the side and use them to scoop up my banana pudding.

If you love bananas you will go bananas for this Banana Cream Pie Dip! No fuss with a pie crust and easier to make!

Ingredients Needed

Banana Pudding – Use the instant version of banana cream pudding and not the one you have to cook.

Milk – I like whole milk but use your favorite or dairy free milk.

Cream Cheese – Full fat is best, soften to room temperature.

Whipped Topping – Thaw in the fridge before using.

Powdered Sugar – Be sure to sift before measuring.

Vanilla Extract – You can use coconut extract too.

Vanilla Wafers – I love these to scoop the dip but you can also use graham crackers or your favorite cookie.

Bananas – Use ripe bananas but not too soft.
