This is not a dietetic recipe. You get the full flavors from all the ingredients. This recipe is a step up from the other banana pudding recipes. It is delicious and when served is pretty. My family enjoys it when I make this.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This recipe has the awesomeness of banana pudding and banana cream pie all wrapped up in a cute square package! It’s a delicious no-bake dessert. The layers of vanilla wafers, bananas, pudding, and whipped topping are arranged in nice even layers so they can be cut into squares for easy serving. Easy to make, you’ll want seconds of this treat.

NOTE: We would definitely recommend doubling the crust recipe. We were able to press it into a 9×13 pan, but the layer is thin.
