Hi everyone, I am Kathy from Lemon Blossoms and this is my first time posting here. I am excited to be a part of the contributor team at Princess Pinky Girl. I have been blogging for a little bit over a year although I have worked as a Chef for my entire adult life (that is a long time!)
Now, let me tell you what I love about this mouthwatering and tasty dip. If you have a sweet tooth but don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, dessert dips are the simple way to satisfy your sweet cravings without having to turn on your oven or stove.
There’s no need to wait for hours for your dessert to set either, this Banana Cream Pie Dip is done and ready to eat in 10 minutes. Now that is my kind of cooking!

How To Make Banana Cream Pie Dip
The process is simple and the ingredients are few – 6 to be exact. That is a winning combination right there!
To make this Banana Cream Pie Dip, I use a handheld electric mixer because I feel it speeds up the process. Of course, you can use a whisk if you wish.
First, mix the pudding with the Half & Half. You can use whole milk as well, although the final result may not be as rich and creamy. The mixture will look as if it is setting right before your eyes. That is expected.
Then beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Room temperature cream cheese is key for quick and creamy results.
Next, whisk in the whip topping. I like to add it in two batches, making sure the first batch is completely incorporated before I add the remaining whip topping.
Lastly, mix the pudding mixture with the cream cheese mixture. It will look fluffy and creamy. This is the time when you will have to show some restraint and stop yourself from eating it!
I top the creamy dip with sliced bananas and crushed Nilla wafers.
Now the fun part, the dippers. There are so many possibilities – banana slices and Nilla Wafers are a must. I also love having graham crackers, strawberries and my favorite – big pieces of chocolate (because banana and chocolate are perfect together).
Without the toppings, this dip will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 3 days making it a great make-ahead dessert. Just make sure to store it in an airtight container.
Banana Cream Pie Dip
- 1 3.4 ounces box instant banana cream pudding

In a medium bowl, combine the pudding powder and Half & Half; beat with an electric mixer or a whisk until well combined. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer until the mixture is well combined and fluffy. Add in half of the Cool Whip and continue to mix until combined. Add the remaining cool whip and mix well.
Combine the pudding mixture with the cream cheese/Cool Whip mixture until it looks smooth and creamy.
You can serve it immediately or refrigerate it for a few hours.
To serve, decorate with some banana sliced and sprinkle with Nilla wafer crumbs. Serve it with Nilla wafers, chocolate pieces and banana slices.
