We love banana cream pie in this house. If my husband is really lucky, I'll make the banana pudding from scratch which is SO very good. But most of the time, we use a pudding mix, and it gets devoured anyways!
I love bringing sweet appetizers to parties. I feel like most appetizers lean towards the savory side,so it's always nice to have something sweet to mix it up. I've tried a million variations of sweet dips using cream cheese and pudding as the base. This is one of my favorites.
Add banana pudding mix, cream cheese and whipped cream together. Cover with crumbled graham cracker crumbs, and top with a dollop of whipped cream!
I like to serve this with graham crackers and vanilla wafers, but it is also excellent with cut fruit. Strawberries, especially!
