Banana’s Foster Banana Pudding with a cheesecake twist?
That’s right, I’ve taken three of my favorite desserts and mixed them all together! This Banana’s Foster Banana Pudding, for a lack of better names, is a mashup of Banana’s Foster, Banana Cheesecake, and Banana Pudding. My only other favorite dessert is German Chocolate Cake, I just didn’t see how that would fit into the equation.

The banana pudding is extremely easy. This is as simple as following the directions on the package but with a twist. This is where I incorporate a cheesecake like flavor for the filling. Adding cream cheese to the pudding creates an excellent cheesecake like flavor and texture.
I did things a little backward originally though and when I make this in the future would change it around. The first time I made this I added the cream cheese to the pudding later. Next time I will had softened cream cheese tot he pudding and using a stand or hand mixer will mix the two together.
Cheesecake Graham Cracker Crust
The crust is a very simple and versatile. Made of crushed graham crackers, butter, and sugar then baked in a pan for about 6 minutes at 350°. Break it apart to use in the wine glasses. Keep this recipe in your back pocket though, it can be used for so many different desserts!
Homemade Whipped Cream
There is something to say for homemade whipped cream. Not only can I completely control the thickness and consistency but the flavor is out of this world. It is so much better than store bought, not to mention you know exactly whats in it! It’s a very simple mixture of sugar, heavy cream, and vanilla extract then whipped with a stand or hand mixer. The faster and longer you whip it (whip it good), the stiffer the peaks. For this recipe I recommend a fast whip for about 4 minutes.
Banana’s Foster has always been one of my favorite desserts. There is something so warm and comforting about the flavor that mixing it with a cheesecake crust and banana pudding just sounded natural. Banana’s Foster is made of butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, walnuts, typically Rum, and as the name would suggest, bananas. Instead of using Rum in this recipe I opted for a banana Liqueur and it turned out fantastic! It may sound too banana-y but I certainly didn’t think it was.
Once I had everything made I assembled them in wine glasses and we were good to go. There’s no particular order that’s better than another. So just have fun with it and you do you!
I appreciate you taking the time to look over this recipe for Banana’s Foster Banana Pudding. I think this would make an excellent dessert to be served at a BBQ party with Brisket, Ribs, or even Pulled Pork as a main course.
For a lighter and fluffier dessert try out this recipe for Frog Eye Salad; It’s not what you think!
I hope you enjoy it and let me know in the comments your thoughts!
