Super Easy Banana Cream Torte

This past Sunday, we dedicated our baby to the Lord. Afterwards, we came home to eat & celebrate with friends. The biggest hit that everyone LOVED was my banana cream torte. Because I’m feeling nice today, I’ll share the recipe from you (which has been modified from Paula Deen’s “ain’t your mommas banana pudding).


  • 6-8 bananas, sliced
  • 2 boxes vanilla wafers
  • 1 box cream cheese, softened
  • 1 box vanilla pudding, 5oz
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 container Cool Whip 
  • 1/2 can sweet condensed milk


  1. In a 9×13 pan (or for easy clean up, one of those dollar store throw away lasagna pans), dump one box of cookies on bottom of pan. Put sliced bananas evenly on top.
  2. In one bowl, mix milk and pudding. 
  3. In another bowl, mix cream cheese & condensed milk. 
  4. Fold in cool whip
  5. Add mix to pudding, stir. 
  6. Coat evenly on top of banana/cookies. 
  7. Cover with 2nd box of cookies (evenly organized like I did or you can crumble the cookies). 
  8. Refrigerate and serve. 

Let me know how you like it! It was the first dessert gone yesterday & I’ll probably make it more often.

I haven’t had cow’s milk in well over a year & my husband made the switch to almond milk a few months back.


We both found that our bodies couldn’t handle milk – leaving us with belly aches, stuffy noses, and a lowered immune system.

After noticing how we both felt better after cutting milk out of our diets, I started to look at why. Was milk as healthy as we had been raised to believe? Or were we just one of the many dairy-sensitive folks?
