Strawberry Banana Pudding Ingredients
- 1/3 cup vanilla sugar
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 cups milk
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into small pieces
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 12 banilla wafers you could also use plain vanilla wafers

Strawberry Banana Pudding Directions
In a small saucepan on medium heat, combine the vanilla sugar, cornstarch, and milk. Whisk thoroughly until the sugar is dissolved.
Add the egg yolks and whisk again to combine.
Add the butter.
Stir constantly until the mixture just begins to bubble.
Reduce heat to low and simmer another 2 minutes or until it has the consistency of porridge, stirring constantly to keep the pudding from getting lumpy.
Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, and set aside to cool.
Line the bottoms of ramekins with banilla wafers. You may need to break them to get them to fit well and that's OK - no one will know or care.
Evenly distribute cooled pudding over wafers in each ramekin.
Top the pudding with a layer of bananas.
Top the bananas with strawberries.
Whipped Topping Directions
Whip heavy whipping cream until it looks like whipped cream.
Mix in sugar.
In a separate bowl, thoroughly mix cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk.
Gently fold cream cheese mixture into whipped cream.
