No cook no bake banana pudding. Either you love it or hate it. Some people are used to traditional banana pudding that's completely homemade, but most days I love to use shortcut recipes like this one!

My regular banana pudding always stirs up some passionate comments on Facebook, but everyone who tries it, loves it. Today's recipe is the butterscotch version of that pudding!

We are huge butterscotch fans at our house and since we love banana pudding so much, we knew this one would instantly be a new favorite.

Butterscotch and bananas go so well together and the crunch from the Nilla Wafers adds a great texture. It's creamy and so delicious! We love serving this as dessert for BBQ's in the summer and it's always a great addition to any holiday meal as well.

Recipe tips:

  • Desserts are the best with whole milk, but any milk will work for this.
  • Homemade sweetened whipped cream may be used, but homemade whipped cream doesn't stay stabilized as long as Cool Whip, so it may break down into a more liquid state the longer it sits.
  • To keep the bananas from turning brown right away, you can lightly coat them in lemon juice or orange juice. Don't use too much, otherwise the flavor with alter slightly.
