Banana Cream Dessert Salad Recipe

You won't believe how easy and delicious this salad is. If you need a quick last minute dessert salad, this is the one for you! It's kind of a cross between banana cream pie with a fruit salad mixed in. The Twix bars act as the crunchy crust in every bite, with creamy banana pudding. Mix in some fresh sliced strawberries and you have one amazing Banana Cream Dessert Salad.

Our husbands are big banana cream pie lovers, but sadly enough a lot of the wives would rather have cake.  This is one banana cream recipe that we can both agree on. We do love banana cream pudding.

The chunky candy bars added into the salad give it some crunch, but it’s sweeter than a regular pie crust. (That’s why the wives love this recipe)

The fresh strawberries add in the perfect amount of sweetness. This works as a side dish salad or even as a dessert.

You might look at these ingredients and think this is more of a dessert. But a salad is considered a cold dish of various mixtures. So this qualifies as a salad.

After one bite, you won’t care if it’s labeled as a dessert or salad, all you’ll care about is having some more.

can you use other pudding flavors?

We use banana instant pudding in Banana Creamy Dessert Salad. You could use other pudding flavors, but it will definitely change the taste of the salad.

Vanilla pudding would be good and all of the ingredients and flavors would still blend together well. Take careful consideration of any other pudding flavors to make sure they go together with the strawberries and candy bars.

But if you have a favorite pudding flavor that you know you can’t go wrong with, give it a try. If it’s your favorite, I’m sure you’ll like it in this dessert salad.
