Nearly eight years ago, I shared my mom's recipe for a pretty unconventional Banana Pudding. It's a layered, uncooked variety that relies on boxed pudding mix, some whipped topping, and even throws in some mini marshmallows for good measure. It's different for sure, but is something that everyone always enjoys despite its unorthodox list of ingredients. It's also super easy (it only takes 15 minutes to make) and perfect for potlucks.

So when I was dreaming about putting a new twist on a traditional fluff recipe, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to take that pudding recipe and make it even easier. The recipe is nearly the same, it's just all stirred up into a sweet, delicious concoction that falls somewhere close to an ambrosia and banana pudding mash-up. It's gotten rave reviews around here. I bet it will at your house, as well. Try my Banana Pudding Fluff at your next get-together!
