  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

  • 2 ½ cups milk, divided

  • 2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant banana pudding mix

  • 5 small bananas, sliced, or more to taste

  • 1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided

  • ½ (12 ounce) package vanilla wafers, slightly broken

  • 1 ½ cups coffee-flavored liqueur (such as Kahlua®), or to taste

  • 2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant chocolate pudding mix

  • 1 individual package chocolate graham crackers, broken

  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed


  1. Divide sweetened condensed milk and cream cheese between 2 bowls. Blend each mixture until combined.

  2. Add 2 cups milk and both banana pudding mixes to one bowl; stir until thickened. Fold in 1/2 of the sliced bananas, 1/2 of the 12-ounce container of whipped topping, and 1/2 of the wafers.

  3. Add remaining 1/2 cup milk and coffee liqueur to the second bowl. Stir in chocolate pudding mixes until thickened. Fold in remaining 6 ounces whipped topping and graham crackers.

  4. Spread the coffee-chocolate pudding over the bottom of a glass trifle bowl. Layer on 1/2 of the 8-ounce container of whipped topping. Add banana pudding. Top with remaining whipped topping. Refrigerate, 8 hours to overnight.

Cook's Notes:

You can also use mini vanilla wafers (unbroken) instead of the regular size.

You can adjust the amount of Kahlua(R) to suit your taste. Just make sure you use 2 cups of liquid.
