This recipe is sponsored by Campfire® Marshmallows, but all thoughts are my own. Thank you for continuing to support the brands that make My Baking Addiction possible.

I am not from the South. I hope this is clear in how much I talk about Ohio, and Ohio’s weather. That said, my best friend IS from the South, and talks about Southern food a LOT.

I’ve learned my way around some of the best Southern foods there are, from fried chicken and mac n’ cheese to – you guessed it – Banana Cream Pie.

There may be some argument as to whether or not this famous dessert is Southern, but that’s how I think of it. I definitely saw it on more than a few menus when I was in Austin last year, and I rarely see it up here.

Banana Cream Pie Fluff is a new twist on a Southern classic. So easy and so delicious!

But, it’s one of my favorite desserts! So we need to change that.

But making a pie from start to finish isn’t always feasible.

So when tasked with making a crowd pleasing dessert that I wouldn’t have to slice or serve? I grabbed my favorite Campfire® Marshmallows and got to work.

Banana Cream Pie Fluff is a new twist on a Southern classic. You'll be making this all summer long!

Fluff recipes are most definitely something I’m familiar with. In fact, my latest recipe for Strawberry Cheesecake Fluff went absolutely bonkers on Facebook and has already been made and enjoyed by so many of you!

These potluck “salads” have appeared on my family’s table since I was tiny, and my Ambrosia Salad (while not called fluff), is where my love of this kind of dessert started.

This new variation on one of my favorite ways to consume marshmallows is pretty darn impressive, if I do say so myself. Crunchy vanilla cookies, sweet bananas, and all the pudding a girl could ask for.

Banana Cream Pie Fluff is a new twist on a Southern classic. Simple and totally delicious!

I mean, really it couldn’t be easier or more delicious.

In fact, when I was testing this Banana Cream Pie Fluff recipe, I dropped the first batch off to the staff at Elle’s school and they fell for it pretty hard.

In fact, they all agreed that it was pretty darn near perfect. Not too sweet with great texture and yummy banana flavor. The only suggestion I got was to add in mini chocolate chips, which I think might be pretty darn good!

Banana Cream Pie Fluff is a new twist on a Southern classic. You're going to love this recipe!

This Banana Cream Pie Fluff starts easily enough – some cream cheese, some pudding mix. Add some whipped topping, fresh bananas and the cutest Campfire® Mini Marshmallows. Then you’re there.

If you’re not a fan of whipped topping, you can definitely sub in freshly whipped cream; however, you’ll need to stabilize it, or it won’t hold up.

You can actually make this Banana Cream Pie Fluff a day ahead (so long as you’re using whipped topping), and the flavors will only get better. Just be sure to add in the bananas and top with vanilla cookies just before serving.

Banana Cream Pie Fluff is a new twist on a Southern classic. You won't believe how easy and delicious this is!

This is one perfect dessert for all the summer picnics and barbecues you’re going to attend, and I’m pretty sure it’ll be a crowd pleaser too.

Just in case you’re new here, I’ve been working with Campfire® Marshmallows for the past few years to create some amazing marshmallow recipes. We’ve got tons of delicious dishes and desserts from the past couple of years, and so much more to come.

We even created a Marshmallow Madness Pinterest board where we’ve pinned loads of delicious ooey-gooey marshmallow recipes.

Just like this Banana Cream Pie Fluff, this Nutella s’mores fudge and this s’mores snack mix.

just asking if powdered sugar is icing sugar and is the banana cream pudding would be our instance pudding as I haven't seen anything like that in our supermarkets / I live in New Zealand/

Hello! Yes, powdered sugar and icing sugar are the same thing. I used two packages of banana cream flavored instant pudding. If you don't have a similar flavor instant pudding available, you might try it with vanilla instant pudding - the banana flavor just won't be quite as strong. If you happen to give it a try, I'd love to know how it turns out. Thanks so much for stopping by. -Jamie

Type 2 diabetics CAN have sugar, it just needs to be carefully controlled. As many 'sugar-free' products do not react to other products the way they 'should' I wouldn't try using them. Instead, I would make a half recipe (less temptation!), then freeze it into ice cubes or mini-cupcake papers. Enjoy a cube or two --depending on your specific situation -- once in a while. Or freeze it whole and scoop out a little bit, like ice cream.

I bet you could also cut some of the powdered sugar without affecting it too much, and up the whipped cream. The flavor will be lighter, but should still be really good (I haven't tried it on THIS yet, but I up the whipped cream on LOTS of these type desserts and they work great).

Hello! I haven't attempted this recipe for anyone with Type 2 diabetes, so I am not sure of the best method. If you happen to give it a try, I'd love to know what you did. Thanks so much for stopping by. -Jamie
