I needed a quick but perfect, springtime dessert, so I chose this, one that I've been relying on since the mid-'80s. It is a variation of many similar recipes, all which use pudding mix, cream cheese and Cool-Whip, and I've never found a variation I didn't like. In the original magazine advertisement for this recipe, General Foods suggests other "exciting" flavor combinations - use 3 sliced bananas (awesome, like banana cream pie!), 4 c. sliced fresh peaches, or 1 can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple, drained. On this occasion I used a mixture of strawberries and bananas. Delicious, but keep in mind that this must be eaten quickly as the strawberries will release their juices and the bananas will begin to turn color. I also use only 3 cups milk.

This is a great idea but the crust really needs to be baked first I think. It was just all a big mush and not so enjoyable. I probably wont be making this again.

Really tasty, and popular at the function I brought it to. The only problem I found was that, even though it had been thoroughly chilled, it was really difficult to cut it into clean squares: ended up being delicious piles of mush.

I have been making this dessert for summer get-togethers for years. It is delicious and always a hit! Cream cheese, whipped cream and pudding - YUM!!

Love this recipe. It is so light and tasty. I substituted custard for the jello. It was delicious.

SO easy and DELICIOUS! My family thinks it resembles the taste of Bob Evan's Strawberry Pie

This is one of my favorite recipes! I've been making it for years. I have an old tattered page from Readers Digest with the recipe. It's so hard to read now. My recipe calls for 1/4 cup of sugar in the cream cheese layer. Makes it taste like cheesecake! I make it with strawberries and bananas. It's like a banana pudding cake :-)
