  • 1 bottle (235 mL) Vanilla Ensure® Regular
  • One 100-g (3 ½-oz) package instant banana pudding
  • 125 mL (½ cup) cold skim milk
  • 250 g (8 oz) light cream cheese
  • 125 mL (½ cup) fat-free sour cream

How to make

  • Pour dry pudding mix into a bowl. Add Ensure® Regular and milk. Whisk by hand for 2 minutes or until mixture is thick and smooth. Set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer for 1 to 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add sour cream and beat for
