The Most Amazing Banana Pudding You’ll Ever Eat

50 Flares 50 Flares ×

When I was in college, I lived in the sorority house. Angela, one of our cooks, made the most amazing banana pudding! I loved it so much that on days when she made it and I wasn’t around for lunch, she would set some aside for me. How awesome is she? One day I had her teach me exactly how she made it. I’ll warn you – it’s not healthy in the slightest. Processed galore. But in moderation, what a treat!


  • Banana cream pudding – I am a firm believer in using banana cream pudding. Not vanilla pudding. “Banana pudding” made from vanilla pudding is a scam. Don’t do it.
  • Whole milk
  • Nilla wafers
  • Cool whip
  • Bananas – Hey, bananas are healthy right? Load up on the potassium!


  1. Make the pudding according to the instructions on the box.
  2. In your dish, lay out Nilla wafers. You can do it just across the bottom or along the sides as well.
  3. Next add a layer of pudding.
  4. A layer of banana.
  5. A layer of cool whip. These layers make your dessert look pretty (so use a clear dish!) and they also add dimension when you are eating it. Lots of flavors!
  6. Repeat with wafers, pudding, and banana. If you want to, you can mix some Cool Whip into this last layer of pudding. It makes it extra creamy!
  7. Lastly, I top with wafers or banana.

What makes this recipe different from the others is what makes it key.

  • Use real banana pudding!
  • Mix pudding and Cool Whip for extra creaminess.
  • Add banana and Nilla wafers.

Amazing. Enjoy!

    I know it’s probably blasphemy in your book but you can add pineapple chunks too once in a while. Banana pudding is my Dad’s favorite, he wants it instead of birthday cake! (candles work fine in it) 😉

    Maybe add it to a serving on the side in case you don’t like it.
