Banana pudding is VERY easy to make and always a crowd pleaser. Perfect for summer when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen!

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 10 1x


Units Scale
  • 4 cup milk
  • 7 oz vanilla instant pudding (two small boxes)
  • vanilla wafers about a half box
  • 3 bananas sliced into 1/4” rounds, not too green or too ripe
  • 1 small tub Cool Whip topping


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together milk and pudding mix until smooth.
  2. Line the bottom of a large (about 2 qt.) casserole dish or serving bowl with a single layer of vanilla wafers. Arrange banana slices evenly over cookies. (I slice my banana right over the bowl.) Spread 1/2 of the pudding over the bananas, being careful not to disturb the layers below.
  3. Make another single layer of cookies, then top with banana. Carefully spread the remaining pudding over the banana layer, then spread cool whip on top of that. If desired, place vanilla wafers along the top edge.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap, and chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.


You can serve this immediately, but I prefer to wait at least an hour or so to let the cookies soften. This pudding will keep in your refrigerator for 2-3 days.
