Banana No Banana Pudding

This is probably the easiest recipe I'll ever blog, and yet it's the most delicious! This week we celebrated Joel's 32nd Birthday (in Heaven). One of his favorite desserts was this pudding I used to make religiously.

There was a time he couldn't eat solid food, so this was perfect for him and was always a treat. Plus... I'm not a big fan of ripe bananas (anyone part of the nearly green banana club?)! You can always add bananas if you'd like. And, after having it for the first time, Freddie called me a fraud for not including bananas, but it's delicious just the way it is, nonetheless!

Banana No Banana Pudding

Super simple and light Nilla Wafer Pudding!!!


1- 5.1 oz box Jell-O Vanilla Instant Pudding & Pie Filling Mix (or 2 small boxes)

3 Cups Milk

1 box of Nilla Wafers

24 oz of Heavy Whipping Cream

2 T of Sugar


  • Make pudding according to box.

  • Layer a single layer of wafers into the bottom of a baking dish of your choice. Reserve 1/3 of the box for the second layer and 1/3 for the top. Eat a few to enjoy while making! ;)

  • Add heavy whipping cream and sugar in mixer with whisk setting on high til it reaches stiff peaks.

  • Add 1/2 of the pudding once it has reached the consistency has set for 5 minutes.

  • Use 1/2 of the whipped cream mixture to the pudding in a layer. Then add another layer of wafers, the remainder of the pudding and then the remaining whipped cream.

  • Crumble the wafers to top. We just use a ziplock bag and smash them- this is super fun for kids!

  • Cover and refrigerate at lest 2 hours or overnight.
