{Magnolia Bakery’s} Banana Pudding

{Magnolia Bakery’s} Banana Pudding: This banana pudding recipe is Magnolia Bakery’s famous recipe! Creamy, dreamy, and absolutely delicious.

{Magnolia Bakery's} Banana Pudding  | A Latte Food It’s been almost six months since I’ve had this banana pudding. That’s six months too long, especially since I’ve had the Magnolia Bakery recipe for nearly two months now.


I know. I’m so ashamed that it’s taken me this long to put the recipe into action, especially given my obsession with it.

I had this pudding in NYC when I visited last August, and it was AMAZING. Magnolia’s is crazy busy–all the time (so you know it’s great)–and while your first choice might be one of their fabulous cupcakes, I’m telling you, this pudding has got to be part of your purchase.

It’s incredible.

And so easy to make. Banana pudding all day ‘er day. 

{Magnolia Bakery's} Banana Pudding  | A Latte Food {Magnolia Bakery's} Banana Pudding  | A Latte Food This famous recipe is easy as pie (or pudding?). It takes a combination of instant pudding mix, sweetened condensed milk, and whipped cream.

Considering my love for banana everything, (maple glazed banana bread and strawberry banana chocolate chip muffinsI die), an easy banana pudding recipe that’s also from one of the best bakeries I’ve ever been to is like kryptonite.

Receiving the Magnolia Bakery cookbook for Christmas was probably not in my jeans’ best interest.

Oh well.

{Magnolia Bakery’s} Banana Pudding

Prep Time: 4 hours, 30 minutes

Yield: 8-10 Servings

{Magnolia Bakery’s} Banana Pudding


  • 1 1/2 cups cold water
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 3.4 oz instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 4 med/large bananas
  • 1 12 oz box vanilla wafers


  1. With a mixer, beat cold water and sweetened condensed milk until combined, about 1 minute. Add in instant vanilla pudding mix and beat until combined, about 2 minutes. Cover the pudding mixture and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (this allows the pudding the proper amount of time to set up).
  2. After the pudding has set up, with a mixer, beat heavy whipping cream until it reaches the consistency of whipped cream, about 4-5 minutes on high. Gently fold the whipped cream into the pudding, until the pudding is fully incorporated.
  3. Serve the pudding with bananas and vanilla wafers. Like the original recipe, I layered the banana pudding, beginning with a layer of wafers, a layer of bananas, banana pudding, and repeating until my glasses were full.
  4. Enjoy!


*Refrigerate until ready to serve. According to Magnolia Bakery's directions, after the pudding is made, you can refrigerate for 4-8 hours, but for best results, do not refrigerate any longer. *If doing individual servings, I like to wait 'til the last minute to put together the desserts to ensure the bananas are not brown.
