Magnolia Bakery's Banana Pudding is rich, creamy, and the best banana pudding recipe I've tasted! Magnolia Bakery's famous banana pudding is made with just a few ingredients, but tastes like a million bucks! It would make the best Easter dessert or no-bake summer dessert!

  • 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!
Recipe Notes

*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.
