Magnolia Bakery's Banana Pudding

Magnolia Bakery's Banana Pudding

Ronnie had this Thanksgiving lunch at work this past week and signed up for me to make a dessert. I immediately thought of banana pudding because of the excess amount of bananas we had in our kitchen. 

I follow Magnolia Bakery on Instagram and love their pretty cupcakes but they also make an awesome looking banana pudding. I googled the recipe a few months ago and made my first attempt. I sent in the results with Ronnie to work one day and he said it was gone right after lunch; on guy even asked me to send his wife the recipe! The only feedback Ronnie gave was that it was a little too sweet. I had used cool whip instead of homemade whipped cream and I think the amount of sugar in the cool whip came through. 

This time I made my own whipped cream and added one extra banana to the recipe. To make the famous Magnolia Bakery Banana Pudding you'll need the following:

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2/3 cups Vanilla Instant Pudding mix
  • 1 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 Box Nilla Wafers
  • 4 Bananas (I used 5)

Mix together the water, pudding mix, and condensed milk and whisk until smooth. Place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. Once, chilled, take the 3 cups of shipping cream and whip until soft peaks form. You'll fold that in intervals into the pudding mixture. Then layer Nilla Wafers, banana slices, and pudding in a refill dish. 

I was able to get three layers and used an entire box of cookies. When completed, cover and set in the fridge to chill.  

I think this is such an easy dessert that is always a hit! Let me know if you've made it or will be this Thanksgiving!
