Mini Banana Puddings

Pin It
I try (and I emphasize the word try since it doesn't always happen) to make my close group of girlfriends something for their birthday whenever one rolls around. We get together and then I typically make some sort of dessert that they request or that I think they will enjoy. For my friend Geni's birthday, she requested banana pudding. I appreciated the request since I had a newborn in the house and knew it would be simple! But I decided to make it a little special by making everyone an individualized portion.
I loooove these. They are super simple to make and I typically keep all the ingredients on hand in case I need to make a last-minute dessert. Or in case Chris and I are in the mood for one. Which happens often! Mini vanilla wafers work perfectly for these mini-sized treats, but use the regular size if your local store doesn't carry them. I also opted for reduced-fat milk in the pudding and fat-free whipped cream to save a few calories. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe

Makes 6 servings
  • 3 cups cold reduced-fat milk
  • 2 pkg. (3.4 oz. each) vanilla instant pudding
  • 60 mini vanilla wafers
  • 3 bananas, sliced
  • 1 tub (8 oz.) fat-free cool whip, thawed

Beat pudding mixes and milk with whisk for 2 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Arrange 5 vanilla wafers on the bottom of 6 mini glasses. Top with an even layer of banana slices and 2-3 big spoonfuls of pudding. Spread a spoonful of cool whip over top. Repeat all layers, ending with pudding. Top each glass with a dollop of cool whip and a vanilla wafer.

Refrigerate for 3 hours before serving.
