  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 ½ cups ice cold water
  • cup instant vanilla pudding mix (such as Whole Foods 365)
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 box mini vanilla wafers (such as Whole Foods 365, broken into pieces)
  • 4 sliced bananas (ripe)


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk condensed milk, ice water, and pudding mix until smooth. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
  • Whip heavy cream until soft peaks form. Fold whipped cream into pudding until well incorporated.
  • In one large dish or in several small jars/containers, layer ingredients -- vanilla wafers, pudding, and sliced bananas -- until you reach the top. Chill until ready to serve.


  • Banana pudding will last up to 3 days in the fridge.
  • Like more intense banana flavor? Use instant banana pudding instead of vanilla.
  • Don't have Nilla Wafers? While it won't be traditional, you can substitute with any crumbly, crunchy texture you have on hand!
