Banana Pudding in a Jar


  • 1 4-serving size box of instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 c. cold water
  • 1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • Nilla Wafer cookies
  • 23 ripe bananas
  • 1 pint whipping cream
  • 1/3 c. powdered sugar


  1. In a medium bowl, combine pudding mix, cold water, and sweetened condensed milk. Mix well and place in the refrigerator to chill for a few minutes.
  2. In another bowl, whip 1 c. of whipping cream until soft peaks form. Gently fold into the pudding mixture.
  3. Slice the bananas into 1/4″ slices.
  4. In 8-ounce jars*, spread 1/4 cup of the pudding mixture over the bottom. Add 3-4 Nilla wafers, a few banana slices, then top with another 1/4 cup of pudding. Top with more Nilla wafers (and bananas, if desired). Refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours. Immediately before serving, whip the remaining pint of whipped cream with the powdered sugar and dollop it on top of the puddings. Garnish with an additional 1-2 Nilla wafers.


  • *This can also be done in 4-ounce jars for smaller portions, just cut all the measurements per jar in half.
