This easy banana pudding recipe couldn’t be simpler! All but one ingredient is optional and you can make this in 2 minutes or less!

I think people often get so wrapped up in wanting something sweet and dessert-like, that they tend to forget just how wonderful AND dessert-like fruit can be. This quick and easy dessert recipe is perfect for an after school snack and it’s just like having actual pudding!

A bowl of easy banana pudding sits on a table, topped with chopped nuts.

I added the optional ingredients incase you want something truly sweet. But the truth is, just the bananas will do the trick nicely. I like to add the nuts to mine, but when I make this, I make it with just the bananas and nuts. No sweeteners required.

Now, I promise I’m not going to start posting dessert recipes right and left. I know many of you took my survey at the end of last year and I heard you loud and clear. “Stick to main meals!“. But I still think we all need a little something sweet to enjoy now and again, and this recipe fits the bill nicely without busting your eating plan. Plus, you can always do it with just one banana. It cuts the data below in half and many of us eat a banana with nuts as a snack anyway. But somehow the blending makes it seem a little more sinful.

    For those of us who are chocolate lovers add a teaspoon to a tablespoon of cacao powder to the banana pudding. You could also freezeyour bananas and it taste like ice cream.

      Rosalie – Yes! Most of my ice cream recipes use frozen bananas. I love them!

  2. Jessica Furniss says:

    I absolutely love this recipe! I am going to try this tonight with some leftover strawberries I have. thank you for the idea. 😉

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jessica – My pleasure! Enjoy!

  3. Any chance we could get a few other pudding flavors? Like oreo (clean, of course 🙂 and/or butterscotch?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Amanda – I’ll see what I can do. 🙂

  4. I have about 7 bananas that are about to go bad! If I wanted to make a big batch, how long do you think it would stay good for in the fridge?
    Thanks! 🙂

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Melanie – I’m not sure it would hold up very long. Very ripe bananas are best kept in the freezer for either banana ice cream or banana bread/muffins. Unless you enjoy that really strong banana flavor, I’m not sure how good that would be here.
