Magnolia Bakery’s Famous Banana Pudding

Welcome back to the blog!

Today, I thought I would share something a little bit different. Since I was a little girl, I’ve really been into baking cakes, cupcakes, and other kinds of desserts. For a while my mom and I even had our own business.

I recently recreated Magnolia Bakery’s Famous Banana Pudding at home and it came out amazing! Magnolia Bakery is a world famous bakery in New York. They have a location right by my internship, so I’ve become obsessed with their pudding!

When recreated this dessert, I realized it’s super easy and cheap!! I hope you’ll enjoy!

You’ll Need:

1 (14oz.) can sweetened condensed milk

1 1/2 cups cold water

1 (3.4 oz.) box vanilla instant pudding mix

3 cups heavy whipping cream 

1 box Nilla Wafers

4 medium bananas


In a bowl or an electric mixer bowl, blend the sweetened condensed milk and cold water. After, add in the pudding mix (powder) into the mixture and blend. When mixed well, cover the bowl and place it into the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight. 

After the pudding mixture is chilled and firm, beat in the cold heavy whipping cream by using a electric or hand mixer. When this mixture become nice and fluffy, add the firm pudding mixture to it. Use your spatula to gently fold the pudding mixture into the whipped mixture. The pudding mixture must be fully combined into the whipped cream.

Next, take out 1/2 of the box of Nilla Wafers into a bowl and start breaking them in half and/or little pieces. 

Then, slice 1/2 a banana into slices for the mixture and the rest to add before serving the dessert.

To assemble: in small cups, add a few broken cookies, a few slices of banana, and a layer of pudding. Repeat these actions until the cup if filled to the top. Add about 2 or 3 layers. 

Chill these prepared cups in a fridge for at least 30 minutes or 6 hours. Before serving, garnish the top of each cup with a few cookies and banana slices.

I got a very good reaction to this very simple dessert.

I probably didn’t spend more than $20 to make this delicious treat!!


I found the most surprising part of Magnolia’s recipe was the Nilla Wafer, which taste exactly like cake in this recipe. Let me know if you found anything surprising about Magnolia’s Famous Banana Pudding Recipe!!
