How to Make Strawberry Banana Pudding:

First, grab a large mixing bowl. Empty 2-packets of instant vanilla pudding into the bowl.

After that, pour in 4-cups of cold milk. Use your hand mixer to combine the ingredients into a smooth vanilla pudding.

The pudding mix has been combined in a bowl.

Next, fold in the whipped topping using a rubber spatula or spoon.

Now, you can use a tub of it or make your own Chantilly whipped cream. It’s up to you.

Afterward, slice up the bananas and stir them into the pudding mixture. Go ahead and wash and dry the strawberries.

Also, remove the stems and slice them up because you’ll need the berries for one of the final steps.

Then, once the banana slices have been stirred into the mixture, set it aside. Grab a large baking dish.

Line the bottom of the dish with wafer cookies and pour the pudding right on top of the wafers.

Strawberry Banana Pudding Tips:

  • You can layer our strawberry banana pudding in mason jars. However, you will need to purchase and use the Nilla mini-wafers. Otherwise, the larger wafers may not fit into the mouth of the jar.
  • To avoid soggy cookies, you could skip placing them into the bottom of the dish and instead, serve a them fresh with everything serving.
  • For even more strawberry flavor, consider stirring in extra sliced strawberries into the pudding along with the bananas.
