Vegan Comfort Food: Banana Pudding

Kirk is feeling under the weather – and I am hoping he isn’t getting the nasty croup the rest of us have had over the past month. So I felt he needed some wonton soup and banana pudding tonight. It cures a lot of ails! Especially with the nasty change in weather. It is cold, wet and dark outside. With a nice helping of a windstorm coming.



I changed the recipe from earlier puddings I have made, by using only a third of the sugar. So do taste it before taking off the heat, and whisk in more if desired. With super ripe bananas and the wafers, it was perfect for us.


Banana Pudding


  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar, preferably organic
  • ¼ cup cornstarch, or favorite heat stable thickener
  • Pinch fine salt
  • 3 cups unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • 1½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 ripe bananas, thinly sliced
  • 1 batch vegan vanilla wafers


Line an 8×8″ glass dish with as many wafers as you can fit in (it’ll depend on how big your cookies are).

In a medium saucepan whisk the dry ingredients with the milk. Heat over medium-low, whisking often, until it comes to boil, then whisk constantly until thickened.

Take off heat, whisk in vanilla, stir in banana slices. Spread carefully over the wafers, poking any banana slices down into the pudding and smooth out. Top with wafers until covered, pressing gently down on the cookies into the pudding.

Chill until cold before serving. Store any leftovers tightly wrapped.

Serves 4 to 8, depending on sweet tooth.




  1. This looks great! I’ve never made banana pudding, but I know I would love it. I’ll try it with coconut milk one of these days.

  2. My husband would love this..,he loves bananas! Looks sweet and comforting!

  3. I thought I’d never have banana pudding again. Yay for Sarah! You definitely have a super power! I can’t wait to make this!

  4. Hope he feels better! This looks like perfect health food. Or at least perfect food for good health. 🙂

  5. Sounds so delicious, under the weather or not. I hope you all feel better soon. Seems like the croupy stuff won’t go away once it arrives. Do you have a recipe for your wonton soup?

  6. I never tasted a banana pudding in my life but it looks pretty & tasty too.

    Is this someting typical American? I must make this lovely dessert soon! 🙂 Yummm!

  7. Must try! This looks amazing!
