  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 4 hours (includes chilling time)
  • Servings: 6


  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 package (12-ounce) vanilla wafer cookies (make sure they’re vegan)
  • 2 ripe bananas, sliced
  • 1 cup coconut whipped cream (store-bought or homemade)
  • Vegan chocolate chips (optional, for garnish)


  1. Prepare the Base: In a medium saucepan, combine the mashed bananas, sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Mix well. Gradually whisk in the almond milk until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Cook the Pudding: Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens. This should take about 8-10 minutes. Once it thickens, remove it from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  3. Layer the Pudding: In a serving dish or individual dessert cups, begin by placing a layer of vanilla wafer cookies at the bottom.
  4. Add Sliced Bananas: Arrange a layer of sliced bananas over the cookies.
  5. Pour the Pudding: Pour half of the cooked banana pudding over the banana and cookie layer.
  6. Repeat: Add another layer of cookies, sliced bananas, and the remaining pudding.
  7. Chill: Cover the dish or cups and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, allowing the pudding to set and the flavors to meld.
  8. Serve: Just before serving, top with a generous dollop of coconut whipped cream and a sprinkle of vegan chocolate chips (if desired).

Vegan banana pudding Tips:

  • Ensure your vanilla wafer cookies are truly vegan by checking the ingredients list.
  • Make your own coconut whipped cream by refrigerating a can of full-fat coconut milk, then whipping the solid part with a touch of sweetener.
  • For extra flavor, you can sprinkle a dash of cinnamon over the banana layers.
  • The longer the pudding chills, the better the flavors meld, so consider making it a day in advance for special occasions.

Enjoy your delicious vegan banana pudding!
