  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • a pinch salt
  • 1 1/2 cups 2% milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 ripe banana mashed
  • 1 ripe banana cut into slices
  • 1 cup Nilla wafers

Homemade Whipped Cream

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar


  • Whisk eggs into a large bowl and set it aside.
  • Bring flour, sugar, salt, milk, and vanilla extract to a pot and boil under medium heat. Whisk continuously throughout this whole time to prevent mixture from browning and sticking to the bottom of the pot. Once it comes to a boil, lower heat to medium low and cook until it reaches a slightly thicker consistency. Don't forget to whisk continuously! Remove from heat when it is done.
  • Slowly add pudding mixture a few tablespoons at a time into egg mixture, while using the other hand to whisk the egg mixture continuously when combining the two mixtures.
  • Once the two mixtures are combine, pour it back into the pot and heat under medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Whisk continuously!
  • Turn off heat, add mashed bananas and sweetened condense milk to pudding. Mix to combine.
  • Transfer pudding to a separate container, let it cool in room temperature for 30 minutes, then refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours until pudding is cold.
  • To make homemade whipped cream, whisk together heavy whipping cream and sugar under high speed using a stand mixer or hand held mixture, until whipped cream is thickened and no longer in liquid form. This will take at least a few minutes. Store whipped cream in refrigerator until pudding is cold. Alternatively, use store-bought cool whip and skip the homemade whipped cream step!
  • Layer pudding, sliced bananas, Nilla wafers, whipped cream/ cool whip onto a jar, bowl, or mug. Repeat to add another layer. Then top with a slice of banana and Nilla wafer.
  • Repeat Step 8 to fill up three more jars.
  • Let pudding sit for ~30 minutes so that Nilla wafers soften. Then serve and enjoy!
