When CJ and I visited Georgia last year, CJ bought me a best of Georgia cookbook. I love looking at traditional cookbooks and seeing how I can change the recipes to something a little bit more low carb high fat friendly.
When we received high key vanilla wafers in our keto Krate this month, I thought this would be the perfect time to make the easy banana pudding I saw in my cookbook.
This quick and easy Banana Pudding just might be the perfect dessert! The no-bake treat requires only 5 ingredients and 15 minutes of prep for a cool, creamy, sweet treat that you can assemble in advance.
With low-carb vanilla wafers, Jello instant pudding, just a few slices of ripe bananas, and fresh whipped cream, this semi homemade banana pudding recipe is ideal for those days when you don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen!
Best of all, this semi homemade recipe takes advantage of plenty of shortcuts — from Jell-O instant pudding, and super quick whipped cream.
You don’t have to make a custard from scratch or whip up your own meringue. Instead, the quick dessert comes together in about 15 minutes…and always disappears fast.
I’m not kidding when I say that this no-bake recipe is quick and easy! There’s no need to stress over made-from-scratch meringue; and no need to stir custard in a saucepan on the stovetop.
Once your ingredients are ready, it’s just a matter of assembling the dessert and sticking it in the refrigerator!
A word on bananas…
Now before you call the keto cops…I am using less than half a banana over four servings of dessert. If you absolutely are opposed to banana, then omit it. However, please note, this recipe is called low carb NOT keto for this reason.
A few substitutes….
You can use sugar-free vanilla pudding instead of banana if you are unable to find sugar-free banana pudding, and use banana extract for flavor.
You may use almond flour crumbs toasted in a dry pan for a few minutes to sub for the cookie crumbs, or use another flavor.
CJ’S TEST FOLLOW UP:
This low carb banana pudding was a nice little treat. One of those special occasion desserts you pull out when you just want something different. The way Sarah made it was very easy, and she also gave everyone lots of options and substitutions. I really enjoyed it, especially since I hadn’t had any version of Banana pudding for years. Enjoy!
