With just 7 ingredients, this easy vegan banana pudding comes together in one pot and a blender, and takes just 30 minutes. It's a sweet and creamy dessert that's completely vegan.


Units Scale

Banana Pudding:

  • 1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 4 large bananas)
  • 1 14.5 oz can lite coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2-3 tablespoons cornstarch

To Make a Parfait:

  • Vegan vanilla wafers
  • Vegan whipped cream


  1. Add bananas, coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla, lemon juice, cinnamon and cornstarch to a blender and blend for 20-30 seconds, until smooth.
  2. Add banana mixture to a medium sized saucepan and heat to medium high, whisking constantly. Once the mixture comes to a gentle boil, reduce the heat to medium low and simmer gently for 10-12 minutes, whisking often.
  3. Remove the pan from heat and let cool, then transfer to refrigerator to chill for 2-3 hours, until completely cooled. Serve topped with whipped cream and vanilla wafers. 


Nutrition facts are for pudding only.

The pudding will thicken up once it's in the fridge, so don't be too concerned if it doesn't look thick enough when it comes off the stove.

Add turmeric: Since bananas will oxidize during the cooking process and during cooling, if you want a yellower color in your pudding, you can add 1/4 - 1/8 teaspoon of turmeric.

Use ripe bananas: these will be much easier to mash and will also create a creamier texture.

Stir constantly: while the pudding is cooking on the stove, be sure to stir frequently to prevent burning the pudding.

Storage: Store in an airtight container and enjoy within 3 days.
