What is banana pudding?

A classic southern recipe, banana pudding is a fluffy, creamy, dreamy dessert that you honestly need in your life! Even non-banana lovers will go crazy for this luxurious treat.

 

Our matcha banana pudding features luscious layers of matcha-infused pudding, whipped cream, fresh bananas, and Nilla wafers.

 

How do I serve banana pudding?

 

 

The classic way to serve banana pudding is to layer it in a trifle dish, but you can serve it in pretty much whatever you want! Try a mason jar for a personal sized portion, a large bowl, or even a baking dish.

 

What kind of matcha should I use?

 

 

 

Our Culinary Grade Matcha works great in this recipe! However, you can use whatever matcha you prefer.

 

Matcha Banana Pudding

Ingredients:

 

 

  • 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1½ cups ice cold water
  • 1 (3.4-ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix 
  • 3 tablespoons Culinary Grade Matcha, sifted
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1 (11-ounce) box vanilla wafers, roughly crushed up 
  • 4-5 ripe bananas, sliced

 

Directions:

 

  • Whisk together the cold water and sweetened condensed milk in a medium-sized bowl. In a separate bowl, add pudding mix and sifted matcha. Slowly whisk in the liquid mixture, until it is smooth and lump-free. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour until firm, or leave overnight.

 

 

  • Whip the heavy cream until it thickens, and stiff peaks form.

 

 

  • Using a rubber spatula, fold the whipped cream into the pudding mixture. Mix until well combined, and no streaks remain.

 

 

  • In serving dish of your choice, spread one-quarter of the pudding over the bottom and place a layer with one-third of the crushed up cookies and 1 of the sliced bananas to cover the layer. Continue the process until complete, ending with one final layer of pudding and a garnish of the remaining cookies.

 

 

  • Cover the dish and refrigerate until chilled and cookies soften a little bit.
