This Banana Ice Cream Pudding dessert is so creamy and delicious!

One of my favorite treats of all time growing up was my moms Banana Ice Cream Cake. It’s creamy, fluffy and had the crunch of ritz crackers in it. So when I saw Magnolia Bakery dropped their Banana Pudding recipe I decided to combined the two!

The ingredients are so simple: boxed pudding, vanilla ice cream, Nilla wafers, banana…but a few fun techniques transform these common ingredients into a beautiful dessert. I can’t urge you enough to try it!

This banana ice cream pudding dessert is creamy, fluffy and so delicious!


  • 1/2 container vanilla Ice Cream

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 28 Nilla Wafers cookies, 1 box
  • 4 medium bananas
  • 1 container cool whip
  • cinnamon for topping


  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, blend pudding mix and ice cream – let chill in the freezer for at least an hour.
  • After the mixture has chilled and is somewhat firm, beat cold whipping cream in the bowl of an electric mixer until the cream is fluffy.
  • Begin assembly by adding pudding, cookies, and a few slices of banana. Repeat. Add a third layer if possible (depending on your dishes). Chill assembled desserts at least 30 minutes or up to 6 hours. Shortly before serving, add cool whip + cinnamon or an extra garnish of a few broken cookies and a slice of banana if you want!
