Vegan Banana Pudding

I’m going to let y’all in on a delicious secret: Vegan Banana Pudding.


It looks delicious, tastes great, and is totally easy to make.


A vegan banana pudding recipe with a creamy, silky texture and an irresistibly light flavor that will surprise even the most diehard non-vegan guests. Just 11 ingredients to accomplish this creamy treat!



When you think of bananas, the first thing that pops into your mind might not be vegan banana pudding. But it could be—and should be! Few desserts are as mouth-watering and as heavenly as this.


Dessert is an important part of my daily “diet”. Every night, my body tells me to look for something sweet to end the night. In the nutrition world, desserts are always the first things we’re told to “cut out”. But instead of taking them out of our life, what if we added in something to make them a little more nutritious? Next time you’re craving a sweet treat, skip the guilt and enjoy something packed with nutritional value that will satisfy your craving.


I love bananas in my desserts. They are so versatile. They can be used to make cakes, bread, or even pies. But one of my favorite ways to enjoy bananas is by using them in a simple dessert recipe like this. It’s creamy, soothing, and delicious! The best part about this recipe is how simple it is to make, just blend, stack, and let sit!



What’s in my recipe for Vegan Banana Pudding?


The best way to get the most out of this recipe is by using bananas. Bananas provide us with healthy antioxidants that fight against cancer cells as well as a cardiovascular disease while providing energy for your body.


Coconut milk and yogurt provide healthy fats without unhealthy trans fat, which can contribute to cardiovascular disease and liver problems.


Turmeric is healthy for your body as it has anti-inflammatory properties that are good for the heart, gastrointestinal tract, skin, joints, and brain health.


Lastly, feel free to use your favorite vanilla wafers, or try Siete’s delicious grain-free, Mexican wedding cookies (which I’m currently obsessed with!).


Given the impressive ingredient list, low added sugar, and the fact that Siete chips are my love language, I thought they’d be the perfect addition to my Vegan Banana Pudding. Adding these cookies is totally an option, but can certainly dress up your pudding.



So what are you waiting for? Turn healthy into delicious with this vegan banana pudding recipe! This sweet, creamy, wholesome Vegan Banana Pudding will definitely satisfy all of the dessert cravings you didn’t even know you had.
