Banana Pudding with Graham Crackers

I’ve been looking for a good banana pudding recipe that is easy to make and doesn’t require gelatin. I finally found one! This no-bake recipe has all the ingredients you need in your pantry, including graham crackers for the crust. It’s so simple and tastes amazing. Make it this holiday season for friends or family, they won’t be disappointed!

prep: 15 mins additional: 4 hrs total: 4 hrs 15 mins Servings: 9 Yield: 9 servings


½ (14.4 ounce) package graham crackers, or more as needed

2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant French vanilla pudding mix

3 ½ cups cold 2% milk

2 large bananas, sliced, or more to taste

1 (1.3 ounce) envelope dry whipped topping mix (such as Dream Whip®)


Pour milk, pudding mix, and whipped topping mix into a large bowl; mix with an electric whisk or hand whisk until ingredients are combined and a thick pudding forms.

Break graham cracker sheets in half to form squares.

Cover the bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan with 9 graham cracker squares. Layer 1/2 of the banana slices on top in even rows and cover with 1/2 of the pudding mixture, using a spatula to spread it evenly. Repeat layers once more. Sprinkle the top with graham cracker crumbs, if desired.

Cover and refrigerate until fully chilled, 4 hours or longer. Cut into 9 squares to serve.
