Banana pudding is a big deal around my house. Pretty much everyone likes it but I have a couple of family members that really LOVE it. I make it whenever my Navy son comes home on leave and then other times when I get a chance. I really love making things for the family that they appreciate and that makes them happy but I have to say I really HATE making banana pudding.

I hate making it because it is a temptation that I could do without. One of two things is going to happen if I make the stuff — either I am going to be craving banana pudding and be grumpy OR I am going to cave to the siren song of that creamy decadent mixture and blow my carb allowance for the next decade… and I will be grumpy.

I do not know why I hadn’t thought of making a low carb banana pudding before but I just never did. Until now.

So, technically I could have tossed the sugar free pudding mix and some heavy cream together and called it a day but I wanted it to taste like MY banana pudding, or at least as close as I could get. Rich, creamy goodness with pieces of vanilla cookie in it.

Of course the cookie was out of the equation but the almond crumble works just fine. You still get the creamy pudding and the vanilla cookie texture. This is super rich. I promise you that 4-ounces will likely be as much as you want at a time. Luckily it freezes beautifully so you can make a batch and then have it ready whenever you want.

I used monkfruit in mine but you can use what you like. I estimate you’ll need about 1/4 cup of sugar free sweetener like Swerve if you are not going to use stevia or monkfruit.

Monkfruit is an all natural sweetener that’ s sweeter than sugar but doesn’t have the aftertaste that stevia can have sometimes.  I also used Torani sugar free vanilla syrup to increase the sweetness and flavor of this dessert.

  1. This is an absolutely delicious dessert! So easy to make too. I plan on trying it with other flavors of pudding. Great to have those little jars stacked in the fridge! Thank you so much. Love your blog!!!

    • Aww… thanks Janet!!! I just ate my last one so it’s time to make more!

    • Have you tried any other flavors? I am definitely going to check out the sugar free pudding next time I am at the store.

    • I couldn’t wait! I bought sugar free chocolate pudding and used Torani chocolate syrup. Added pure vanilla for the extract. Yummo! My next flavor will be white chocolate with hazelnut extract and caramel syrup. This is great fun!

    • Oh that sounds yummy!

    • I haven’t. I plan to though.

  2. This tastes great, but the pudding was too thick for my tastes. I made the pudding thinner by adding unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and added 1 tsp of banana extract along with 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract to the pudding. I also added 1/4 tsp of salt to the almond crumb to give the flavors a bit more depth. I’ll most definitely be making this again, in fact, I’m betting that I could fool my sugarholic family with this recipe. It’s that good!

  3. Hi Marye, Made a new flavor with lemon pudding and lemon extract, vanilla syrup. Delish. Today it will be keylime, made with lemon pudding and keylime juice.

    • Sounds wonderful!!!

  4. Just made this! Wow!!! I added twice the butter, made it all in one bowl, and layered it with cool whip, and it could’ve passed for “real banana pudding”.
    My husband said it was his favorite low carb dessert I’ve made. Thank you!!!!

    • Thank you! I am SO glad you liked it!

  5. Can I put this in the oven or microwave for that southern flavor of warm banana pudding?

    Reply
    • Pretty sure it will melt.

  6. Was hoping for a recipe without a mix to buy. I mean, I could just make that pudding mix. I appreciate your efforts, but I also have no use for a whole bottle of Torani. Maybe I will find a way to make something like this with the layers without those items.
    Feel free not to post this. I do like your site for some recipes.
