Chilly Banana Pudding

By Jamie and Bobby Deen

We love banana pudding…in a mason jar, trifle dish, casserole dish or a glass…as long as we get to eat it, we don’t care what you serve it in. This Chilly Banana Pudding is yet another way to get the banana puddin’ love we need in another form. It’s a little more of an “adult” version, but sure brings out the kid in both of us every time we eat it.

Chilly Banana Pudding

1⁄2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups whole milk
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon rum (optional)
2 ripe bananas, sliced
Coconut sorbet or vanilla ice cream


In a saucepan, whisk together sugar and cornstarch. Slowly add milk. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Reduce heat to medium. Cook 5 minutes or until thickened; stir constantly. Remove from heat.

Beat egg yolks until smooth. Whisking constantly, slowly add hot milk mixture (be careful not to curdle eggs). Return egg mixture to saucepan; cook over medium-low heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; add vanilla and, if desired, rum.

Divide banana slices among four 12-ounce glasses. Spoon pudding over top. Chill for 2 hours or until set. Serve with sorbet.

Can someone tell me how to print a specific recipe . Everytime I try I get pages of stuff I don’t want. I really want that bacon wrapped chicken but don’t want everything that follows it.

This pudding recipe sounds wonderful, but where does the sorbet or ice cream come in— is the pudding to be served alongside the pudding, or mixed in together?  Thank you.

This was so easy and delicious! I have never made pudding from scratch…have always used the boxed type with the big red “J”. This was so simple with just five ingredients.  My family ate it all and wanted more!
