There’s really no pudding involved at all, just vanilla yogurt. And the difference? Negligible. Takes 5 minutes to prepare, 5 hours to chill, and a lot of free time in between. It’s a win, win on those busy days. This recipe is written for a single serving, which easily adjusts to the amount of servings you need. If you want a little extra creaminess, a dollop of whipped cream definitely wont hurt anything.


  • about 8 Trader Joe’s Vanilla Wafers
  • a couple spoonfuls of good quality vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 banana, yellow but not too ripe


  1. In a small ramekin or glass dish, layer 3 wafers, a hefty dollop of yogurt, and 5 banana slices.
  2. Repeat.
  3. Lightly cover bananas with more vanilla yogurt. Top with 2 crushed wafers.
  4. Refrigerate for about 5 hours. Serve chilled.


• If your yogurt is a bit on the tart side, sweeten with maple syrup or honey.

• If you’re looking to jazz up the recipe a little, fold freshly whipped cream into the yogurt. It’ll lighten the texture and add an extra tinge of flavor.


  • Serving Size: 1 serving
