Kids in the Kitchen: Banana Bear Pudding

Pin ItBanana Bear Pudding 4

I keep seeing banana pudding on Pinterest that uses the typical vanilla wafer cookies.  And don’t get me wrong; it looks yummy!  But I thought it would be more fun for the kids if we used some teddy bear graham crackers instead.  Oh, and we sweetened up the pudding a bit, too! 


Banana Bear Pudding

Here’s what you’ll need:

Banana Bear Pudding 1

  • a few bananas
  • one package of instant vanilla pudding
  • about a cup of milk (we used fat free)
  • one container of cool whip
  • a few handfuls of teddy bear graham crackers

  1. Have your little one practice their cutting skills by using a dull butter knife to slice up the bananas.
  2. In a bowl, whip together the pudding mix and the milk until smooth.
  3. Fold 3/4 of the tub of cool whip (leaving the remaining cool whip for garnish) into the pudding mixture.
  4. Layer the graham crackers, pudding mixture, and bananas (repeating as needed) into a serving dish or glass cup. 
  5. Garnish top with whipped cream and a teddy bear!

The kids LOVED making this yummy dessert.  And they could make almost all of it themselves.  I only needed to help make sure the pudding and cool whipped were sufficiently combined.
