  • 2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 14 oz Can Evaporated Milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 ripe bananas mashed
  • 1/2 of a 3 oz box of instant banana cream pudding
  • 20 vanilla wafers crushed plus more for topping


  • In a bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form.
  • In a second bowl, combine the evaporated milk and instant banana pudding.
  • Mash 2 bananas and add to the evaporated milk combination. Stir until incorporated.
  • Add the crushed wafers and mix.
  • Fold the banana mixture into the whipping cream.
  • Pour into a metal loaf pan.
  • Cover and freeze for at least 6 hours. I usually freeze mine overnight.
  • Before serving, crush a few more vanilla wafers on top.


This is also super yummy with a few chocolate chips added in!
