How Long to Chill

It really depends on how cold you want your banana pudding to be. If you’re in a hurry, you can pop it in the fridge for an hour or so. But if you want it to be super chilled, then you should leave it in for a few hours, or even overnight. The longer you chill it, the more set the pudding will be. And that’s not yo mama’s banana pudding!

How to Store Banana Pudding

Banana pudding is a delicious dessert that can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge. Here are some tips on how to store banana pudding:

  • Banana pudding can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • If you are not planning on eating the banana pudding right away, you can freeze it for up to 2 months.
  • When ready to eat, thaw the banana pudding in the fridge overnight, and then enjoy!

Do you have to refrigerate banana pudding?

No, you don’t have to refrigerate banana pudding. However, if you do choose to refrigerate it, the pudding will last up to two weeks.

Why do my bananas turn black in the banana pudding?

There are a few reasons why your bananas might turn black in banana pudding. One reason could be that you’re not using ripe bananas. Ripe bananas have more sugar, which can prevent the blackening. Another reason could be that you’re not cooking the pudding long enough. The longer you cook it, the less likely the bananas are to turn black. Finally, make sure you’re using fresh milk and not condensed milk, as this can also cause the bananas to turn black.

Can I Make This In Advance?

Yes, you certainly can make banana pudding in advance! In fact, it’s actually best if you do because it gives the flavors a chance to meld together. Simply follow the recipe up until the point where you would refrigerate it. Cover tightly and store in the fridge for up to 2 days. When you’re ready to serve, just give it a good stir and enjoy!
