Hebni Banana Pudding

Prep time 30 mins
Chill time 2 hrs, 5 mins
Yield Makes 10 (1/2-cup) servings
This banana dessert is the signature recipe for the Hebni dietitians. We made chic individual servings, but you can serve it family style too.


  • 4 medium bananas, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 (1-oz.) package fat-free, sugar-free vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 2 cups 1% low-fat milk
  • 1 (8-oz.) container fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 50 reduced-fat vanilla wafers

How to Make It

  1. Place bananas in a medium bowl. Pour orange juice over bananas, and stir gently.

  2. Prepare vanilla pudding according to package directions in a large bowl using low-fat milk. Cover and chill 5 minutes. Stir in whipped topping.

  3. Drain bananas, discarding juice. Layer pudding, vanilla wafers, and banana slices in 10 (6-oz.) glasses. Chill 2 hours.

  4. Note: To serve family style, layer one-fourth each of vanilla wafers, bananas, and pudding mixture in a 3-qt. glass bowl. Repeat layers 3 times, ending with pudding mixture. Cover and chill 2 to 24 hours.
