During the hot summer months, the last thing I want to do is bake desserts in a hot oven. I love entertaining so I need some delicious no bake dessert ideas like this no bake Banana Pudding recipe that is perfect for Fourth of July.

My family likes to get together for the Fourth of July to cookout and watch the fireworks. At any good Southern BBQ you have to have banana pudding for dessert! It’s a must have staple for my family.
I wanted to share my family’s favorite no bake banana pudding recipe with you because it is so easy to make and there are never any left overs!
This does make a very large bowl to feed a crowd so keep that in mind. If you will be having just a few people over for your summer BBQs or get togethers, you may want to just half the recipe.
With my recipe I always use the original NILLA Wafers, never the store brand. It just makes such a difference in the flavor to me.
NILLA Wafers are so versatile and are the perfect ingredient for no bake summer recipes. The possibilities really are endless. You can see even more no bake NILLA Wafers recipe ideas.
I can grab all of the ingredients I need at my local Walmart. That makes this recipe even more easy and convenient.
To make my no bake banana pudding more festive, I decided to use food coloring. You can feel free to leave it out for a regular looking banana pudding or switch out different colors for different holidays.
It’s just something that I thought the kids would love, and boy was I right!

Red, White, & Blue No Bake Banana Pudding Recipe
- 5 cups of milk
- 3 small boxes Vanilla pudding and pie filling
- 8 oz sour cream
- 16 oz whipped topping
- 7 large bananas, sliced
- 2 boxes NILLA Wafers
- 1 bottle each of red and blue food coloring
- Mix milk, vanilla pudding, sour Cream and 8oz (1/2) of the whipped topping with mixer for about 2 min. or until thickened.
2. Divide mixture into two bowls and add red food coloring to one bowl and blue food coloring to the other and mix. Add more color as desired.
3. In the bottom of a large bowl, add a layer of NILLA Wafers, then a layer of bananas, then pour in the blue pudding mixture.

5. Top with the rest of the whipped topping.
6. Garnish with crumbled NILLA Wafers and line bowl with wafers.
7. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
I did have to use the entire bottles of food coloring to get it the color that I was going for. I was pleased at how the colors were able to remain separated in the bowl for a festive look.
The kids loved eating the pudding and my daughter particularly liked mixing the colors together so she could have purple pudding!
