I know that everyone will say that bananas aren’t keto-friendly, and that’s true. But no one said that you can’t enjoy banana flavor on keto in another way.
Today, I’m going to show you how to make the creamiest and delicious keto banana pudding recipe that you will ever try. Yes, you read right, Keto Banana Pudding that needs just a few low carb ingredients.
It’s impressive that a serving of this low carb banana dessert has only 2g carbs. Since we’re using pure banana extract, there’s no need to worry about carbs.
Are Bananas Keto?
We announce with sadness that bananas aren’t keto. Instead, they are high-carb food and would provide a source of sugar and raise blood sugar. However, if you’re not overly sensitive, you can enjoy a few slices from time to time.
We made a guide that gives some precise answers to help you get through banana carving, even if you are on a keto diet.
Is Banana Pudding Keto?
Definitely not. To make regular banana pudding, you need sugar, flour, and banana puree.
But don’t worry because just like I said in my latest post: Nothing beats keto. With just the proper substitutes, you can make your keto banana pudding, which is even more delicious than the regular one.
How Many Carbs Are In Banana Pudding?
If you are talking about a classic banana pudding one, you can call her Carb Bomb instead of Banana Pudding because it contains over40 grams per serving.
About Keto Banana Pudding, I am happy to announce to you that it contains only 2g net carbs.
Ingredients for the Keto Banana Pudding
You won’t believe how few ingredients you will need to make this delicious keto banana pudding.
- Heavy whipping cream –almost 30 minutes before you start making the pudding, I recommend taking it out from the fridge and letting the cream at room temperature. To make a dairy-free keto banana pudding, replace it with canned coconut cream.
- Almond milk – Unsweetened milk is necessary, and you can choose your favorite plant-based milk. I used almond milk, but coconut or hemp milk make this pudding just as delicious.
- Egg yolks – Even if you need to use only the yolks, you don’t have to throw out the whites because there are many recipes that you can make with them. You can try my zero-carb keto cloud bread.
- Sweetener – I used Erythritol in this recipe, but Monk Fruit sweetener or Allulose work as well.
- Butter – Make sure you use unsalted butter. If you’re using salted butter, make sure you don’t add salt.
- Banana extract – What’s keto banana pudding without the banana? This extract will give the keto banana pudding the perfect flavor without even using the natural fruit.
- Vanilla extract – You guys know already – almost no dessert without vanilla. It’s my favorite!
- Xanthan gum – I have two tips for you – don’t forget about this ingredient and use the right amount. Too much xanthan gum can compromise the texture of this pudding, making it too sticky and gummy. Don’t use more than 1/4 tsp in this recipe. It’s best to start with 1/4 tsp and whisk until it starts to thicken.
How to Make the Best Keto Banana Pudding
The ingredients for this keto banana pudding are enough for making two or four delicious servings. Here’s everything you need to do:
- Bring to a boil the whipping cream and unsweetened milk over medium heat.

Tips for Making the Perfect Keto Banana Pudding
If you want to have it from the first try the creamiest and delicious keto banana pudding, you need to read these tips:
- Cover the pudding with plastic wrap before you put it in the fridge to ensure no air gets into the pudding.
- When whisking the egg mixture into the warm cream, whisk continuously. If the cream is too hot, the eggs will begin to cook.
- It may seem hard, but once the egg mixture and the cream are blended, keep stirring for the cremiest texture.
How to Serve Keto Banana Pudding
I choose to serve this sugar-free banana pudding generously topped with whipped cream and a mini keto snickerdoodle cookie.
But there are other options:
- you can make some beautiful layers of pudding and cookies and on top of that, add some whipped cream;
- in a baking dish, you can put a layer made from crumbled keto banana bread, then add a layer of keto banana pudding and top with whipped cream;
- or you can serve it simple as it is.
