  • 150g lady finger biscuits, chopped
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup condensed milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1.5 packets of vanilla pudding powder
  • 900ml thickened cream, divided
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut, toasted


  1. Prepare the Pudding:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the coconut cream, condensed milk, water, and pudding powder. Whip until the mixture thickens slightly. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to set.
  2. Whip the Cream:
    • After the pudding has set, whip 600ml of thickened cream until stiff peaks form. Fold this gently into the chilled pudding mixture to keep it light and airy.
    • In a separate bowl, whip the remaining 300ml of thickened cream with the icing sugar until thick.
  3. Assemble the Tray:
    • Spread a small amount of the vanilla pudding on the bottom of your serving tray.
    • Add a layer of chopped lady finger biscuits, followed by slices from two bananas.
    • Repeat the layering: add another layer of vanilla pudding, more biscuits, and the remaining two sliced bananas. Top with the final layer of vanilla pudding.
    • Spread the whipped cream and icing sugar mixture over the top, smoothing it out evenly.
    • Sprinkle the toasted desiccated coconut over the cream to cover.
  4. Chill and Serve:
    • Refrigerate the assembled tray for at least 6 hours, or overnight, to allow the flavors to meld and the pudding to firm up.
    • This dessert is best served chilled and can be stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Enjoy your Banana Coconut Pudding Tray, a delightful dessert that’s as easy to make as it is to love, and perfect for any occasion that calls for a sweet, satisfying treat.
