Keto Sugar-Free Banana Pudding Recipe (Quick & Creamy)

Remember eating instant pudding as a kid? Whether your favorite was chocolate or vanilla pudding or something else entirely, that sweet, no-bake treat was always so satisfying.

Just because you are an adult eating keto does not mean you have to sacrifice taste or miss out on your favorite comfort foods.

Our banana cream pudding will remind you of grandma’s banana cream pie with a fraction of the carbohydrates.

Why Make Sugar-Free Banana Pudding?

There are many reasons people prefer sugar-free desserts:

  • Cutting calories

  • Decrease sugar cravings

  • Less carbohydrates

  • Lower glycemic index (important to diabetics)

  • Personal preference

Is Sugar-Free Banana Pudding Good For You?

We are firm believers that it is.

Some people frame dietary choices as black and white. Have you ever tried to stick to a very strict diet? When you deny yourself things you really love to enjoy and crave, unfortunately, that can lead to difficulty in following the dietary changes. However, if you offer yourself grace and the opportunity to have treats in moderation, you are more likely to stick to it.

Rather than thinking about eating keto and following keto recipes as a diet, remind yourself that you are making lifestyle changes. Losing weight and maintaining steady blood sugar can help improve your overall health and well-being.

Sugar-Free Banana Pudding Recipe

  • ½ cup almond milk or coconut milk

  • ¾ cup heavy cream (heavy whipping cream)

  • ¼ cup mashed banana (about 1 small banana, very ripe)

  • 4 egg yolks large

  • 1/4 cup Fiberyum Tapioca Soluble Fiber Syrup

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ⅛ teaspoon xanthan gum


  • Mash the banana in a small bowl and set aside.

  • Put the cream, milk and powdered sweetener in a saucepan at medium heat. Bring to a simmer and then stir in the vanilla extract. Remove heat.

  • Whisk the egg yolks in a separate small bowl using an electric mixer. Once the egg mixture is fluffy, add the mashed banana and blend until combined.

  • Slowly pour half the cream mixture into the egg yolks while continuing to whisk. Then, pour the warm cream and egg yolk mixture back into the saucepan with the remaining cream, continuing to whisk with a hand whisk or the electric mixer.

  • Slowly heat the pudding mix over a low heat while whisking continuously, about 5-7 minutes. This is important to ensure that the egg yolks don't cook and curdle.

  • Turn off the heat and sprinkle xanthan gum over the surface and whisk some more.

  • Divide the mix between 4 dessert cups and chill in the fridge for about 1 hour. The pudding will thicken further as it cools.

  • Cover the low-carb banana pudding with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator.

What is a Good Substitute for Sugar?
