Comforting and extra delicious! This super easy and creamy slow cooker banana coconut pudding will be your new favorite dessert! #SundaySupper
This week’s #SundaySupper theme is slow cooker comfort foods. At first, I considered all sorts of wonderful savory slow cooker dishes I could make and share. But then the more I thought about it, the more I thought a slow cooker dessert would be something a little bit unusual. Enter Slow Cooker Banana Coconut Pudding.
This slow cooker pudding is a complete winner, and I’m really happy I went in the dessert direction! Slow cooker banana coconut pudding is a comfort food for the soul, and it’s a dessert you’ll want to add to your list of recipes to make, ASAP!
I don’t make a lot of slow cooker desserts because as I’ve mentioned above, I usually reserve my slow cooker for savory dishes. However, the few I have made, I’ve shared here on my blog Kudos Kitchen. I hope you’ll check them out if you’re looking to step out of the slow cooker rut as I did. By clicking on the titles below, you’ll be taken directly to that particular recipe.

I know there are also slow cooker desserts in the round-up at the end of this post from the #SundaySupper group, so make sure you click on those titles and get those recipes as well.
Making comforting slow cooker banana coconut pudding requires a short list of ingredients; three overripe bananas, three fourth’s cup toasted coconut, two cans (14 ounces, each) sweetened condensed milk, two tablespoons butter, one egg yolk, one teaspoon pure vanilla extract, and a small pinch of salt. It’s basically a dump and stir recipe (as most slow cooker recipes are, IMO), and then the cooker does the majority of the work.
As you’ll notice in the photos and video that I’ve garnished my slow cooker banana coconut pudding with whipped cream and vanilla cookies before serving. Don’t forget to add those items to your grocery list if you’d also like to spruce up your pudding before serving.
WARNING: this slow cooker banana coconut pudding is SO GOOD, you may be tempted to eat it right out of the cooker, warm, with a spoon. Be aware; the pudding will thicken in the refrigerator as it cools… If it even gets that far! LOL

Add the toasted coconut, pure vanilla extract, and the salt.
Stir well to combine. Add the lid to the cooker and set to low. Cook for 4 hours. *Note – if using a larger size slow cooker, cut the cooking time by half!

Tools and equipment:

potato masher or forks
wooden spoon or spatula
dry skillet (for toasting coconut)
This recipe for slow cooker banana coconut pudding makes approximately 6 cups of creamy delicious pudding. If you don’t have a small slow cooker (6 quarts), you can definitely use a larger slow cooker but you’ll need to decrease your cooking time by half, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Also, you don’t need to toast the coconut, but it will bump up the flavor if you do. Toasting coconut is easy to do on the stovetop. Add the flaked coconut to a dry skillet and cook, stirring frequently, over medium/low heat. The coconut will brown quickly so don’t walk away from the stovetop while toasting coconut, or you’ll go from toasted to burnt in the blink of an eye.
