I don’t make a lot of slow cooker desserts because I usually reserve my slow cooker for savory dishes.
However, the few I have made are really good. I hope you’ll check them out if you’re looking to step out of the slow cooker rut as I did.
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.
What makes this slow cooker pudding recipe work?
This slow cooker banana coconut pudding is basically a dump and stir recipe, as most slow cooker recipes are (in my opinion). That’s what makes them so apPEELing (sorry, banana humor), and non-threatening.
Honestly, the only thing you really need to do to make this pudding a standout is to toast the coconut in a dry skillet to bring out its coconutty flavor before adding it into the cooker with all the other ingredients.
Adding the pinch of salt is also important. It may seem like a tiny amount (and it is), but even a tiny amount of salt can help bring out the flavor and sweetness in any kind of dessert. Salt is always a key ingredient in both sweet and savory dishes. Please do not omit it.
Sweetened condensed milk. Because, well, sweetened condensed milk. LOL
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. Not that I’d know anything about that! 😉
Please also note, this pudding will thicken in the refrigerator as it cools… IF it even gets that far! LOL
The easy step by step instructions for making slow cooker banana coconut pudding;
- Place the overripe bananas in a small (4 quart) slow cooker and mash them well.
- Pour in two cans of the sweetened condensed milk.
- 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.
- After four hours time, add two tablespoons butter and 1 egg yolk that has been mixed with 2 tablespoons of the hot pudding mixture.
- Stir the egg yolk and pudding to temper the egg.
- Stir the tempered egg in the with pudding mixture.
- Cover and continue to cook for an additional hour.
- Cool the pudding and refrigerate. The pudding will thicken as it cools.

How to toast coconut in a skillet;
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.
Can I use a slow cooker that is larger than 4-Quarts to make this recipe?
If you don’t have a small slow cooker (4 quarts), you can definitely use a larger slow cooker but you’ll need to cut down your cooking time by half, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing OR double the recipe and make more pudding!
