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.

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

Comforting and extra delicious! This super easy and creamy slow cooker banana coconut pudding will be your new favorite dessert! - Kudos Kitchen by Renee #SundaySupper

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.

  6. I’ve never made a pudding in the slow cooker, but I bet it’s super creamy! Love the flavors in this banana coconut verison!

    • This was the first time I’d made a pudding in my slow cooker, but it won’t be the last. I’m thinking chocolate pudding is next 🙂

  7. Thank you for your wonderful blog. I look forward to reading it every day.

  8. What a great treat to make on a day off! I might try it without the coconut first though.

  10. I want to pull out my slow cooker right now and make a huge batch of this pudding!

  11. I love a good banana pudding and hello slow cooker too! wow.

  12. This sounds like such a great pudding to make for the kiddos! Yum!

  13. Slow cooker desserts are awesome, and I’m loving the flavors here!

  14. OMG. I’ve never made a slow cooker dessert before, and it’s high time I tried! My husband and daughter will LOVE this combination!

  15. Super creamy and easy to make!

  16. You win dessert of the day! This looks amazing!

  17. This pudding seems to be so healthy and perfect for my breakfasts!

  18. Looks delicious!

  19. Quite a handy recipe as when I don’t get to my bananas, I always peel them place in a ziplock and toss in the freezer. They are also wonderful buzzed up frozen in the food processor as ice cream, but one can only do that so many times before getting bored. Now pudding sounds like a great diversion!

  20. My slow cooker just jumped for joy! Such a fantastic recipe! Thank you!

  21. You had me at banana pudding! What a great idea to make it in the slow cooker! This recipe looks so easy and so yummy that I’ll have to make sure I have company when I make it or I just might eat the whole pot. Btw, I love the addition of the coconut into the mix too for that little tropical flair.
