Banana Pudding Cream Puffs

This recipe is for my Aunt Leisa, who loves banana pudding more than anyone else I know….including me. 🙂

Ok, get ready to see a lot of cream puff posts in the next few weeks because I’ve kind of become obsessed with them! I’m stuffing profiteroles with whatever I can think of!

It’s madness.

But these cream puffs, these are special. They’re special because they taste like you’re taking a bite of banana pudding! Which, btw, is my favorite pudding! Anyway, you have the actual cream puff (or profiterole, as some like it) that tastes like a Nilla wafer, the vanilla pudding, chunks of banana, and whipped cream! What more could you want in life?!?!?!?

Banana Pudding Cream Puffs

  • 1 recipe pat a choux (add a splash of vanilla into the dough as well)
  • 1 box instant vanilla pudding
  • 2 bananas, diced
  • 1/4-1/2 c heavy cream
  • 2-4 tbsp. sugar

Once you make your pat a choux, make your pudding according to the package directions. Add the bananas and let set up in the fridge until your cream puffs have completely cooled. Pour it into a piping bag with tip#12, and carefully fill each cream puff by putting the tip into the hole on the bottom and squeezing. Do NOT overstuff! 🙂 Let them chill in the fridge until ready to serve.

Whip the cream in a stand mixer with the whisk attachment and add the sugar depending on how sweet you want it. Whip it until it forms stiff peaks, then put it in another piping bag with tip#32. Pipe a few stars here and there on the cream puffs, then serve.

I also made these, for those who don’t like banana pudding! Ice Cream filled profiteroles! Instead of filling them with banana pudding, I cut them in half, put a little scoop of vanilla ice cream in the center, put the top back on, decorated them with whipped cream, and poured on some chocolate sauce (half a cup of chocolate chips and a few splashes of heavy cream melted over a double boiler). Messy, but delicious! Enjoy!
