How long does banana pudding last? You can store banana pudding in the refrigerator for three straight days without worrying about it. But make sure to cover it properly; otherwise, the flavor won’t be the same. At the end of the third day, you may notice changes in color, but it’s all good till now and ready to be eaten. But storing it for more days is no good; the desert will get watery, and you won’t enjoy eating it.
But you know what, when you try our banana pudding, there won’t be any thought of storing it because you’re going to eat it all in that bowl and want more and more. So good luck with that!
How Long Can You Keep Banana Pudding?
But if your guests are coming over shortly and you’re trying to check off the desert, banana pudding won’t take much time.
After your guests have left, the desert container isn’t empty, and you need to store it. Is it safe to refrigerate the banana pudding?
Without refrigeration, the pudding can lose its quality if left outside for long hours. Don’t even think of leaving your desert outside, hoping to enjoy it in the morning. The only thing you’ll get the next day is a weird smell from the pudding and some creepy insects savoring it.
So what’s the secret to keeping the pudding fresh for long? It’s best not to leave it at room temperature for more than two hours. Refrigerating it in a closed plastic container will keep it in good shape for at least 3-4 days.
Freezing this yummy dessert for too long is another bad idea. Once you defrost your banana pudding, the taste and appearance won’t be the same. So to keep enjoying the freshness and flavor, don’t freeze it for over fifteen days.
