  • 1 package instant vanilla pudding (3.4-3.9 oz package)
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream


  • Pour the instant vanilla pudding mix in a medium sized mixing bowl.  To that, add the heavy whipping cream.
  • With a hand mixer, start mixing slowly at first (so you don’t get pudding mix powder everywhere) and then once the two ingredients are combined, beat until you get a light and fluffy whipped pudding mixture.
  • Once you are done mixing it’s ready to use.  It should be the consistency of a thick buttercream.
  • If you aren’t enjoying it right away, store in the fridge until you are ready to eat.


You can make the whipped pudding thicker or thinner depending on how much heavy whipping cream you add.If you are looking for a thicker consistency (to eat with a spoon), add a little less heavy cream. Want to use it as a donut filling, use a little more, so that it’s easily pipeable
Pay attention to the size of the box of pudding. You are looking for the little guys (3.4 - 3.9 oz) not the bigger ones.
