  • Cherries – for a fun garnish and a pop of pretty red color.
  • Whipped Cream – adds another layer of presentation and sweetness.
  • Vanilla Wafer Cookies – provide a crunchy base layer that tastes delicious alongside the creamy pudding.
  • Condiment Cups – these work perfectly as plastic shot glasses, and they usually come with lids for easy storage and transportation.

How to Make Banana Cream Pudding Shots

  1. Combine the 99 Bananas, banana pudding mix, milk, and whipped topping in a large mixing bowl, blending together well.

    The vanilla wafer cookie layer tastes just like a pie crust, making these shots feel like a little bite of boozy banana creme pie.

  2. Crush 2 nilla wafer cookies per condiment cup. Line the bottom of each condiment cup with crushed cookies.

    You’ll love how rich and creamy this pudding mixture is. Flavored with banana liqueur, it’s bursting with a ripe fruitiness that’s impossible to resist!

  3. Transfer pudding mixture to condiment cups. Top with whipped cream and a cherry.


What is 99 Bananas?

The 99 Bananas proof rating is right in the name, 99 proof! That translates to 49.5% ABV. So this 99 proof banana liqueur is probably a bit stronger than many other fruit-based spirits you’ve had in the past.

Can you drink 99 Bananas straight?

Yes, this banana liqueur can be enjoyed on its own. Take banana shots for a quick burst of fruity, boozy flavor, or even enjoy on the rocks and sip casually.

You’ll love the fruity flavor of bananas, perfect for the summertime.

How much alcohol is in a shot of 99?

Because this liqueur has such high alcohol content, a 1.5oz shot of 99 Bananas has about as much alcohol as a shot of some vodkas and tequilas, if not more.

Don’t let the fruity taste fool you, this is a strong spirit!

How long will 99 Bananas shots last?

If you store your banana pudding shots in the fridge, they should last 5 days. Be sure to keep them covered. Many plastic condiment cups come with lids, which are great for storage.

The shots should only be left at room temperature for a couple hours at a time. Leave them to chill until you’re ready to serve.
