Banana Pudding Shot FAQs

Can you make pudding shots ahead of time?

You sure can! I recommend finding plastic shot cups with lids in case you want to throw lids on them until time to enjoy them. They’re good in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours if needed.

Can I use a different liquor for banana pudding shots?

Absolutely, we used Bacardi rum, but coconut rum or banana flavored rum would be delicious! You could also use vodka (I recommend whipped cream flavored) or any liquor you have on hand, really.

Can I use a different flavor pudding?

Absolutely, if you don’t have banana pudding you could opt for any flavor you like- chocolate or vanilla would be delicious, or cheesecake! You can keep the nilla wafers or pass on them- totally up to you. You can create your very own custom pudding shots!
