  • Two 3.4 ounce boxes of instant vanilla pudding
  • 5 bananas lightly ripe, not over ripe
  • 3 1/2 cups milk
  • 11 ounce box vanilla wafer cookies


  • Mix up your pudding with the milk first, and chill in the refrigerator for at least 5 minutes. This will prevent the bananas from too much air exposure, when you start layering, and turning a yucky color.
  • Then start layering a 9 x 9 baking dish with your ingredients.
  • First, a layer of vanilla wafer cookies, then a layer of sliced banana, and then half of the pudding mixture.
  • Repeat another layer of cookies, bananas and the rest of the pudding.
  • Cover and refrigerate till you're ready to serve. Then top with about 1/2 cup of crushed vanilla wafers to make it look pretty.
