  • 16 oz whipped topping (like cool whip)
  • 2 - 5.1 oz instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 6 cups milk
  • 3 to 4 large bananas sliced
  • nilla wafers or chessman cookies


  • Whip two boxes of 5.1 oz Instant Vanilla Pudding with 6 cups of milk in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer.  Beat the pudding for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add in the whipped topping and  in mix until well combined, creamy and fluffy. 
  • Layer Pudding Mixture on bottom of Dish. Then place cookies and sliced bananas on top of pudding mixture. Repeating layers ending with a pudding layer on top. Place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours to overnight until set and chilled.
  • Top with cookies or whipped cream. (This can be done before or after chilling - cookies will be softer if done before and chilled overnight)


Depending on what size of dish you are using will determine the amount of layers you will make and the amount of bananas and cookies you will use for each layer. 
Chill for 2 hours of until well set. I usually make this in the morning if serving in the evening or the night before if serving for lunch.
