Banana Wafer Pudding- Great for Kids!

My daughter and I were watching Hungry Girl on the Cooking Channel and Lisa was making this! This is a great dessert for the kids and one that they can help you with in the kitchen! Very little mess and clean-up. If your kids like bananas and pudding, you need to try this recipe! Lisa uses reduced fat ingredients but if adding extra calories is not a concern, go for the regular vanilla pudding and Nilla Wafers!

(For a more adult version of this dessert: try this:

Bananarama Wafer Pudding


  • 2 cups fat-free milk
  • 1 small (4-serving) package sugar-free fat-free instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 24 reduced-fat vanilla round wafer cookies (recommended: Reduced Fat Nilla)
  • 2 medium bananas, sliced
  • Fat-free whipped topping (Lisa says this is optional, but I think NOT! Go for the whip cream)
Combine milk with pudding mix in a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer or a whisk for 2 minutes, or until thoroughly blended. Set aside.In a 9-inch square baking pan, arrange a layer of wafers, flat sides down, and then top with a layer of banana slices. Continue alternating layers until all of the wafers and banana slices are in the dish.


Top the dish with the pudding and let it seep down in between the wafer and banana layers. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours. If desired, add whipped topping before serving.
