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!

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)
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.
