There are two methods to make a Banana Pudding a Long way that takes a Lot of time the second method easier and shorter. First version shown is the easy way. The second way I will simply explain differences.

1 Large package Instant Vanilla Pudding (prepare according to package directions)

1 Bunch of slightly over ripe bananas*
1 Container of Cool-Whip
*(The skin of Bananas will begin to have dark spots. Most stores have red tape bananas, which would be perfect. Don’t use any that are bruised. 4-6 depending upon size.)
In a Rectangular shaped dish for example a 9”x 12” or smaller Pyrex dish, line bottom and sides with Wafers, sides with banana slices. Next pour some of the pudding. Then add a layer of Bananas. Pour some more of pudding.
Add another layer Bananas. Then pour rest of pudding. Top with Cool whip.
Put in Refrigerator until serving time
