  • 1 3.4 ounce package instant vanilla pudding mix (or 2 cups prepared vanilla pudding)
  • 2 cups 2% or whole milk
  • 12 1-ounce packs or bags mini vanilla wafer cookies
  • 3 to 4 small to medium ripe bananas
  • Reddi Wip or Cool Whip or sweetened whipped cream


  • Prepare the vanilla pudding according to package directions using the milk. Cover and let chill 15 minutes to set up.
  • Cut the cookie bags open on the side with a pair of scissors.
  • Slice the bananas and evenly distribute bananas on top of cookies.
  • Spoon about 2 1/2 tablespoons pudding on top of the bananas. For softer cookies, spoon pudding directly on cookies first.
  • Squirt Reddi Wip or dollop Cool Whip on top of pudding.
  • Arrange the bags of Walking Banana Pudding in a plastic container, baking pan or baking sheet, overlapping them so they are slightly propped up and will not spill out. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. The longer they chill, the softer the cookies will be.


Tip: To prevent the banana slices from turning brown, lightly brush the slices with lemon juice or pineapple.
Where to buy multi packs of mini vanilla wafers: I watch for them to go on sale at Publix but they can also be found at Walmart, Sams Wholesale and Aldi.
