A new twist to Banana Pudding. My family begs for it.
Cook pudding, low heat to prevent scorching, as directed on package. Meanwhile, layer "Nilla" vanilla wafers in bottom of large bowl. Then slice two of the bananas and put on top of wafers. Next cut up 3 slices of pineapple and put on top of bananas. Make another layer of wafers, sliced bananas, and cut up pineapple. Place wafers in a circle around the top of the mixture. Pour the pudding over the mixture slowly so it will seep to the bottom. I sometimes shake the bowl gently so the pudding will go to the bottom. Leave out on counter for approx. 30 minutes so pudding will soak into the wafers. Then refrigerate. Best if made night before using. Great for church socials.

Line the bottom of a large bowl or dish with whole vanilla wafers. Crumble a few wafers and set aside. Lay a layer of banana slices over the layer of wafers. Pour enough pudding over this to create a layer of pudding over top of the wafer and banana layers. Repeat this process until the bowl or dish is filled. Sprinkle the crumbled wafers over top.
Chill at least two hours before serving.

My mom makes it this way:

1 container whipped cream
It is really rich and is always a hit!

This is a great way to use your over-ripe bananas other than banana bread, and a healthy way to boot. So simple!
Put banana in food processor with the tablespoon of cocoa. You have a fast pudding. Use a frozen banana and it is like ice cream. Add nuts and it is Rocky Road.
