Happy New Year! What better way to start the new year by not going on a diet right? This banana pudding is delicious and somewhat healthy. It has bananas and fat-free and low-fat ingredients...haha. Banana pudding is so much easier to make than I thought it would be. Instead of the usual vanilla wafers, I used maria cookies. I had a post about maria nutella cookies before and I just love these cookies. This would be a great dessert to share with friends and family at your next party. Enjoy!
1 package of maria cookies
3 to 4 bananas, sliced
1 package (5 ounce) of instant vanilla pudding
3 cups cold milk (I used low-fat.)
1 container frozen whipped topping, thawed (I used fat-free.)
In a bowl, whisk together milk and instant vanilla pudding until set.
Stir in whipped topping to combine with pudding.
Layer maria cookies in a loaf pan or 8x8 inch baking dish in a single layer.
Top with a single layer of sliced bananas.
Top with 1/3 of the pudding mixture.
Next, add another layer of maria cookies, top with sliced bananas and 1/3 of the pudding mixture.
Repeat until final layer are the maria cookies on top.
Serves 8 to 10.
