This was GRRREAT! My husband loved it I even thought it was pretty good. I loved the crust it was Awesome! I did make a few small adjustment I used 2 regular sized boxes of bananna creme pudding and 1 box of french vanilla. I also used light whipped topping and reduced fat milk. Next time I''d like to try it with sugar free pudding to cut some of the calories . I also wanna try it with chocolate pudding.


This was a wonderful, portable desert. I forgot to buy cool whip, so I had to substitute with a pint of heavy cream. I whipped it up with 2 Tablespoons of powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of lemon extract. I also used 2 regular boxes banana and 1 french vanilla as suggested in one of the other reviews. It looked, smelled and tasted great.


This is great! I made it for a potluck, and made one small change- I layered the crust mixture/pudding/bananas parfait style in a great big glass bowl- beautiful, and super good!
