  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Whisk
  • spatula
  • Knife
  • Cutting Board


  • 1 (9 inch) pre-made graham cracker pie crust
  • 3 bananas sliced
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) box Jello vanilla instant pudding (could also use banana cream pudding)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 25 vanilla wafer cookies
  • 8 ounces Cool Whip frozen whipped topping


  • In a large bowl, mix together vanilla pudding mix with milk. Set in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes until it sets up.
  • Once your pudding has set, grab your pie crust and begin assembling your pie.
  • Line the bottom of the pie crust with banana slices, then spread half of the pudding mixture on top. Place a layer of vanilla wafers on top of pudding, then add the rest of the pudding on top of the cookies. Spread the remaining banana slices on the pudding, then top with Cool Whip.
  • Place pie in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving to let it set up.


  • Allow the pie 2 hours before serving to give the flavors time to come together and for the wafer to get their ideal consistency for the pie.
