Once the homemade pudding has thickened, fold in the cool whip. You want to fold the cool whip in to keep your mixture thick.

Next add in your bananas and crushed vanilla wafers by folding them in.

Now it’s time to layer your pudding cups. In the bottom of your jars, place a layer of cookies, followed by a layer of sliced bananas. 

Top the layer of bananas with a few spoonfuls of the pudding mixture and repeat the layers. 

Finish your mason jars with a layer of your whipped cream and garnish with crushed vanilla wafers and a few banana slices.

The best fresh bananas for this recipe are firm, ripe and sweet. They will have a better texture after they’ve ripened even more in the refrigerator!
