Favorite Banana Pudding

1 package (6 serving size) instant vanilla flavored pudding mix
3 cup cold nonfat or low fat milk
2 1/2 cups frozen non-dairy whipped topping, thawed
55 to 60 chocolate or vanilla cookie wafers
4 firm large banans, peeled, sliced

Directions: Prepare pudding according to package directions, using 3 cups milk. Fold in 1 cup whipped topping. Reserve 16 chocolate wafers and one-half banana for garnish. Arrange one-half remaining wafers on bottom of eight dessert dishes. Top with one-half banana slices. Spread one-half pudding mixutre over banana slices. Repeat with one more layer. Cover, refrigerate 2 hours or until serving time. Garnish with remaining whipped topping, wafers and banana slices, if desired.

Notes: Instead of individual dessert dishes, pudding can be prepared in 2 qt. deep baking dish or bowl.
