"I didn't use the diet stuff because I don't use aspertame unless I don't notice it and the diet jello has asertame in it. I used banana pudding an it ca out good. I'm not a banana pudding person, but everyone else loved it. I even ate some and it tasted really good. My twin grandson's had seconds or thirds. Hubby had more than that. :-)"

"I've been making this dessert for years. For a patriotic holiday I add blueberries and strawberries for a red, white and blue dessert. Also, I don't use Cool Whip - Yuk! I use real whipped cream."

"I made this using gingerbread cookies instead of vanilla wafers. I also mashed the bananas and mixed them into the pudding and topped them with coconut. It was delicious."
