Ya know, I really should start paying closer attention to where I get my recipes from. The online recipes are easy cause I usually just email them to myself, but whenever I get something from outside the Internet, I never seem to remember where it came from. This I found in a magazine...I want to say Women's Day, or Family Circle...maybe Cooking Light. I don't know.
The first time I made this was a couple weeks ago when we had company over. They were a big hit, and were so easy to throw together. The recipe called for these to be more of a 'shooter', but they seemed too small to me. I'll admit, one of these (in a Ball canning jar) is a lot, so if you have glasses that are a little smaller than these, I say use them.
The cool thing about this recipe (besides being so easy), is how many ways you can change it. This is the banana version, but I think next time I'll try a chocolate one...I'm thinking crushed Oreo's on the bottom, chocolate pudding, maybe some grasshoppers, and whipped cream? Sounds good to me!

Crushed vanilla wafers
Ripe bananas; sliced
1. Crush vanilla wafers in a plastic bag and spoon about 1/3 cup into the bottom of a glass.
2. Pour vanilla pudding over top wafers (I found it easiest to put the pudding into a plastic bag, snip the corner and squeeze it in...gives you a bit more control and it's less messy).
3. Top pudding with sliced bananas, then refrigerate if not serving immediately.
4. Once ready to serve, top bananas with whipped cream (I use Cool Whip, so I do the plastic bag trick again for a neater appearance. Or you can use canned whipped cream).
