"As far back as I can remember this is Banana Pudding that my Mom always made for every Family get together. And a few times it was even made for birthdays.This recipe contains instant pudding but if you want to take the time to make your own pudding feel free to do so.Also,if you would like to add walnuts and/or toasted coconut go right ahead and let me know in your review how it turned out. But try it the way it was written the first time and see if you want to use the additions.Please plan ahead this needs several hours to chill.Chill time is " Cook Time " " Keep Smiling :)"
