    Looking at directions I was confused. You said to use 2 boxes of pudding and 2 cups of milk but you said to follow instructions on package. Doing that contradicts the amount of milk you’re supposed to use, since the directions on pudding package call for 2 cups of milk per package You also mention 3 cups of Cool Whip divided but only to add 2 cups into the mix

      Thanks for catching the milk mistake. It’s 4 cups milk and prepare as directed. You fold in 2 cups of Cool Whip and then use the remaining cup as the topping. The remaining one cup should yield approx 16 TBSP.

    While this looks yummy and is certainly a good points choice, you should really rename the recipe and remove the word “healthy”. Sugar free pudding, whipped topping and vanilla wafers are loaded with lots of “not healthy” ingredients. Not trying to dis your recipe, as I indulge in not so healthy stuff from time to time. Just is not healthy.

    10 LARGE BANANAS???? Really???? Holy cow, I’ve made banana puddings for 40 years, and even own my own from-scratch home baking business, and I have NEVER used that many, nor have I chopped them. Not getting a good feeling in general about this recipe. Moving on.

      Thanks for moving on. Obviously, this isn’t your kind of recipe since you already make your own. That many bananas because it’s a WW recipe so more fruit the better!

    What do you mean by “folding “?

      Folding is when you use a rubber spatula or spoon and gently fold or stir in. You don’t need a lot of beating or mixing. Thanks for checking.

    I just can’t get over how many people take the time to leave NEGATIVE FEEDBACK?! If it’s not for you or you think there are too many bananas, great. Spare the world (and your own psyche!) your negative energy and SIMPLY MOVE ON. I, for one, am grateful to bloggers like you, Michelle, who put great stuff out there in the webiverse for people like me to find! I just started back up with WW and live banana pudding. This will be a go-to!! Bless you….and ignore those haters. 🙄

      Happy Thanksgiving. I am making this too, but in a big bowl, not enough small glasses. I am thankful you took the time to comment.
