Some people like to layer bananas, cookies, and then pudding as layers. My preference is to use the cookies last so that they don’t get wet. I recommend making this the morning of the day it is to be served. This way the bananas don’t get too brown and the pudding gets nice and cold. I also like to garnish the whipped topping and toasted coconut just before it is to be served. Try using fresh strawberries instead of fresh blueberries for something different.
