5 Minute Trifle- Like Dessert

This is a great quick dessert, that can serve as few as one or as many as 12.
I made this to serve about 8 people. It really does take about 5-10 minutes.
It is also tasty for summer or spring. I call it a "fake trifle" because it does not contain alcohol, custard, sponge cake, or some of the other things a true trifle has, but it has the same look and similar taste as a trifle.
Here is the low-down:
NOTE: the amount you need will vary depending on how many people you are serving. I made one for about 8-12 people, and used 2 of everything (2 boxes, 2 containers, etc. I did use 1 1/2 boxes of the wafers though, and about 6 bananas.)
5-Minute Trifle-Like Dessert
You need:
vanilla wafers
cut up bananas
cut up strawberries
cool whip
pudding (make ahead of time)
Start with the wafers.
Next layer the pudding, then the bananas, cool whip, strawberries, and wafers again. Repeat as desired until the bowl you are using is full. End with cool whip. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Okay, so how weird is this? I'm not sure who you are but I know I follow you on pinterest. Anyway, I noticed today your name is Sharla (Sharlala is really cute, I want to steal that now.) And then I went to your pinterest page and saw that you teach preschool (I taught preschool from home for years), have four boys (I have four boys) and seem to be LDS. So we are like practically twins! There aren't many Sharla's out there. So hello to the twin I never knew I had!
