Nilla Pudding Bites

1 box prepared vanilla or banana pudding
Vanilla wafers
sliced bananas

Place some vanilla wafers with flat side up on a plate.  Top with a spoonful of pudding, add a sliced banana, then top with another vanilla wafer, flat side down. 
Make as many as you can eat, they're bite size and great for everyone to enjoy!

**You could also substitute the pudding for strawberry and add strawberry slices. 
**Make Nutella bites by adding some Nutella instead of pudding and then a banana or strawberry and top with another wafer.
