Easy Banana Pudding Parfaits

This recipe is taken from Food & Family magazine.

12 NILLA Wafers (or a similar wafer), divided
1/4 cup thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping
10 slices banana (about 1 small)
2 Vanilla pudding snacks (the ready made ones)

CRUSH 10 of the wafers to form coarse crumbs. Place one-fourth of the wafer crumbs in each of two parfait glasses or dessert dishes; top each with 1 Tbsp. of the whipped topping, 2 banana slices and one-half of the contents of 1 pudding snack cup. Repeat layers of crumbs, banana slices and pudding snack; cover.
REFRIGERATE at least 15 min. or up to 4 hours. Meanwhile, wrap reserved banana slices tightly in plastic wrap; refrigerate until ready to use.
TOP each parfait with 1 Tbsp. of the remaining whipped topping, 1 of the remaining wafers and remaining banana slices just before serving.

How to Prevent the Banana Slices from Turning Brown
Toss banana slices with small amount of lemon juice.

Everyone who's tried this dessert LOVED it, and it looks pretty too! I used the clear disposable plastic cups! :)
