I keep coming back to this one also. I originally saw it in one of my "Taste of Home" cookbooks and was so glad to see it here at Recipezaar so I don't have to hunt through all those cookbooks. All of my children like this one, even the kids that don't really care for bananas.

I have made this dessert, like it b/c it does not have cream cheese in it. It is pretty and I do not have any grandkids around (yet, but soon) and I would think kids would love the jello part. How can you go wrong-red jello, bananas, and pudding? Also it is fairly healthy for a dessert:) It is a perfect summer dessert.
