Mama's aren't replaceable, neither are the treasured recipes they used to make and the precious recipes that accompany them. I found one of my Mama's recipes for Chocolate Eclair Cake the other day. A very easy, no bake cake. I new immediately I would make it, when I told the boys, they were very excited! I decided to use banana cream, instead of vanilla, and added bananas in the cake, it was a hit. Hope you enjoy making this recipe and making a new memory with, and for, your loved ones. <3 and hugs!

10 oz whipped topping, fat free
3 - 4 bananas, sliced thin

Fold in fat free whip topping until incorporated, Put halve of the pudding mixture on top of the graham crackers. Top with banana slices, pushing down into the pudding. Repeat layers ending with graham crackers.
