  1. Add the milk beverage, cornstarch, sugar, and salt to your blender and puree until smooth, about 30 seconds.
  2. Pour the mixture into a saucepan, and bring to a bubble over medium-low to medium heat, while whisking often. Once bubbling, whisk continuously as it cooks and thickens to a slightly thin pudding consistency, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and whisk in the vanilla, to taste (go ahead, taste it!).
  4. Let cool. Cover and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. You may need to whisk it or even blend it if it thickens a little too much when time to serve.
  5. Horizontally slice the bananas into thin disks.
  6. Sprinkle about ⅔ of the crushed cookies in 4 parfait glasses (I use martini glasses!). Top with a layer of the banana slices. Top with all of the vanilla pudding. Top with another layer or two of the banana slices. Dollop or pipe on some whip topping and sprinkle with the remaining crushed cookies.
*If you will be chilling the pudding, and prefer it less thick, then try just 3 tablespoons of cornstarch.
