In a small bowl, on medium speed of an electric mixer, beat together the sweetened condensed milk and water until well combined, about 1 minute.
Add the pudding mix and beat well, about 2 minutes more.
Refrigerate while preparing the whipping cream.
In a large chilled bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form, about 3-5 minutes.
Remove pudding mixture from refrigerator and gently fold the pudding mixture into the whipping cream until well blended and no streaks of pudding remain.
In a large glass bowl, arrange 1/3 of the nilla wafers to cover the bottom of the bowl, overlapping if necessary.
Next layer, 1/3 of the bananas and then 1/3 of the pudding mixture.
Repeat the layering twice more, garnishing with mini nilla wafers or wafer crumbs on the top layer of the pudding.
Refrigerate no longer than 8 hours before serving.
**Trying the twist idea: substitute the raspberries or blueberries for the bananas.
If using the chocolate syrup, drizzle chocolate syrup on top of the banana layers and then on top as a garnish!
