No Bake Banana Pudding Dessert

Who’s ready for easy banana desserts? This no-bake banana pudding is one of my favorites to make for any occasion – it’s creamy, delicious and so easy to put together!  Everyone loves banana dessert recipes but this one? It’s bananas, pudding, no bake cheesecake, and Golden Oreos married together. I think that says enough. 

Personally, I love making this dessert lasagna for the hot summer months – it’s the perfect potluck dessert. You don’t have to deal with a hot oven or the stress of watching your dessert not burn. A no-bake recipe just requires you to layer up the goodies and chill in the fridge. 

Ingredients Needed

  • Banana slices: this makes the banana pudding even better. Freshly slice some bananas and layer them onto the pudding. 
  • Cookies: I’m using Golden Oreos crushed but you can use your favorite cookie. I’m too lazy to remove the cream from the Oreos so I just use the whole cookie. I’ve also tried this with vanilla wafer cookies and it’s so delicious. 
  • Butter: we’ll use melted butter to make the cookie crust. This will get the crushed cookies to stick together in it’s form 
  • Cream cheese: I prefer to have my cream cheese at room temperature since it’s easier for mixing but cold is just fine
  • Whipped topping: I used cool whip but you can substitute freshly whipped cream.
  • Pudding mix: instant banana cream pudding mix or use vanilla pudding. Either way, it turns out incredible once layered up altogether.

How to make banana pudding dessert

  1. Mix the crushed Golden Oreos and butter. Press into the bottom of a square pan. You can use any kind of pan you have for this recipe. Chill for 10 minutes. 
  2. Beat cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl until smooth. Stir in a cup of the whipped topping until combined, then spread over the crust in the pan.
  3. Add the pudding mix to a large bowl and whisk in cups cold milk until stiff peaks form. Once the pudding mixture has set, spread it over the cream cheese layer.
  4. Top with remaining whipped topping and some additional crushed Oreos for decoration.
  5. Chill for at least 2 hours before slicing and serving.
