Last week I got to have a super fun “is this my life” experience: I got invited to a premiere of the new movie Rough Night. The PR agency was hosting a dinner and movie showing close by and somehow I got on the list. I get tons of press email every day and most of it goes in the delete bin, but this one I responded to promptly with a YES!

If you haven’t heard about the movie, it’s a cross between The Hangover, Bridesmaids, and Very Bad Things. Basically it’s a dark comedy about a bachelorette party; it’s very raunchy with lots of bad words and references. In other words, it was hilarious. Before the movie we had drinks and appetizers at a local restaurant (can I tell you that fried ravioli is the best thing ever?) and I got to meet one of my favorite radio personalities from a local morning radio show (for you Nor Cal people: Katie from the Wake-Up Call is just as hilarious in person as she is on the radio!)

Dinner was great, the movie was funny, but the best part about the evening? I was allowed to bring a couple of guests. Since it was definitely a “Girls Only” party (evidenced by the specially adorned headbands and straws…think bachelorette party…) I invited two of my close non-blogger friends. As a blogger, I often get to do cool things, like go on press trips or to new restaurants. So while the specialness of the evening wasn’t lost on me, it wasn’t something new. Being able to bring a friend that isn’t used to free stuff and being treated like a VIP was super cool.

It’s kind of how I imagine celebrities feel when they bring their mom to the Emmy’s…divided by a trillion because nothing I do is anywhere near celebrity status, ha!

The day that I went to the premiere, I’d spent the day in the kitchen baking and cooking up a storm. I hired an assistant to help me crank out recipes and videos once a week (our record is 7 new recipes + photos + videos…in one day). Needless to say, I was exhausted when I left the house, and after two wines and a tequila shot that Katie bought for the table, I was even more tired when I got home.

Instead of going to bed like I should have, I did what Dorothy normally does: drank more wine, watched RHOA, and ate way too much Banana Pudding Dream Dessert.

It was the perfect night, don’t you think?

No Bake Banana Pudding Dream Dessert - this easy dessert lasagna recipe is made with BANANA pudding and a golden oreo crust.

No Bake Banana Pudding Dream Dessert is the dessert known by many names: No Bake Dessert, Lush Dessert, Dessert Lasagna, Dream Dessert. Really, I never know what to call it. Basically, it’s layers of fabulousness on top of a crust. And it’s no-bake, which means it’s the best dessert in the entire world. I’ve made pumpkin and mocha, mint and coconut, strawberry and lemon before, and now I can add BANANA to that list.

Enter: No Bake Banana Pudding Dream Dessert, aka Banana Lush or Banana Pudding Lasagna. And guess what else? It has a GOLDEN OREO CRUST.

(Bananas and Golden Oreos should be married. In fact, why is there not a banana pudding Oreo yet???)

Let’s break down this dessert:

Layer 1: Golden Oreo Crust, easy, no-bake, butter and Oreos. YUM

Layer 2: No Bake Cheesecake with cream cheese, sugar, and some whipped topping (Yes, you can use whipped cream).

Layer 3: Banana Pudding. Good old banana pudding from a box; can’t replicate that fabulousness!

Layer 4: More whipped topping and more cookie crumbs.

Layer 5: MY MOUTH.

  1. This looks amazing! Nobake, lush, dream…yep all of the above, and whatever you call it, it looks fabulous!

    Seven. In one day. OMG. That is…not even human! I couldn’t even do 7 photo shoots let alone video shoots. You are superwoman! And I’m glad the premiere was fun with you and your gf’s!

  2. Wow, this sounds and looks absolutely….dreamy! Wish I had half of a pan of it now.

  3. I am a diabetic and have to count carbs. Any idea how many carbs the banana dessert has.

  4. Yes please! This looks so delicious! I still haven’t made up my mind about whether I want to see Rough Night, though. I love the cast and I love the Hangover and Bridesmaids, but it just looked a little too much like Very Bad Things which was just a little bit too dark for me! I’ll have to wait and see. 😬

  5. This looks amazing. Going to try for our family reunion. Thank you for the recipe.

  6. Banana meets lasagna meets dessert. Can’t get much better! Such a pretty dessert too.

  7. How do I get my pudding to thicken, seems like I’ve been whisking for ever. Help

  8. Everything looks scrumptious. Great pictures and easy receptors.

  9. I have a question, do you scrape the filling out of the oreos?

    • No. The cookies end up more like little nuggets than crumbs, but the recipe works well and tastes great.

  10. Do you scrape out the filling from the oreos, or do you leave it in when you crush them? I would think you would scrape it out.

  11. If I double it will be it fit good in a 9×13 pan??

  12. Are the nutritional facts available for this recipe?

  13. I have the mini golden oreos, how many should i use for this recipe.

  14. Dorothy, I am wondering the same question as Dan. Is the Banana Pudding “Instant or Cooked”??? Can’t wait to make this.

  15. Have made this 2 times in the past 3 weeks, family LOVED it and it was so easy to make. Only thing I changed was used a pre-made graham cracker crust. Will be making it again for Labor Day weekend but will double for a 9 x 13 pan.

  16. Love this recipe ! So easy to make and entire family loves!!

  17. Good luck finding instant banana cream pudding.
    We are going to try vanilla pudding.

  18. This is a great receipe for banana lovers. So good and easy to make. Thumbs up!

  19. So professional in appearance, easy, deliciously rich and fun to make..made one with coconut pudding and one with pistachio as well as the banana cream. This recipe is a keeper

  20. Found your banana cream cheese recipe and had to try it;   Question, why not all the milk the box calls for?  It would give it more height and flavor…… I’m tempted to use two boxes and double the whipped cream…..  thoughts?
    Hugs, Mickey 

  21. I made this last night, and it was so good and easy. The golden oreos really added a nice touch. I also took the suggested option, and added bananas in between the cream cheese and pudding layers and I think it added a different texture. I also appreciated that it didn’t take hours and hours of refrigeration to set. I’m currently savoring the leftovers.

  22. Can I try coconut cream pudding instead

  23. Scrape cream from between Oreos or not????

  24. You cant stop eating it

  25. Can this be frozen
