What is Oreo Lasagna?

Dessert lasagnas are such a fun and easy no bake dessert, perfect for warm weather. There are countless ways to make one, and this Oreo lasagna recipe combines chocolate cookies, pudding, and whipped cream for a crowd-pleasing dessert.

If you love cookies and cream, you will love this Oreo chocolate lasagna.

It gets its name because the ingredients are layered like lasagna. Oreo lasagna cake is also known as an Oreo lush dessert and Oreo icebox cake. You don’t have to turn on the oven or do a bunch of complicated steps – just mix up the pudding and layer it with cookies and whipped cream in a baking dish!

This is an Oreo lasagna without cream cheese, so it’s light and not so rich. Instead of cream cheese, I use vanilla pudding. Whatever you choose to call this Oreo lasagna dessert recipe, it’s one of my favorite desserts during the summer – I’ve lost count on how many dessert lasagna versions I’ve made.

Overhead shot of all four ingredients needed for Oreo Lasagna

Just 4 Ingredients Needed

  • Pudding Mix: Be sure to use Instant Pudding! I used vanilla pudding mix but you could also use chocolate or cheesecake flavor.
  • Nonfat milk: To make the pudding and for dipping the Oreos.
  • Oreos: Make sure to buy a family pack or party pack because you need quite a few cookies to make this recipe. You can use regular or Double Stuf or any flavored Oreo.
  • Whipped Topping: Cool Whip is the creamy goodness in the lasagna filling.

How to Make Oreo Lasagna

  1. Whisk the pudding mix and two cups of nonfat milk in a bowl until smooth. Let it sit for about five minutes so it can thicken.
  2. Pour the rest of the milk into a small bowl or liquid measuring cup. Dip cookies in the milk, one at a time, and then place them in a single layer in an 8×8” baking dish.
  3. Top the Oreos with half of the pudding and half of the whipped topping. Do a second layer of cookies, pudding, and topping.
  4. Crush the rest of the cookies in a bag with a rolling pin. Sprinkle the cookie crumbs over the top of the whipped topping.
  5. Cover the Oreo lush with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for at least four hours or, ideally, overnight.

Expert Tips

  • You can use any flavor of pudding mix, so have fun experimenting with changing up the flavor!
  • I don’t recommend using non-dairy milk for this recipe. The pudding won’t set up right, so stick with nonfat, 2%, or whole milk.
  • Make it a sugar-free dessert with sugar-free Oreos, pudding mix, and whipped topping.
  • Why dip the cookies in milk? They won’t soften with the pudding like other lasagna recipes that call for graham crackers, so dipping them in milk helps them get started softening.

How to store Oreo Lasagna Cake

This will keep in the refrigerator for three days; keep it covered with plastic.

Can I use other cookies?

This dessert is so customizable – use any kind of cookies you like – or any flavor of Oreos.

How long does Oreo Lasgna last?

This will keep 3 days in the refrigerator. It’s best to make this 24 hours ahead of time so the flavors can all soak together and the cookies can soften properly.

    1. I haven’t tried it – I worry about making pudding with nondairy milk, I’ve heard it doesn’t work properly.

    1. I have never made pudding mix with evaporated milk – googling said yes so let me know if it works!

    1. Yes you can – just use freshly whipped cream. It won’t last as long though – so eat within a day or so.
