Banana Pudding Desserts are perfect any time of the year. This dessert recipe is so good for bringing to family gatherings, church parties, or just dinner with the fam. Everyone loves banana pudding, and when it is mixed with the crunchy Golden Oreo crust it becomes a unique treat.

I love using pudding in desserts like this Snickers Salad, layered Chocolate Eclair Cake, and Coconut Banana Bread. Each of these treats is so flavorful and delicious, pudding just adds something special to recipes that make us come back to them again and again.

You are going to love this recipe because it is easy to make, has layers of sweet flavor, and is always a crowd-pleaser.

Recipe Ingredients

There are just a few ingredients you will need to pick up to make a No Bake Banana Cream Pie dessert.

  • Golden Oreos: we are using the whole cookie in this recipe, filling and all. Other cookies that work in this recipe are, shortbread cookies, graham crackers or Biscoff cookies.
  • Butter: used to bind the crust together on the bottom of the pan
  • Cream Cheese: the cream cheese layer is irresistible in this dessert
  • Vanilla: pure vanilla is always best
  • Whipped Topping: premade whipped topping is sweet and fluffy and works perfectly in this banana dessert recipe
  • Powdered Sugar: used in this recipe to sweeten the cream cheese layer
  • Instant Banana Pudding: using instant pudding makes this recipe super quick and easy
  • Milk: any regular milk will work great in making the pudding

How to Make Banana Layered Dessert

Let’s walk through the simple steps to make Banana Layered Dessert.

  1. Prepare the Crust: make the Golden Oreo crust layer by placing the cookies into a food processor, process them until they are sand-like. Add in the butter and mix again until well combined. Press the crust into the bottom of an 8 x 8 inch pan, then cool in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes.

Quick Tip

If you don’t own a food processor, place the cookies into a large zip-top bag and smash up the cookies with a rolling pin.

  1. Make the Pudding: mix the cold milk and instant banana pudding mix in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes. Set in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. Make the Cream Cheese Layer: in a separate mixing bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar, until well combined. Use a spatula to fold in the whipped topping. Then spread the cream cheese layer over the top of the cookie crust.
  3. Layer: add a layer of fresh-cut bananas over the cream cheese layer. Over the bananas, spread the banana pudding, then top with a layer of whipped topping.
  4. Chill: cover the banana dessert with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  5. Enjoy: just before serving, add additional sliced bananas, and broken cookies on top of the dessert if desired.

Can this Banana Dessert Recipe be Made Ahead?

Banana pudding dessert can be made a few hours in advance of when you will be serving it. This layered dessert recipe is best eaten on the same day because the crust can get soggy the longer it sits.

That being said, we have definitely been found eating this recipe the next day, it still has all the delicious flavors, just a softer crust.
