I have been dreaming up this no bake triple layer banana pudding cheesecake pie (how’s that for a long title πŸ™‚ ) for awhile now. Ever since I made this black forest cheesecake pie and this no bake triple layer lemon pudding pie I’ve been thinking of all the combinations you could do with them.

Recently we were in South Carolina on a beach vacation and we went to Paula Deen’s new Family Kitchen restaurant. And let me tell you that it was insanely delicious food. Like really really really good that I am *possibly* contemplating a trip down there just for that restaurant. Well maybe not that but seriously the food is good!

Everything is served family style, except for the dessert, which was a really good thing because I ordered the banana pudding and there was no way I was going to be sharing πŸ™‚Β

One of my top 5 favorite desserts is banana pudding but it’s also the one thing that I am picky about. I don’t like the brown bananas in it. It’s a texture and aesthetic thing for me. I want my food to look pretty. I don’t want brown, soggy bananas at the bottom of this ultra amazing banana pudding dessert.Β 

And that folks, is how this cheesecake pie was born. I wanted something that was a pie, tasted just like banana pudding, did not have brown bananas in it, and was so simple and easy to make.Β

It’s so light and fluffy and full of banana pudding flavor. I would highly suggest topping each piece with some sliced bananas and crushed Nilla Wafers.Β 

The best part about this cheesecake pie is that it sets up beautifully and cuts perfectly. It’s one of those desserts that you can count on to impress and turn out each time.

Mix up a simple mixture of cream cheese, sugar, and some Cool Whip. In another bowl you will mix 2 boxes of banana cream instant pudding mix and then you start making your 3 layers. Please follow the recipe and use the half & half milk to make the pudding. I promise you the recipe will come out lots better if you use it.

I know some may be tempted to use fat-free milk to make this “healthier” or maybe even use sugar-free instant pudding mix, but the texture will suffer. So, use at your own risk πŸ™‚

You can always tell when I’m really excited about a recipe because there will be like a million pictures. Thanks for sticking with me through all of them. Do yourself a favor and make this! Make it for a weekend dessert, weeknight dessert, or at the very least add it to your Thanksgiving dessert menu. Because every Thanksgiving table needs a banana pudding pie, right? Yes! πŸ™‚Β

Ingredients

  • 1 ready-to-use Shortbread or Graham Cracker crust
  • 2 small boxes (3.4 oz) Banana Pudding Instant pudding mix
  • 2 cups Half & Half
  • 1 bar (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tub (8 oz) Cool Whip
  • Nilla Wafers & sliced bananas, for garnish

Instructions

  • In a bowl, combine the dry pudding mix powder with the half & half. Stir with a wire whisk until completely combined and creamy. Evenly spread 1 1/2 cups of this mixture into the prepare pie crust (this is the 1st layer). Set aside the remaining.
  • In a separate bowl, combine cream cheese and sugar and beat with a handheld blender until combined. Fold in the Cool Whip and stir, using a spatula, until completely combined. Add half of this mixture to the remaining banana pudding mix. Stir together until combined and add to the pie crust (as the 2nd layer).
  • Spread the remaining cream cheese mixture on top (for the 3rd layer). Cover with the enclosed lid and let refrigerate for at least 4-6 hours. I prefer to refrigerate overnight.
  • Slice and garnish each piece with some crushed Nilla Wafers and sliced bananas.

Notes

This recipe does make a tall pie. You will be able to get it all in the pie crust but if you prefer a shorter, more even (with the top of the pie crust) pie, then buy 2 pie crusts and divide the mixture between the two. Do not double the other ingredients.

      October 25, 2017 at 4:18 pm Really? Exaggerate much? There were 8 pictures before the recipe. How exhausting! Have people become so lazy that they cannot scroll for an extra 4 seconds to receive a FREE recipe that someone else did all of the work for?

    October 19, 2017 at 8:31 pm I'm wondering whether the pie is freezable?

      October 23, 2017 at 5:06 pm I've never frozen it but I am guessing it is not freezable. With all the cream cheese and Cool whip, I am pretty sure it would end up separating once it thawed. But I am not positive on that, as I've never tried it.

      November 23, 2017 at 3:06 pm When you buy a store bought crust there is a plastic lid in the crust (it usually has the brand sticker on it). That is the lid I'm referring to ☺️.

    November 23, 2017 at 11:17 am Thank you for sharing this impressive bananlicious recipe! It will be on our Thanksgiving table today. I took the liberty of making a couple of tweaks. I made a Nilla wafer pie crust instead of buying a graham one, and I cheated and used a mixer instead of a whisk. I know it’s a no-no with Cool Whip, but it came out silky smooth and the pie is still a mile high.

    December 19, 2017 at 5:15 pm I normally don't comment on recipes that I try but I had to for this one. OMG! This was the BEST banana pie recipe that I have ever made! It was so good that my 93 year old grandma, who hates bananas, ate half of the pie. Delicious!!!!!!

    March 16, 2018 at 4:06 pm Could you use a springform pan - or does it not get that high and fluffy? Thank you.

      March 21, 2018 at 10:14 pm It's no bake so it would not get any higher than when it's spread into the crust. You could use a springform pan but I don't think it would ne necessary as you could buy the graham cracker crust and just put it inside the crust. If you want to use the springform then you'd have to make your own crust and then fill it with the banana cream pie. Let it refrigerate so it comes together and then serve and cut. I hope that helps :)

      March 21, 2018 at 10:08 pm I hope it's a hit! I am kind of the same way as I don't like bananas in my banana cream pie (sounds crazy, right hahah :) ) which is why this is one of my favorite desserts.
