Recipe Thursday - Banana Split Dessert

Banana Split Dessert

2 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers
1 stick melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 softened 8oz. package of cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
3 bananas - sliced
1 can of crushed pineapple - drained
2 - 4 serving banana or vanilla instant pudding

Crush graham crackers to make 21/2 cups.  Mix with melted butter and sugar.  Press into 9X13 pan and freeze for 10 minutes or longer.  (the longer you freeze it the easier it is to spread the cream cheese filling) 
 Mix cream cheese and powdered sugar until creamy.  Spread over graham cracker crust.  Next spread the pineapple over evenly.  Cover with sliced bananas.  Mix pudding with 2 cups milk.  Add cool whip to pudding (1 cup).  Put on top of banana layer.  Cover and refrigerate until set (10-15 minutes).  Top with 1 1/2 cups cool whip. 
You can top you dessert with whatever topping you wish.  I like to put nuts (walnuts), cherries or strawberries.  Once you place your toppings, drizzle chocolate right before serving. 

I have made this a few times and it is always a huge hit!  The only sad part about making this dessert is you rarely come home with any left.  : )
Pin It!


  1. I, too, have made this dessert many times and always a hit! This recipe is in an old Avon recipe book that I have had for many years.

  2. Another yummy looking one!! Do you have your posts set up so that your "pin it" button always appears, or do you add it to the HTML each time? Just curious!!
