Banana Pudding Lasagna

Why does this recipe have the word lasagna at the end? Don’t worry, you won’t see marinara sauce or parmesan cheese in the recipe. However, it has the lasagna term because this is a layered dessert.

This one features 4 layers, a delicious crust made from Nilla wafers, banana pudding layer, cheesecake layer, and it’s topped with a creamy layer of cool whip. You’ll devour every bit.

 

 

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE CRUST
3 c. finely crushed Nilla Wafers
1 stick of butter, melted 

Pinch of salt

FOR THE CHEESECAKE
4 (8-oz.) blocks cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
4 c. heavy cream
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 (3.4-oz.) package instant vanilla pudding mix
3 1/2 c. whole milk ( it’s fine, if you don’t have whole milk)
10 large ripe bananas, sliced
48 Nilla wafer, plus more, crushed, for garnish
 
 

DIRECTIONS

 
  1. Make crust: In a medium bowl, stir together Nilla wafers, butter, and salt. Press into the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish. Set aside.
  2. Make cheesecake filling: In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Beat in heavy cream and vanilla and until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together pudding mix and milk. Let pudding stand for 5 minutes until thickened. Fold pudding into cheesecake mixture.
  4. Pour half the filling into graham cracker crust. Add a layer of sliced bananas and Nilla Wafers, then pour remaining half of filling over top. Add another layer of sliced bananas and Nilla wafers. Refrigerate until cool and set, at least 2 hours and up to overnight covered.
  5. Top lasagna with cool whip, sprinkle with Nilla wafers and top with remaining banana slices. Slice and serve.
