Why do we call this a lasagna? It does sound cool, right? You won’t find any marinara or parmesan cheese in the recipe. The lasagna term means layered dessert.

This dessert has 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 be sad when it’s gone!




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

Pinch of salt

4 (8-oz.) blocks cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
4 c. heavy cream
2 tsp. pure vanilla 
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


  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.
