No Bake Banana Cheesecake Pudding

Posted on Posted in Cheesecakes, Desserts, Recipes

If you love Banana Pudding and Cheesecake, I am going to rock your world!  Today, I make both of these desserts collide, bringing you a Banana Cheesecake Pudding that is seriously addictive and easy!

One of the things I love about this recipe, aside from the taste, is that there is no baking required!  It does need a few hours of chill time but other than that, it is a straightforward recipe that only requires a few key ingredients.

I have made this several times over the past couple of months and I always forget to take photos.  Or, I get bad ones due to the horrible lighting.  Today, I made it early in the day which allowed me to get a few shots in before sunset.

About the Ingredients

For this recipe, I used one small package of the Minion’s Instant Banana Pudding as well as a small Cheesecake Instant Pudding mix.  Note:  If you want to make a basic Banana Pudding, replace the cheesecake instant pudding mix with a box of vanilla instant pudding in the same small size and keep everything else the same. 

The Nilla Wafers I prefer to use are the mini ones.  I purchased an 11 ounce box but didn’t use it all.  I only used 8-10 ounces because someone complained of it being too “bread-y”!  Everyone thought it was great, except for that one individual child of mine that shall remain nameless and disowned due to this complaining spirit! 😉

Banana Cheesecake Pudding

After peeling the bananas, slice them about 1/4 -1/2 inch wide.  I used 6 bananas because they were small but feel free to use however many you like. Or use less if you prefer.

There was no need to use a mixer for this recipe.  It comes together quite quickly and easy so all you really need is a whisk and a bowl to whip things up.  This recipe yields a generous serving for about 10 people, give or take a few.

Recipe fits perfectly into a medium sized casserole dish.  Since I have a crazy addiction to single serving treats, I decided to make a couple cups of this Banana Cheesecake Pudding.  They’re perfect little single servings, which means you don’t have to share with anyone!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine milk, both pudding powders and condensed milk. Whisk until well blended and let sit for 5 minutes to set up and thicken.
  2. While the pudding mix is setting up, peel and slice the bananas and measure out the Nilla Wafers.
  3. Add the Cool Whip to the pudding mix and whisk to incorporate well.
  4. Line a deep baking dish with a layer of the wafers. Add a single layer of banana slices on top of the wafers. Spoon a third of the pudding mix over the bananas and smooth over using the back of a spoon. Repeat the process two more times, ending with the top layer of pudding mix. Crush a few wafer cookies and sprinkle over the top.
  5. Refrigerate for a minimum of four hours or overnight. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

Notes:

Pudding:  DO NOT make the pudding according to the directions on the packages.  You will need to use the powder in the bags and not actually make the pudding.

Milk:  Use whole milk as it gives the pudding a richer, creamier taste.

Wafers:  I prefer to use mini wafers not only because I'm still in kid mode (even though my kids are "adults") but also because they're easier to cram into my big mouth, lol, but use whichever you prefer.

To make the Mini cups:  Sprinkle broken wafers on the bottom of the cup and add 2-3 banana slices.  Top with a layer of pudding.  Line 3 whole wafers (if using the mini) along the side of the cup and sprinkle more broken wafers over the pudding.  Add more banana slices and top with more pudding.  Repeat once more.  Add 2 mini wafers and a little of the crushed wafers to the top.
