It’s my birthday today, whoohoo!!! And this cheesecake is the perfect way to celebrate!! The recipe inspiration comes from my friend Julianne and her cookbook “No Bake Treats.”

I have a huge collection of cookbooks. Some that are definitely collecting dust, and some that have spills, splatters and bunny-eared pages because I love them so much. Today’s recipe comes from a cookbook that will be used often.

Why is this one a keeper? Because….

  1. It’s packed with delicious no bake recipes. Perfect for summer.
  2. It’s created by a blogger (Hi Julianne) I love and trust! I know her recipes will knock your socks off!
  3. The photos. Every recipe has a photo (I LOVE THAT) and they all look amazing. I’m curious which one you will try first!

I love “no bake” desserts. (you can see I have quite a few on the blog already!) Especially as we are in the heart of summer here in the midwest, desserts that don’t use the oven are essential. I still need a dessert for my birthday, so the timing of whipping up one of these “No Bake Treats” was perfect. And, since I love banana pudding desserts (AND CHEESECAKE) this one got my attention! I did change up the recipe slightly, just to make it a little easier (I used boxed pudding mix instead of her homemade pudding recipe….and I used Cool Whip instead of homemade whipped cream)….but feel free to purchase her book and make it the original way!!

Speaking of purchasing her cookbook, want a chance to win a copy, for FREE? I’ll be choosing two names at random to win a copy of her gorgeous book, so be sure to enter the giveaway widget located after the recipe below! The giveaway is only open for a week, so hurry up 🙂

No Bake Banana Cream Cheesecake

Yield: 10 servings

Prep Time: 20 minutes, plus 3 hour chill time

No oven needed with this beautiful, layered NO BAKE Banana Cream Cheesecake! You'll love the cookie crust with the creamy cheesecake, fresh bananas, banana pudding and whipped topping!

Ingredients:

For the Pudding:

  • 1 box (3.4 oz) Banana Cream Pudding mix
  • 1 3/4 cup milk (I used skim milk)

For the Crust:

  • 1 box (11 oz) Nilla Wafers cookies
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the Cheesecake:

  • 2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Topping:

  • 12 oz Cool Whip, thawed, divided
  • 3 large bananas, sliced
  • 6 Nilla Wafers, crushed, for garnish

Directions:

For the Pudding:

  1. Prepare pudding mixture first so that it has a few minutes to chill and thicken before assembling the cheesecake.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the pudding mix and milk until smooth. Refrigerate for 5 minutes, until ready to assemble.

For the Crust:

  1. Lightly grease the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan with baking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a food processor, grind the vanilla wafers (reserving about 6 of them for the garnish) until a fine crumb. Add in the melted butter and combine together with a fork.
  3. Pour crust mixture into bottom of springform pan and press firmly to create a thick crust! Set aside.

For the Cheesecake:

  1. Beat cream cheese with sugar for 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy. Add in whipping cream and vanilla and beat an additional 2-3 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  2. Pour cheesecake filling into prepared crust.

To assemble:

  1. Once you have poured your cheesecake filling onto your crust, add your sliced bananas to the top of the cheesecake.
  2. Get your pudding mixture out of the refrigerator and pour that over the sliced bananas.
  3. Top everything with 8 oz of the thawed Cool Whip.
  4. Refrigerate entire cake for at least 3 hours.
  5. When ready to serve, use your 6 reserved cookies and crush them. Sprinkle over the top of the Cool Whip.
  6. With your remaining 4 oz of Cool Whip, add it to a piping bag and add some festive swirls to the edges of your cheesecake. Serve and enjoy!
