Ingredients

For the Pudding:

  • 1 box (3.4 oz) Banana Cream Pudding mix
  • 1 ¾ cup milk (I used skim milk)

For the Crust:

  • 1 box (11 oz) Nilla Wafers cookies
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, melted

For the Cheesecake:

  • 2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
  • ½ 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

Instructions

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!
