Easy Banana Split Cheesecake is the perfect summer dessert. Layers of graham cracker, cheesecake, pineapple, bananas, strawberries and all the sundae toppings!


  • 2½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 packages (8 ounce each) cream cheese, softened
  • 12 ounce can crushed pineapple, well drained
  • 3 medium bananas, sliced
  • 1 pint strawberries, sliced
  • 12 ounce cool whip, thawed
  • maraschino cherries
  • ¼ cup chocolate syrup
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup pecan halves


  1. Start by making your graham cracker crumb crust. You could purchase them already made, but I love the flavor of a homemade crust!
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. In a food processor, pulse graham crackers until fine crumbs. Add melted butter and mix with a fork.
  4. Press into the bottom of two 9-inch pie plates.
  5. Bake crust for about 10 minutes. Remove and cool completely.
  6. In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese with powdered sugar until smooth. Spread cream cheese mixture over cooled crusts.
  7. Layer with crushed pineapple, bananas, and sliced strawberries.
  8. Spread Cool Whip (or homemade whipped cream) over the top. Chill in refrigerator for 4 hours, or overnight.
  9. Decorate with chocolate chips, pecans, and cherries.


  • Freeze: After assembling the cheesecake, up to the point of adding Cool Whip, wrap the top of the cheesecake in plastic wrap. Then completely wrap cheesecake in aluminum foil. Freeze cheesecake for up to one month for best flavor. Thaw in refrigerator overnight before serving. Top with hot fudge, nuts, and cherry right before serving.
  • Make individual size servings by using mini pie plates, quiche tins, or parfait jars. Just put the graham cracker crumbs in the bottom of the jars loosely.
