Banana Split Dessert
This Banana Split Dessert is made with a sweet graham cracker crust and layers of all of your favorite banana split flavors in an easy no bake recipe. Perfectly creamy and delicious!
For the crust:
- 2 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs (about 2 ½ packets)
- ¾ cup salted butter melted
- ¼ cup light brown sugar
For the filling:
- 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
- 12 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1 cup crushed pineapples well drained
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 to 3 bananas sliced
- 4 cups whipped topping about an 8 ounce container
- chocolate syrup
- 1/3 cup pecans finely chopped
- 12 to 16 maraschino cherries
For the Crust
Prepare a 9x13 baking dish by lightly spraying it with cooking spray and then setting it aside.
Stir the graham cracker crumbs, melted salted butter and light brown sugar in a large bowl until combined.
Press mixture into the bottom of the baking dish to create a crust. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes while preparing the filling.
For the Filling
Combine cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl. Using a mixer, beat together for 1 to 2 minutes or until light and fluffy and no lumps remain.
Beat in the crushed pineapple and lemon juice.
Pour mixture over graham cracker crust and spread it evenly.
Add a layer of sliced bananas on top. Spread whipped topping over banana layer. Chill until ready to serve.
It is ideal to chill dessert for 1-2 hours before serving, but not completely necessary to enjoy this dish.
To substitute homemade whipped cream for the whipped topping:
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Chill the mixing bowl and whisk attachment in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes.
Pour heavy whipping cream into mixing bowl and beat on medium-high speed until the cream gets bubbly and starts to thicken.
Gradually add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Continue beating on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form.
- Use in place of the whipped topping in the recipe.
