this layered no bake dessert is perfect for summer parties and gatherings. i got the recipe from kraft a couple years ago and we use it every year now, it’s a family favorite.
I do make a couple of changes, I use Real Whipped cream, rather than cool whip (which is mostly chemicals, I also add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the pudding mixture.
9 graham crackers, crushed (about 1-1/2 cups)
1/2 cup sugar, divided
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese, softened (for a lower cal version you can use neufchatel cheese instead)
1 can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple in juice, drained
6 bananas, divided
(3.4 oz. each) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
2 cups cold milk
2 cups thawed cool whip whipped topping, divided
1 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans)
Mix graham crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar and butter; press onto bottom of 13×9-inch pan. Freeze 10 min.
Beat cream cheese and remaining sugar with mixer until blended. Spread carefully over crust; top with pineapple.
Slice 4 bananas; arrange over pineapple.
Beat pudding mixes and milk with whisk 2 min. Stir in 1 cup cool whip; spread over banana layer in pan. top with remaining cool whip.
refrigerate 5 hours. Slice remaining bananas just before serving; arrange over dessert. Top with nuts.
