Reminiscent of Banana Cream Pie, but easier! This No-Bake Banana Cream Lush uses Graham crackers instead of a crust, and it’s no-bake. It’s a must the next time you have a crowd over!
Bananas – yay or nay?
We’re indifferent over here. UNLESS they’re in a dessert, of course. And certainly a lush like this one. Or my One-Bowl Banana Muffins (which are awe.some. – make them. Really.)
This dessert reminds me so much of Banana Creme Pie (which I LOVE), but without the work of making a pie crust (which I also love.) BUT, I’m also
The pudding layer has that awesome vanilla flavor, with the texture of marshmallow fluff. It pairs perfectly with sweet ripe bananas and honey Graham crackers.
I served it for the 4th of July and as I was making it, I desperately wanted to not like it, because hello massive calories (when you devour more than one serving *cough*)
But you guys. GAH. It’s so good. SO SO GOOD. Just like all lush desserts!
Bonus with any lush, it’s no-bake, making it perfect for summer. It’s a must the next time you have a crowd over!
