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!

- 16 whole sheets honey Graham crackers ,divided
- 5 small bananas ,sliced
- 2 cups whole milk
- 5 ounce (1 box) vanilla or banana instant pudding
- 8 ounce (1 package) cream cheese ,softened
- 14 ounce (1 can) sweetened condensed milk
- 12 ounce (1 container) Cool Whip ,thawed
Line the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish with 7 1/2 Graham crackers sheets, breaking them up to fit. Place banana slices on top of the cracker layer.
In a large bowl, vigorously whisk together the milk and pudding until combined, smooth, and thick.
In a separate bowl with a handheld mixer, beat together the cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk. Add in the Cool Whip and beat until just blended.
Blend the two mixtures together until well combined, then pour half of the mixture over the banana slices.
Repeat one more layer of the crackers and cream mixture.
In a small plastic bag, crush the 1 remaining Graham cracker; sprinkle over the top of the dessert.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight
The longer you let the dessert set, the softer the crackers will be.
