I love making Icebox Cakes… if you’ve never made one, you have to try it!  They are SO simple to make, no baking required and you can do it ahead of time so it’s easy if you are having guests or need to take it along somewhere!

For this No Bake Banana Split Icebox Cake recipe I used very ripe bananas, if you toss them with the pineapple juice, they don’t brown at all!  If you don’t love pineapple, you can use fresh strawberries instead (or even as well as!).

  • 8 oz cream cheese , softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 package (4 servings size) instant vanilla pudding
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 cups whipped topping (such as Cool Whip), divided

Top with remaining cream cheese mixture and pineapple. Add a third and final layer of graham crackers. Top with remaining 2 cups of whipped topping, cherries and nuts. Drizzle with chocolate.

  5. I think I just died and went to dessert heaven. I love banana splits and this absolutely takes the cake {pun intended}. ;) My mouth is watering and I am wanting to make a trip to the grocery store all of a sudden. Thank you so much for sharing and for linking up to Thrifty Thursday.

  6. I make this and mix sliced strawberries in one of the cream cheese layers.. I get many compliments with it

  7. First time visiting your website! I am so impressed! I’m going out and buy the ingredients for the banana split!!

  8. Do you crush graham crackers or leave whole?

  9. Can we use any plain cream cheese like philadelphia cream cheese? And can we replace graham crackers with any other crackers as ww dont get them here where i live (zimbabwe)

    • Philadelphia cream cheese is what I used in this recipe (the square not the tub). I think you could use any type of hard packaged cookie and it would work just fine (it may change the texture and/or flavor though!). :)

  10. I have made this several times. The only thing I do different is, I make it into pies. This Recipe will make 3 of them. Everyone I have made them for, loves it. Well, except my husband, but he’s a picky eater anyway. LOL

  11. I’ve seen MANY Banana Split Icebox Cake recipes lately as I’ve been looking for one to replace one I had almost 40 years ago & this is the BEST one I’ve seen so far. This is my 1st time to your site also & I’ve already printed/saved numerous recipes to try. SO glad I came across your site.

  12. Can’t wait to try several of desserts!

  13. I am so excited to try these recipes. I have wrote down a bunch and bookmarked your page just incase I lose the pages!! It all looks so good.
