This simple recipe is a combination of banana cheesecake and banana cream pie all rolled into one dessert! It uses an Oreo®-cookie crust instead of the traditional graham cracker crust, adding a bit of a chocolate accent. Plus, it uses fat-free cream cheese, but proves to taste rich and creamy for a banana-y treat! Garnish with whipped cream and sliced bananas, if desired.

This was a huge hit! We used real whipped cream (just whipped heavy cream until thick and creamy) instead of the frozen whipped topping, and gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookies. We had guests over and they had the recipe by the next morning. Yum! Read More

This was really delicious and my family liked it. The only change: I used full fat cream cheese in the cheesecake and full fat topping. (Could not get fat-free frozen topping) Read More

Super yummy! I ve made it a couple of times and I ve used more banana maybe double because I mashed too much. Both times I also only used one box of pudding and half the milk to make up for it and everyone thought it was plenty. I also make my own whipped cream. Already a part of my favorites thank you!!

This turned out marvelous with a few adjustments I made. First, I tripled the butter in the crust. Since I only had a 10 inch springform pan, this might’ve had something to do with it. Then, I added about 1/8 cup of corn starch when I whipped the cream cheese to give it a lighter texture. I got this from the Junior’s Cheesecake recipe from New York. I also added about a teaspoon of banana extract to the cheesecake mixture as well. Next time I make this, I’ll probably use something like vanilla wafers for the crust. The chocolate was nice. But, I think the vanilla would make it lighter and more elegant. I also froze the completed cake for the first hour after adding the topping to help is set a little faster. It’s delicious! And, it’s held up really well for a couple days after, too. Read More

Great recipe! I used chocolate filled Oreos for the crust and sprinkled choc shavings on top to give it some color. My husband loved it! Read More

it's great, but I make some changes, I wrapped the mould in foil and put it in the oven tray and poured boiling water into the tray, which kept the cake from cracking, and I serve it with caramel topping. Read More
