2 Delicious No Bake Banana Dessert Recipes
By Shelly Hill
Are you looking for some great no baking involved dessert recipes? If so, I think you will enjoy these two recipes which use bananas, along with some additional ingredients.
I try to feed bananas to my family almost on a daily basis because they are healthy for us. They are high in potassium and low in sodium, making them the ideal healthy fruit. They are great for reducing depression, achieving bone and intestinal health, and for regulating high blood pressure.
Bananas can be used in a variety of ways. You can eat them plain as a snack, make some bread, pudding, cakes or even a pie.
The following 2 recipes are great tasting and easy to make.
No-Bake Banana Split Dessert
4 large bananas
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 1/2 sticks of margarine, melted
3 cups crushed pineapple, drained
2 cups confectioners sugar
1 small package chopped nuts
1 large tub of Cool Whip
1 jar maraschino cherries
*optional* Chocolate Sauce
In a medium-sized bowl, combine the 1/2 stick of melted margarine and graham cracker crumbs. Spread mixture evenly into the bottom of a 9 x 13" baking pan and place in the freezer for 15 minutes. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, 2 cups of melted margarine and confectioners sugar. Mix those 3 ingredients together using a mixer for 10-15 minutes. Remove baking pan from freezer and spread this mixture over top of the graham cracker crumbs. Slice bananas on top and then add the drained crushed pineapple. Cover pineapple with Cool Whip and sprinkle chopped nuts and cherries on top. Cover pie and refrigerate for 6 hours before serving. If desired, you can serve chocolate sauce over top of the pie but don't add it until 15 minutes before serving the pie to your guests.
No-Bake Banana Pudding Dessert
1 (12 ounce) box vanilla wafers
2 (4-ounce) boxes vanilla or banana cream instant pudding mix
3 cups of cold milk
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

Line a 13 x 9" baking dish with a single or double layer of vanilla wafers, then add banana slices. In a large bowl, prepare instant pudding mixes according to box directions and using the 3 cups of cold milk; mix in the sweetened condensed milk and then fold in the thawed Cool Whip. Pour this mixture immediately over the sliced bananas and vanilla wafers. Refrigerate dessert for 4-6 hours before serving.
