No Bake Banana Split PIe

Friday, August 5, 2022
No Bake Banana Split Pie is one of those desserts that people look at it and drool with all those delicious gooey toppings as they wait in anticipation for you to cut and serve it.

I am serious when I tell you not to show guests or family this dessert, because for sure they will eat a lot less of their dinner just to save room for this decadent dessert.

This super easy no-bake banana split tasting pie is made with a graham cracker pie crust full of pudding, sliced bananas, whipped cream, and some fabulous fun tasty toppings that taste just like your favorite ice cream dessert.

A very loved childhood favorite treat going to the Dairy Freeze made my entire summer every year as I couldn't wait for that boat load of sweet toppings on my ice cream with bananas.

This banana cream pie is a dessert you can make all year long no matter what kind of season it is, and the toppings variations are limitless to your preferences.

Although we love our Old Fashioned Banana Cream Pie, this one was a treat with all our favorite toppings and was super easy to make don't forget to try our Banana Split Cake or Banana Split Ice Cream.

We just love caramel, strawberry, and hot fudge combination on top of our banana splits, and of course a cherry or two (or three) on top, however, this pie is so much fun when entertaining guests by setting up a topping bar with all the favorites just like that old fashioned ice cream shop.

We have made this pie with graham cracker crust, a regular baked pie crust or Oreo crust, plus you can use chocolate, vanilla pudding, and even a Marble style using both vanilla and chocolate puddings.

This pie can be topped with real whipped cream or whipped toppings, so you can choose just how fast you want to make this pie with all homemade ingredients are store-bought premade to make it quick and easy.

Toasted nuts or some coconut quickly in the microwave can also be added on top of the whipped cream piled high then drizzled with hot fudge sauce and garnished with some bananas.

I am sure you already have a plan in your head on what your family favorites are and can put one together in no time on any day of the week with our suggestions below will help you create your own pie.

Decadent No-Bake Pies



As I mentioned this pie is strictly for banana split lovers, it's a sweet dessert.


When hosting a party we love setting up a topping bar and just have a cream-topped banana pie and everyone decorates their own with whatever they want.


A perfect dessert for celebrating a birthday party, or holiday and the best dessert after that backyard barbecue.


Don't forget even the summer bounty of all fresh fruits can be used for those who want a less sweet pie!

  6. My mum loves banana splits, but here in the UK they are served in a Banana shaped dish called a boat and it's basically bananas sliced in half lengthways and topped with nuts, often strawberries, chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Yours looks even more amazing!
