This is the Best No Bake Banana Split Cake Dessert Recipe is a classic, dreamy, creamy dessert that’s perfect for your sweet tooth.

There is a wonderful balance of sweet and tangy flavors in this yummy Banana Split Cake recipe because of the cream cheese added to this dessert. The wonderful flavor of cream cheese is what makes this banana dessert recipe so different from the regular banana desserts recipes. Can you ask for a better dessert than this recipe that has fruits, nuts chocolate and all the creaminess? There is something very unmatchably tasty yet healthy when you combine fruits like bananas in desserts. The creamy texture of mashed banana adds thickness and makes for an excellent addition to desserts. No-bake recipes are less fussy and easy to make for a perfect brunch or just about any occasion. Because of the nutritional value of banana in the recipe, it is not only a great way of getting kids to eat healthily but also allows them to enjoy a much deserved sweet treat from time to time. The nutritional value of banana mainly comes from potassium which helps maintain blood pressure levels and heart functioning. To prevent the bananas from discolouring or turning brownish you can sprinkle a bit of lemon juice and give it a good tossing before you incorporate them in the dessert.

This yummy banana dessert recipe will taste the best when it is completely set in the refrigerator preferably overnight or at least for 3 hours. For a dessert like this one, you can add toppings of your choice like blanched almonds and chopped pecans or fruit bits like chopped peaches, candy sprinkles, etc. Instead of ‘Cool Whip,’ a healthier alternative you could perhaps use is beating together heavy whipping cream with cane sugar until its thick. For extra stability, add a tablespoon of instant vanilla pudding to the whipping cream. Combining instant vanilla pudding prevents the watery texture in the recipe. You can even use condensed milk to get a slightly different flavour with organic whipping cream.

For the crust, in place of Graham crackers you can also try shortbread cookies, ‘Digestive’ or ‘Rich Tea biscuits’ or even ladyfingers. You can try using Oreos, or Sara Lee pound cake, Milk Arrowroots, Vanilla wafers, soda crackers as well. As a healthy option in this recipe, you can substitute the cream cheese with full-fat vanilla Greek Yogurt or just use the fat-free cream cheese. A good dairy-free option for people who are lactose intolerant would be to use coconut ice cream in the place of cream cheese or just stick to using vegan cream cheese.
