A great twist on Banana Cream Pie, this no bake cheesecake is perfect for summer!

Hun... Whats for Dinner? | Banana Toffee No Bake Cheesecake- A great twist on Banana Cream Pie, this no bake cheesecake is perfect for summer!

Last week my friend Susan, who is the owner of Mom's Recipe Collection, a group on Facebook, contacted me to let me know that a link to one of my blog posts was no longer working. After doing a little searching, I realized that my blog post has totally disappeared. So that prompted me to go through all 1000 recipes I have posted, to see if anything else is missing. Thankfully there wasn't, but it makes me wonder how and why this certain recipe has disappeared. So, I took all precautions needed to ensure that no one but me can access my blog. Today, I will share this wonderful recipe with you once more.

 I wanted to turn banana cream pie, into a no bake cheesecake, which is how I thought of this recipe. It is sweet, tangy, creamy and crunchy. A great way to use up those ripe bananas during the hot summer months when you don't want to turn on the oven to bake banana bread.

Banana Toffee No Bake Cheesecake

16 graham cracker squares, crushed
2 Tbs brown sugar
1/4 C butter, melted
8 oz  light cream cheese, softened
1/3 C brown sugar, packed
2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1 pkg instant vanilla pudding mix
3/4 C milk
1 C heavy cream
1/4 C powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 C caramel ice cream topping, plus more for garnish
1/4 C toffee bits, plus 2 Tbs for garnish

  1. In a bowl, combine the graham crumbs, 2 Tbs brown sugar and melted butter. Mix until all mixture is wet and press into a deep dish 9-inch pie plate.
  2. Spread caramel ice cream topping, evenly, over graham crust and sprinkle with 1/4 C toffee bits. Refrigerate, while making the filling.
  3. In another bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Add the brown sugar and banana; beat until combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the pudding mix and milk, until well combined; let rest 5 minutes. Gently fold the pudding into the cream cheese mixture. Spread into the bottom of the graham crust. Refrigerate, while making the whipped cream.
  5. In your mixer's bowl, add the cream and beat to soft peaks. Slowly add the vanilla and powdered sugar and beat to stiff peaks. Spread whipped cream over cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate the pie for 6 hrs, to over night.
  6. Before serving, drizzle with additional caramel sauce and sprinkle with toffee bits.

I am so happy you shared this on The Yuck Stops Here! Hubby and I were just discussing what some of his favorite foods were so that I could decide on something to make him for Father's Day and cheesecake was the winner. I was just starting a search for cheesecake recipes as I was checking out the link party and there was your link! It looks scrumptious & I'm almost certain I will give it a try! I hope you'll bring something scrumptious to the party again next week! HUGS
