Banana Cream Icebox Cake

Banana Cream Icebox Cake

The classic ice box cake is a simple yet delicious combination of cookies and whipped cream.

Our family goes crazy for banana cream pie so a banana cream icebox cake was a must! It's just as delicious but even easier to make! Serves well for a crowd and most important of all, it tastes like a little slice of Heaven.

Ingredients

  • 2 Packages Graham Crackers
  • 3-4 Large Bananas sliced
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1 3.4 Oz Box French Vanilla Instant Pudding
  • 4 Oz Cream Cheese Softened
  • ½ of a 14 oz can Can of Sweetened Condensed milk
  • 2 1/2 Cups Freshly Whipped Cream

Preparation

  • In a large bowl, combine the pudding and milk and set aside.
  • In another bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth, and then add the sweetened condensed milk and beat again until smooth.
  • Add the pudding into the cream cheese mixture and stir until evenly combined.
  • Add ⅓ of the whipped cream to the bowl, and gently fold it into everything.
  • Add the remaining whipped cream and fold until completely combined.
  • Adding a little at a time is keeping it lighter vs just whipping it all together.
  • Lay a couple of graham crackers in an even layer at the bottom of a 9x13" dish.
  • Cover with banana slices and a couple scoops of filling.
  • Repeat layers until all of the filling is used, ending with filling on top.
  • Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving, up to 1 day.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

This is cream that has already been whipped into soft peaks. To get 2 1/2 cups you'll need 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream, a 1/4 cup of powdered sugar. Whip the whipping cream until soft peaks form, add the powdered sugar and whip again until combined.

I made this cake today, and it is awesome, delicious.

Can You Freeze Ice Box Cakes?

Cover this with aluminum foil and freeze for 2 to 4 hours.

OR you can choose to keep this in the refrigerator, but allow at least 4 hours for the graham crackers to soften.

Prior to serving, remove the icebox cake from the freezer and allow it to thaw for 20 minutes.
