Instant banana cream pudding mix
Whipped topping or Cool Whip
SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS
Pick Your Pudding: This is a great base recipe for other filling flavors! Chocolate, vanilla, butterscotch, lemon, banana pudding, etc would also taste delicious. Just make sure you purchase the instant pudding mix or it won’t work with this ice box cake.
Tasty Toppings: Feel free to add your favorite toppings to this tasty treat, like crushed nilla wafers, a drizzle of chocolate sauce or caramel sauce, chopped nuts (like pecans or walnuts), or even melted peanut butter!
Change The Cookie: Vanilla wafers, chocolate graham crackers, pecan sandies, or shortbread cookies can be used instead of classic graham crackers. I would not use a sandwich cookie, however, because they are too thick to properly soften in the pudding mixture to get the right consistency.
Add Fruit To Your Filling: Feel free to add fresh fruit to your filling. You can use strawberries, bananas, or other thinly-sliced soft fruit, such as mangoes, peaches, or even raspberries.

HOW TO MAKE BANANA ICEBOX CAKE
This no-bake layered graham cracker pudding dessert is so quick and easy to prepare in just 15 minutes! It’s perfectly cool and creamy for warm-weather parties, potlucks, and backyard barbecues.
Make The Pudding Mixture: Whisk together the banana cream mix and milk and stir until it starts to thicken about 1 minute. Fold in whipped topping and set aside.
Assemble: Place the graham crackers into the bottom of a baking pan. Spoon the pudding mixture over the cookie layer, smooth it out, and repeat 2 more times. Top with graham crackers and cover with remaining whipped cream.
Pro Tip: You may need to break some of the graham crackers up to fit in the bottom of the pan.
Chill: Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 6 hours, or even better overnight.
Serve: Garnish with crushed graham cracker crumbs and fresh banana slices if desired. Slice and serve. Enjoy!
