Everyone loves homemade desserts but sometimes there’s just not enough time to make some from scratch. Here’s a great recipe for my No Bake Fresh Banana Torte using just 5 store bought ingredients. It tastes so good everyone will think you spent all day making it!
I made this last week for our Sunday night barbecue, everyone loved it! The twins especially loved it! When my husband searched for leftovers the next day there was just a small piece left!
I made this torte using a 9″ square baking dish, it was a perfect size for our family. If you need a larger one just double the recipe and use a 9″x13″ pan instead. If making a 9″ torte you will need exactly 32 oreos meaning you will have a few extra cookies to munch on, yum!
I know in the recipe says to refrigerate for at least one hour before serving, it’s okay to serve after an hour, but it will not be very firm and will sort of fall apart. I found that refrigerating longer will make it easier to cut nice neat serving pieces. Actually I made it the night before and it was just perfect.
1 Large Box Instant Banana Pudding (5.1 oz. Size)
3 Cups Milk
1 Package Golden Oreos
1 Tub Cool Whip (8 oz. Size), thawed
2 Large Banana, sliced
1/2 cup Milk
9″ Square pan
If using a larger pan double the recipe
1. Dip Oreos in 1/2 cup milk and place in pan, you will need 16 cookies to cover the bottom of the pan[spacer height=”20px” id=”2″]
2. Make pudding according to box directions using 3 cups of milk. Spread 1/2 of pudding evenly over layer of oreos.[spacer height=”20px” id=”2″]
3. Slice one banana and arrange over pudding layer.[spacer height=”20px” id=”2″]
4. Spread 1/2 of the Cool Whip over bananas.[spacer height=”20px” id=”2″]
Repeat steps 1-4 making a second layer of milk dipped Oreos, pudding, sliced bananas, and ending with the second layer of Cool Whip.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. The longer the torte is refrigerated the easier it will be to cut nice neat slices. You can make this a day a head and refrigerate overnight.
Drizzle each slice with chocolate or strawberry syrup before serving.
Makes 6 servings.
