Want a summer-friendly dessert that’s both easy to make and refreshing? You don’t have to turn on the oven to make this banana split pie loaded with pineapple, banana, strawberries, and of course lots of sprinkles, nuts, cherries, and hot fudge sauce.

1. MAKE the crust. In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and salt. Pour out into a buttered 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of the dish using your hands. Place in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
2. MAKE the filling. Beat the cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Pour onto the chilled crust and use a rubber spatula to smooth out evenly. Top with an even layer of sliced bananas. Spread with the crushed pineapple, followed by the sliced strawberries.
3. MAKE the topping. Beat the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract in a medium bowl until soft peaks form, about 5 to 8 minutes. Spoon the whipped cream on top of the pineapple and strawberry layer; gently spread to form an even layer.
