The ginger in the crust makes a great addition to bring out the banana flavor. This is very easy to make and very delish to eat :)

Ingredients

CRUST

13 oz
package of graham cracker crumbs. this equals roughly 3 cups
8 oz
unsalted butter, melted
2 Tbsp
white sugar
1/4 tsp
ginger powder

CHEESECAKE

16 oz
cream cheese
1

1 pkg
instant banana pudding powder
7 oz

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In large bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs with sugar and ginger. Add butter and mix well until all is incorporated.

Butter a baking dish (I used a 9x13). Pour in graham cracker mixture and press it down tightly and along the sides, trying to be as even as possible.
3
Store this in the freezer while you prepare the cheesecake filling.
4
Beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Cut open vanilla bean and scrape out the insides into the cream cheese. Beat until incorporated.
5
Add the pudding mix (add as powder, not as prepared pudding). Beat until mixed together. Pour in the condensed milk and beat for 3-4 minutes.
6
Scoop cheese into baking pan. Spread it out evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in fridge overnight.
7
When ready to serve, grate chocolate over the top.
