Easy banana cream pie recipe

Easy banana cream pie recipe -this recipe has all the delicious flavors of good old-fashioned banana cream pie but it’s literally done in minutes. Can’t beat that!

So far during pie week I have shared an apple pie, razzleberry pie and pumpkin pie. Another one of my favorite pies is banana cream pie. Yum. This recipe is so easy and if you love bananas, you are bound to love this pie too.

My husband’s grandma makes banana cream pie’s every year (along with about a dozen other pies) for Thanksgiving and it’s always the kids favorite. I was shocked when I heard it was so simple to make.

I dressed this “easy” pie up a little bit by piping on some homemade whipped cream. I just used a large 1M tip.

    Do you bake the pie crust before filling?

    Did you mush the bananas up inside or are they still just in slices mixed in with pudding?

    Banana cream pie has been my #1 pregnancy craving so far! I made this today and used fresh whipped cream instead of cool whip & it was amazing!

    Thank you!

    I think deep dish would be better. The mixture is a lil too much for a regular pie crust. I just tried it today and it’s in the fridge as we speak.

    Can I substitute the milk with almond milk?  Cows milk upsets my stomach.
    Thank you

      I’ve never tried that substitute, but it should work just fine! :)
