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

    This recipe is so easy and if you love bananas, you are bound to love this pie too. It’s light, fluffy and full of delicious banana flavor. Plus it’s made with just 5 simple ingredients…one being a box of instant banana pudding mix. It honestly doesn’t get any easier than this!

    I dressed mine up a little bit by piping on some homemade whipped cream with a large 1M tip. Then I added small dollops on the inside of the crust. I also garnished with some fresh banana slices too!

    1. Whisk. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together pudding and milk for about 2-3 minutes (until mixture thickens).

    3. Chill. Refrigerate the pie for at least 3 hours before serving. Top with remaining cool whip (or whipped cream) and fresh bananas.

    Make ahead + storing

    • Making in advance: The pie needs to chill for at least 3 hours before serving in order to set, so it’s even better if you can let it set overnight! Just make the pie according to instructions and then place in the refrigerate overnight. When ready to serve, top with whipped cream and fresh bananas.
    • To store: Loosely cover the pie top with aluminum foil (or plastic wrap) and place in the fridge. It will keep in the refrigerator for about 3-4 days.
