Banana Cream Pie (The Easy Version)


Hello everyone! I hope that you have all had an amazing Memorial Day weekend. The weather didn’t really cooperate with us this past weekend so we definitely had a lackluster kick-off to the summer season. With the rain and wind, we didn’t venture out much. We basically stayed home the whole weekend and spent some quality time together. I did A LOT of cooking, some crocheting, and not so much blogging. When the hubby is home I don’t get too much computer time so I’ve been a bad blogger this weekend.

On Sunday, I found myself wanting Banana Cream Pie…like really craving it. I didn’t want to waste too much time on it so I started looking up recipes and everything seemed so time consuming that I didn’t want to even try them. I got the gist of what the pie is supposed to be like so I decided to make my own fast and easy pie using a few store bought ingredients. If I was patient enough, I would have made everything from scratch but I was not and this is what I came up with. If you’re in a pinch and want a great dessert, give this a try:

Banana Cream Pie (The Easy Version)
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
  • 1 ready made vanilla wafer crust
  • 2 ripe bananas, sliced
  • 1 package of Instant Vanilla Pudding
  • 1 cup of cold milk
  • 3/4 cup cold half and half
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the vanilla pudding with the milk and half and half. Set aside.
  2. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, whip the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla together until you have a stiff whipped cream.
  3. Using half of the bananas, layer into the bottom of the pie crust.
  4. Pour half of the pudding over the bananas.
  5. Add one more layer using remaining bananas and finish with other half of the pudding.
  6. If you want to get fancy, using a piping bag with your favorite tip, pipe the whipped cream around the edge of the pie.
  7. If you don’t have a piping bag, you can just dollop the whipped cream around.
  8. Refrigerate at least one hour.
