BANANA PUDDING PIE INGREDIENTS

A close up of a sign

You will need:

  • 1 large box instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • ½ cup half and half
  • 2-3 large bananas
  • Nilla Wafers
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 9 inch pie crust

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

CRUST: If you like a little more crunch with your pie you can opt for a Nilla Wafer or graham cracker crust.

BANANA EXTRACT: Swap out the 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract for banana extract to give your pie even more fruity banana flavor.

HOW TO MAKE THIS BANANA PUDDING PIE RECIPE

STEP ONE: While the pie dough is still chilled, roll it out and place it into a 9 inch baking dish. Crimp the edges of the pie crust. Note: you can use a store bought pie crust or make your own.

STEP TWO: Gently place a piece of foil down into the pie crust and fill it with dried beans or pie weights. Let the crust sit for several minutes on the counter so that it comes to room temperature. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 450.

STEP THREE: Once the oven has preheated, bake the pie crust for 10 minutes. Briefly remove it from the oven, take out the foil and beans and then place it back into the oven for 2 – 3 more minutes. Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool completely before proceeding.

STEP FOUR: To make the pudding filling, whisk together the pudding mix, milk and half and half. Place in the refrigerator and chill until ready to use.

STEP FIVE: Once the pie crust has cooled completely, place 1 – 2 layers of sliced bananas on the bottom of the pie crust.

STEP SIX: Spread the chilled pudding filling over the top of the bananas.

STEP SEVEN: To make the whipped cream, pour whipping cream into the base of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Add vanilla and powdered sugar. Mix on low until the powdered sugar is mixed in, then turn to high and whip for 1 minute or until stiff peaks form. Place in a piping bag and pipe around the edges of the pie. Alternate the top of the whipped cream with Nilla Wafers and banana slices.

PRO TIP: If you’re serving right away, you can fully assemble at once. However, if you’re making it ahead of time, I would suggest waiting to add the whipped cream, bananas, and wafers until you’re going to serve your guests so nothing gets soggy or discolored.

Can You Freeze Banana Pudding Pie?

Yes, you can freeze banana pudding pie. If you plan to freeze your pie, leave off the toppings (whipped cream, bananas and Nilla Wafers) until you’re ready to serve it. This will keep the topping fresh and prevent the cookies from getting soggy.
