No-Cook Banana Cream Pie

A delicious dessert is just minutes away. Recipes do not get much easier than this banana cream pie and the results are fabulous!

       This super simple banana cream pie is perfect for a last minute dessert. It's also a great quick and easy make ahead. There is no cooking involved, it only takes a few minutes to make and requires just a few simple ingredients!



      Life is always hectic this time of year. There are festivals, dance recitals, end of school year activities and more.

      But just because life is busy doesn't mean you can't eat deliciously. It just means you have to have a few tricks up your sleeves!

Putting whipped cream into a mixing bowl with pudding mixture


       This banana cream pie is perfect for a carry-in. It's also a great cool and creamy summer treat.

       With the help of a premade pie crust and some instant pudding, you can have it ready to go in about 10 minutes. The hardest part is whipping the cream, and I know you can handle that!

        You can eat your pie right away if you'd like, but I like letting it sit in the refrigerator for a bit first.  It gives the banana a chance to give some flavor to the pie and helps it firm up a bit.

        For this pie you want to use nice yellow bananas. The green ones are a little to firm and starchy.

       A few brown spots on the peel are ok, but you really don't want to use overripe brown bananas. Save those for banana bread, banana cake or nice cream!

      If you are in the mood for quick and easy desserts, you may also like my cousin Emily's no bake peanut butter chocolate bars. They are one of my husband's all time favorites!

     If it's banana goodness you are in the mood for, you are going to love Di's banana cake. It does take some baking, but the caramel frosting makes it totally worth it!

      Do you have a favorite quick and easy dessert recipe? I'm all ears. After all, I'm always looking for an excuse to whip up a treat!
