An irresistible, easy-to-make, no-bake dessert! This Banana Pudding Peanut Butter Pie is a cinch, and who doesn’t love bananas and peanut butter together?
We almost always make my Grandma’s No Bake Peanut Butter Pie recipe, no matter what season or holiday, but this past Christmas was a rare occasion where we didn’t make it! I had to make it a few times after Christmas because it didn’t feel right to go through the holidays without it.
With all the variations I’ve made on that peanut butter pie recipe, like this Reese’s Cup No Bake Peanut Butter Pie recipe, this Nutter Butter No Bake Peanut Butter Pie recipe, and this No Bake Peanut Butter Pie with Pretzel Crust, I can’t believe I didn’t think of this Banana Pudding Peanut Butter Pie recipe sooner, but at least we have it now. I think it’s going to make an appearance for Easter.
The idea for this pie came from my S.O. In early December, he looked at me and told me to make something that would use up our bananas. It’s exceptional that I can get my hands on bananas at all because he eats them so quickly, but we had quite a few to use up.
I was planning on making a new version of that peanut butter pie recipe anyway, and as soon as he told me to use up some bananas, the idea for this Banana Pudding Peanut Butter Pie recipe just clicked. I discovered that I already had two boxes of banana pudding on hand too, so here we have it – a Banana Pudding Peanut Butter Pie. It was meant to be.
A layer of fresh banana slices, followed by a layer of banana pudding, and topped with light, mousse-y, traditional no-bake peanut butter pie filling! This Banana Pudding Peanut Butter Pie recipe is easily thrown together in a store-bought prepared crust, so it’s ready in minutes, but if you want to go an extra step, try a Nilla wafer crust! I plan to do that next.
