Banana Cream Pie (made with ice cream)

In honor of Mother’s Day, I’m sharing one of my mom’s original pie recipes.  I’ve mentioned before that my mom was famous for her pies.  She could mix and roll out a pie crust faster than you and I could open the Pillsbury package!

This Banana Cream Pie recipe is one she created and as long been a family favorite.  And yes, the secret ingredient is Ice Cream!  {Now you know it’s going to be good!!}   The ice cream gives it a much richer flavor than the pudding alone, and this is so much easier than cooking the filling.  If you are wondering if you keep it frozen – the answer is no.  You mix the ice cream with instant pudding and yes,  it sets up perfectly!

I loved this pie because I could make it on my own at a very young age – your kids will be able to make it too; and they’ll love being able to make a special treat for the family!  It’s simple and yummy – what more can you ask for?


Banana Cream Pie


1 baked 9 inch pie crust  
3-4 bananas
2 cups vanilla ice cream
1 large box vanilla instant pudding
1 cup milk

Whipped Cream
2 cups whipping cream
4-6 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla


Slice bananas into baked pie shell (make sure it’s cooled).  Mix pudding, ice cream and milk with electric mixer until smooth.   Pour over bananas.


Refrigerate until set and chilled (2-3 hours).   Whip cream with powdered sugar and vanilla, spread over pie and serve . . .  So easy;  sooo good!
