A creamy peanut butter banana cream pie takes an all-time favorite pie and combines it with one of the most delicious foods on earth to make a phenomenal no bake dessert.

I’ve said before that peanut butter and chocolate are one of my favorite duos of all time, but I also have a deep love for peanut butter and banana together. I might be 5 years old, but give me a banana and jar of pb and I’m a happy girl!

I am a pie person. Fruit pie. Cream pie. It is always a YES from me! Marionberry pie, Oreo pie, lemon meringue…yes, yes, and heck yes! Oh and skip the birthday cake and make me a birthday pie!

Yes, bacteria can grow if a banana cream pie is left out for more than 2 hours.

Refrigerate for up to 4 days.

Can You Freeze Banana Cream Pie?

You can freeze banana cream pie without the whipped cream on top. Put it in the freezer just until it is set and then wrap it thoroughly in plastic wrap. It can be frozen for up to 3 months.

Whipped cream should be added after it is thawed and just before serving it.

Possible Variations

So you know I’m all about making a recipe my own, so here are some possible variations to make it your own:

  • Use chocolate graham crackers to make a crust
  • Use banana cream pudding rather than vanilla
  • Do a few layers of banana slices layered between pudding
  • Create a peanut butter drizzle to put on top
  • Sprinkle mini chocolate chips on top
  • Top with crumbled up Nutter Butters

I think I could go on and on and on! So many delicious options!
