A peanut butter graham cracker crust filled with bananas, Reese’s spread, vanilla pudding and whipped cream, topped with peanut butter cups, chocolate shavings and salted peanuts — the best banana cream pie you’ll ever have!

So, I was out one day this summer with my 3 year old, my 8 month old, and my 3 year old niece. We met some friends, went to the wading pool, played all through nap time and then I dragged them, exhausted, through the grocery store. One aisle at a time, of course, because as I was distracted by them acting all ridiculous in the cart, I managed to delete my entire grocery list off of my phone, one letter at a time.

I’m not even sure how I could possibly have had the same finger on the backspace button on my phone for that long, while dealing with the ridiculousness, and not having moved it at some point.

But then I looked down at my grocery list, ready to move on and actually accomplish something, and it was gone.

The baby is crying, and the un-napped 3 year olds are about to fall to pieces.

But hey, we made it (I bribed them).

And then I insisted on ice cream for supper. Mostly because I needed it after a whole day out with 3 kids.

So we went to one of my favorite ice cream places, The Velvet Dip, and when we were walking up I saw a sign for a Funky Monkey, with peanut butter, chocolate, whipped cream, bananas…. SO good.

When I learned about the opportunity to create something insanely delicious with the new Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate spread from Reese Canada, I had other plans. Most of them ridiculously chocolately and over the top. But we were in one of my favorite places, Baked Expectations over the weekend, and though I usually go straight for the cake when we’re there, I almost wish this time I would have gone for a cream pie. Those heavenly mounds of whipped cream!

I’ve been having cravings for cream pie since then and I just couldn’t ignore them. I’m glad I didn’t.

I kind of think peanut butter and chocolate is the only way to do banana cream pie. I don’t always love banana desserts (they’re just not always very dessert-y, you know?), but I do love a banana cream pie. This Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread is a fabulous addition and it tastes just like Reese Peanut Butter Cups!

Because we all needed an excuse to eat peanut butter cups on our toast for breakfast, right?

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs

Pie:

  • 2 bananas sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread
  • 1 instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • chocolate shavings, salted peanuts, or peanut butter cups for garnish as desired optional

Instructions

  • Crust: In a medium bowl, microwave peanut butter in 15 second intervals, stirring each time, until melted (warm enough to stir easily). Add graham cracker crumbs to bowl and stir until combined.
  • Pour crumb mixture into a deep dish 9″ pie plate and press into the bottom and up the sides. Be sure to press firmly so the crust will hold together.
  • Pie: Lay bananas over the bottom of the crust.
  • In a small bowl, microwave Reese spread in 10-15 second intervals, stirring each time, until easily poured and spread. Pour over bananas in the crust.
  • Combine pudding mix and milk with a whisk until smooth. Pour over Reese spread.
  • With an electric mixer, whip cream until soft peaks form. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and continue whipping until stiff peaks form. Spread whipped cream over pudding in pie crust.
  • Top with optional garnishes as desired and refrigerate at least 3-4 hours before serving.

Notes

I have made cream pies with homemade vanilla pudding before, and I haven’t found a homemade vanilla pudding that I like as much as the boxed mix (I know! No judging) — feel free to use homemade vanilla pudding if you prefer.

    Would you blind bake the crust before making the pie? This appears to be a pretty good pie and I would like to make this as I have some serious peanut butter, banana, and chocolate fans in the family, ya know?

    The wading pool with toddlers and babies was such a fun day with much laughter, tears and funny photos… But I never guessed it would also lead to such a fantastic-looking cream pie! This is definitely going on my must-make-soon list! Wow thanks!

    Banana cream pie is a favorite of mine, and you’ve made it even more delicious here — and no-bake to boot! Being out all day with 3 small children definitely calls for ice cream. 🙂

    Omg, your day out with three kids totally calls for ice cream for dinner! I’m exhausted after a day with my niece and nephew. And the grocery list erasing? Ughh! Anyways, this pie is HOLY COW AMAZING! I am a huge fan of peanut butter and bananas (sans chocolate, I’m allergic), and I can just imagine how good this cream pie is! I totally have to make this next time I have company…or just for Boy, He’d go crazy for this! Pinned! Cheers!

    Hi Ashley! You are the Queen of no bake!! I make a really rich custard for cream puffs that would be a good “pudding” in this. 🙂

  7. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says

    I’m seriously addicted to that Reese’s spread, not even kidding! Ever since it came out last year, I buy it with the sole purpose of eating it with a spoon…I just can’t get enough of it! This pie though, wow! It looks gorgeous. What a great way to use that spread and bananas!

    Yummm!!! This is the perfect recipe for me right now because I’m in the southern hemisphere headed into spring/summer so no bake recipes are lifesaving!
