Ingredients You’ll Need For This Easy Banana Cream Pie:
- Pre-made graham cracker pie crust
- Box of Jello vanilla instant pudding
- Vanilla wafer cookies
- Cool Whip
How To Make This Easy Banana Cream Pie:
When you are ready to get started, in a large mixing bowl combine the vanilla pudding mix with the milk, whisking it all together and then let it sit for about 5 minutes to let the pudding set up.
After the pudding has set up, get out your premade pie crust and you will begin to assemble the pie.
Start by lining the bottom of the pie crust fully with sliced bananas.
Then, evenly spread about half of the vanilla pudding on top of the sliced bananas.
Once that is done you are going to make a layer of vanilla wafers on top of the pudding.
After the wafer layer is done, spread the rest of the pudding on top of the cookies and then layer the remaning bananas on top of the pudding.
When the last layer of bananas is finished, top it off with the Cool Whip.
Next place the pie in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to let it chill before serving.
Allow the pie 2 hours before serving to give the flavors time to come together and for the wafer to get their ideal consistency for the pie.
