Quick and Easy Chocolate Banana Pie Topped with Whip Cream

Pies happen to be one of my most favorite desserts but so many pies call for long cooking times in the oven.  With the Summer heat upon us, I try to find recipes with little oven cooking time and that often need refrigeration to keep everyone cool.  I have a few favorites and this is one of them.  I actually only enjoy a few chocolate type desserts and that’s my grandmother’s chocolate sheet cake and this chocolate banana pie.

It’s very easy to make and if you have 15 minutes to bake and cool a pie shell, then it’s a great dessert lifesaver for when company decides they want to come over last minute.  I bought the pie shell and usually do keep a few on hand for times like that but if you prefer to make it, I have a perfect pie crust recipe which would make this pie even more delicious.

Recipe: Quick and Easy Chocolate Banana Pie Topped with Whip Cream


  • 1 5.9oz Box Instant Chocolate Pudding
  • 1 Pie Shell
  • 1-2 Bananas
  • Whip Cream (tub or can)
  • Chocolate Candy Bar like Hershey’s


  1. Preheat oven to 425′ and bake pie shell for 10-12 minutes until golden; remove and let cool. While pie shell is baking, mix instant pudding according to package directions. Pour part of the pudding mixture into the pie shell. Slice bananas on layer on top of pudding. Make as many layers as you want. Top with Whip Cream and grate or shave the chocolate candy bar to finish it off.

    I Love making chocolate cream pie but honestly, I never thought to add bananas to it. I wonder how it would taste with a layer of banana pudding too.
