Who doesn’t love a good pie? I do! I would choose pie over cake any day of the week.
Last week I received a new cookbook, Sally’s Baking Addiction: Irresistible Cupcakes, Cookies, and Desserts for Your Sweet Tooth Fix. OMG! You must get this cookbook. If you love fabulous food photography and desserts then you will love this book.
I’ve been a fan of her blog for many years and she did a phenomenal job on this book. In the book, I found a recipe for Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Pie. It sounded and looked fabulous so I decided to make my version of it. I did adapt it a bit.
I decided to make this pie even easier by using a pre-made graham cracker crust. There is no shame in using pre-made products and making it your own. I also decided chocolate would be a great add to this recipe. I just used Hershey’s syrup and put it over my bananas in the bottom of the crust and then on the top. Gives it a great chocolate taste. Also, I used vanilla bean paste instead of extract. Gave the peanut butter mixture a nice speckled look.

- I used a pre-made graham cracker crust or you can make your own
- 1 banana,sliced
- Chocolate sauce
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 tbsp vanilla bean paste or extract
- I took a banana, thinly sliced it and then placed the slices all over the bottom of the crust. I then took the chocolate sauce and drizzled it all over the bananas. Use as much or as little as you would like.
- In a medium bowl, whip the heavy cream till stiff peaks form. Takes about 4 to 5 minutes.
- In a larger bowl, beat the cream cheese and peanut butter together until creamy. Add the sugar and the vanilla bean paste or extract and mix well.
- Using a rubber spatula, fold in the whipped cream.
- Spread the mixture on top of the bananas and chocolate. Cover and freeze for at least 6 hours.
- Serving: Allow pie to come to room temperature and then add some banana slices on top and drizzle more chocolate on top. Slice with a warm, slightly wet knife to help cut the pie.
