Strawberry Banana Pudding Pie

This pie was so yummy and easy I wanted to share the recipe with you! Enjoy!



Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups crushed graham crackers
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 boxes of vanilla instant pudding
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 container Cool Whip
  • 2 bananas
  • 6-8 strawberries


Step One: The Crust

  • Melt butter in 2 cup measuring cup or microwave safe bowl
  • Stir in sugar with fork
  • Stir in Graham crackers
  • Grease pan for less sticking
  • Press graham cracker mix on bottom and sides of pie pan
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes to set


Step 2: The fruit

  • Slice 1 1/2 bananas (feed other half banana to baby to keep him occupied while you make pie)
  • Slice a half dozen strawberries
  • Layer the fruit directly on the crust


Step 3: The pudding

  • Mix two 3.4 oz. boxes of vanilla pudding with 2 cups of milk
  • Add 1 cup of Cool Whip to the pudding
  • Pour the pudding mix on top of the fruit and spread with a spoon so it fills the crust
  • Spread Cool Whip on top of pudding. If desired, use frosting gun to make it cutesy. I don't have one, so I just used a spatula.
  • Add a few slices of banana and/or strawberry to the top for added beauty and flavor.
  • Attempt not to eat all in one sitting.


Suggestions for variations:

  • Add pineapple slices to the fruity layers and 1 cup of shredded coconut to the pudding for a tropical treat!
  • Try chocolate pudding with either bananas, strawberries or rasberries. Use chocolate Graham crackers for the crust!
  • Use soymilk or lactose free milk for the pudding if desired/necessary.
