Make a Banana Split Pie for Your Summer Gathering
Put a spin on one of summer’s favorite desserts – banana split! I love this recipe because it’s (a) easy (b) delicious and (c) so cute! Any excuse to add sprinkles to a dessert is a must in my book. This banana split pie dessert recipe is also very customizable to your family’s favorite flavors. Bring it to a picnic or your next summer party, and you’ll hear rave reviews!
I decided to take all my favorite parts of a banana split and create a pie recipe. I love strawberry topping (I opted for fresh strawberries), hot fudge sauce, ice cream, sliced bananas, and of course – a cherry on top!
To customize this recipe, swap out the vanilla ice cream for your favorite flavor or add in an extra layer of strawberry or chocolate ice cream for a double-decker banana split pie! No matter what flavors you use, it’s sure to be a summer hit!
1 refrigerated (or prepared) pie crust
1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened
1 cup hot fudge sauce
2 bananas, thinly sliced
1 cup strawberries, thinly sliced
1 container whipped topping, refrigerated
Maraschino cherry + sprinkles – for garnish!
Prepare pie crust according to instructions, in your pie pan.
Once pie crust is fully cooled, layer on hot fudge sauce. Use a spoon to spread it around until bottom of pie crust is fully covered.
Spread on vanilla ice cream and layer on bananas and strawberries.
Top with whipped topping.
Garnish with cherries, sprinkles, and extra sliced fruit!
Tip: Freeze pie for at least 4 hours before serving so it is easier to slice.
