I love a good pie, but once the weather heats up, the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven. This is a simple recipe for banana cream pie-sicles (fave!) that transforms one of my family’s favourite desserts into a refreshing warm weather treat. Bonus: it’s so much easier to eat than a pie!
Banana Cream Pie-sicles
My kids love pie, but once the weather heats up, the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven.
- graham crackers: 8
- butter: 4 tablespoons
- instant banana pudding: 1 package
- instant vanilla pudding: 1 package
- disposable paper cups: 8

- sliced fruit: 1 cup (optional)
Step 1: Crush the graham crackers in a baggie.
Step 2: Melt the butter and add it to the graham cracker dust.
Step 3: Cook the puddings separately according to the box directions. Start by adding a few spoonfuls of vanilla pudding to the bottom of the cup.
Step 4: Add a layer of graham cracker crumbles.
Step 5: Add a large layer of banana pudding.
Step 6: Add another layer of graham cracker crumbles.
Step 7: Finish off with a small layer of vanilla pudding.
Step 8: Insert a popsicle stick into the center and place in your freezer for several hours or overnight.
Step 9: Tear the paper cup away.
Optional: I added thin sliced strawberries around the cup before I added the banana layer. YUM!
