A lot of people like these banana cream pies, or chocolate banana cream pies, I've never been a fan. I mean I like the banana flavor with chocolate, but I hate the texture of banana in most deserts. This recipe is my solution to yummy chocolate banana flavor without the banana part I guess.

How to Make Chocolate Banana Pie

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350'F
  • 2Bake pie crust off for 8 minutes until golden.
    Place on wrack to cool
  • 3Prepare chocolate pudding according to directions. Do not refrigerate. Set aside.
  • 4In a small mixing bowl cream together bananas, egg yolks and granulated sugar.
  • 5Add 2 teaspoons of the vanilla extract to the and stir until fully incorporated.
  • 6In a large mixing bowl add pudding and heavy cream. Stir in unsalted butter and cream cheese.
  • 7With a hand blender stir in the banana mixture. Add cocoa and blend until completely incorporated.
  • 8Pour Mixture out into the cooled pie crust.
  • 9Bake for 30-35 minutes, until it puffs up slightly and is firm, not liquid anymore.
  • 10For topping:
    While pie is in the oven: cream together remaining cream cheese, remaining vanilla, melted white chocolate chips, and powdered sugar. Mix until completely incorporated.

    Side Note: I suggest starting your double boiler to melt your white chocolate while the crust is baking off. It should be ready by the time you are mixing your topping.
  • 11Once pie has cooled, spoon topping over the cooled pie and garnish with jimmies.
  • 12Chill before serving.
