Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream Pie is made from scratch and only contains 5 ingredients! It’s peanut butter banana “ice cream” in a graham cracker crust.
I was challenged by #CollectiveBias to create a new recipe with #PBandG: #Yippee Skippy peanut butter and Honey Maid graham crackers. Since it is the holiday baking time and everyone is eating pies, I decided to make a Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream Pie.
I went to Walmart to get the main ingredients. I stopped in the cracker aisle to get Honey Maid graham crackers and use my coupon for $0.50 off when you buy one Honey Maid Grahams (12.2 oz. or larger).
Then I went to the peanut butter aisle to pick up Skippy peanut butter. I already had the rest of the ingredients at home: butter, sugar and ripe bananas.
My toddler loves eating Honey Maid graham crackers as a snack. I also enjoy eating them with her.
Skippy peanut butter is also very popular in our house. My husband usually packs peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for work.
My toddler and I like to build graham cracker houses for fun. They are really easy to build and make a nice snack afterwards. First, you just need the main “building supplies”: graham crackers and peanut butter. The graham crackers make up the walls and roof. The peanut butter acts as the glue to hold the decorations and house together.
We always decorate our house first before assembling since it makes it easier. We use chocolate bars for the doors and windows, and chocolate candy for the roof.
After the walls and roof are decorated, it’s time to assemble the house. I usually spread peanut butter on the edges prior to assembling then as needed during. I start assembling with the front door, then the walls and the back. After the base of the house is built. I add the roof pieces. Then the graham cracker house is complete and ready to eat.
Now onto my easy Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream Pie recipe. First thing I do is put a whole packet of graham crackers in a plastic baggie and let my toddler crush them. Once they are ground into crumbs, I add in the sugar and let her shake the bag. Then in a bowl, I mix together the melted butter and graham cracker mixture. I press the mixture into a pie plate covering the sides and bottom. I bake the graham cracker crust in the oven at 375 F for 7 minutes and allow it to cool on the countertop.
In my high powered blender, I add my slightly thawed banana slices and mix until they are an ice cream consistency. Then I add in the peanut butter until blended and pour the mixture into my cooled crust. I place the pie in the freezer until we are ready to eat a piece. My toddler especially loves the Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream Pie and she doesn’t even like bananas.
