Use Your Favorite Type of Pudding

Looking for an inexpensive dessert to make? Pudding pies are not only inexpensive and delicious, but there are so many different ways you can make them. Everyone from children to adults enjoy pudding.

Pudding pies are quick to make with very little preparation.

If you need a last minute dessert for unexpected dinner guests or to take along for a family picnic why not make a pudding pie.

The following recipe is for a chocolate banana peanut butter pudding pie, topped with raspberries. The peanut butter is in the crust.


Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 10 min

Ingredients For the Crust

  • 1/4 cup of white sugar
  • 1/3 cup of either creamy or crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 - 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs

Graham Cracker Crust

  • If you are using graham crackers rather than the prepackaged crumbs you will need twelve whole crackers. These can be either ground up in a food processor or put into a plastic bag and rolled with a rolling pin.
  • You may wish to use a store bought graham cracker crust and omit the peanut butter flavor.
  • To make a plain graham cracker crust use butter in place of the peanut butter.

      Hi Susan,

      Looks yummy but I would prefer just chocolate. Does that mean I would use two boxes of instant chocolate pudding?

      Voted up and awesome

      The combination sounds wonderful. Love banana and chocolate together. And I love the idea of using peanut butter instead of butter or margarine for the crust. Sounds good!

      Susan, I was really getting quite bored of serving custard as dessert. Your recipe put fresh ideas in my head..Though I don't particularly like banana flavor in my dessert, I think I can try the chocolate chip idea.. voted up and sharing.

      I just love pudding... mmmm... lots of it too. It is not to bad calorie wise either, as long as you can do it in moderation. This looks absolutley delicious. I must say though, I kept thinking how awesome would this have been if you would have used an oreo crust! MMMMM delicious!
