Blueberry Banana Pie

Blueberry Banana Pie

One of my very, very, very favorite recipes is my Grandmother’s Strawberry Banana Pie.  She has probably been making this little pie for over 50 years.  We count on it every summer when we’re swimming and eating outdoors.  It is one of our family’s staple recipes.  Well, since we love it so much and since it’s been years since I’ve blogged it, I decided to put a new spin on the classic.  This time, I mixed and matched the recipe into a blueberry version.  Same simple recipe, just with a new berry.  You want to know what else I love about this recipe?  You could do a combination of both fruit and it would be a very Red, White and Blue recipe for your patriotic holidays 🙂 .

This pie is best when made in advance, so I would recommend you putting it together 24 hours prior to serving.  You should also go ahead and make two…because it will be devoured!

This recipe makes one pie.

Shopping List
1 prepared pie crust, baked and ready to go (either store-bought or homemade)
3 oz of cream cheese (so about half an 8 oz block), softened
the juice of 1 lemon
1 ½ cups sugar
1 large Cool Whip, thawed a bit
2 bananas, sliced
2 cups of fresh blueberries
In a medium sized bowl, combine cream cheese, lemon juice and sugar with a wooden spoon.  Fold in Cool Whip along with one cup of blueberries .  Lay sliced bananas across the bottom of your cooked (and fully cooled) pie shell.  Top banana slices with your Cool Whip and blueberry mixture.  Sprinkle remaining cup of blueberries across the top.  Refrigerate at least 12 hours (if not, your sugar won’t dissolve in your pie and it will be grainy tasting).  Slice, serve and enjoy!

    I love fruit pies, especially when they’re topped with blueberries!

      I keep it simple with this recipe and use a refrigerated crust!

    I’m making this now but I’m wondering it it takes the 16oz large tub of cool whip? My first pie ever to make for our 15th anniversary….here’s to hoping it tastes as good as it looks!! 🙂
