Easy Banana Cream Pie Ice Cream - this No Churn Ice Cream Recipe tastes just like a DQ Blizzard!

No churn Banana Cream Pie Ice Cream

I’ve talked to you all about my love of Dairy Queen. Many of you are new, and might want to check out that story. Because now, I’ve passed my love of all things DQ down to Jordan.

When I mention Donner Lake, she mentions stopping at DQ on our way home. Girl after my own heart!

My favorite special blizzard of the month at DQ is the Banana Cream Pie Blizzard. It’s so good I died and went to heaven – and had to recreate it at home.

Easy Banana Pie Ice Cream Ingredients

  • Pie Crust: You can use refrigerated crusts or my all-butter pie crust recipe, or use a store bought graham cracker crust to make it even easier.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk: You need a 14 ounce can.
  • Heavy Whipping Cream or Cool Whip: Just depends on how easy you want to make this recipe!
  • Banana Instant Pudding: You just need the powder, not actual pudding.
  • Banana: If you want chunks of banana in your ice cream.

How to Make Banana Cream Pie Ice Cream

  1. Bake your pie crust and then let it cool. Break it into chunks.
  2. Beat your whipped cream to stiff peaks, if using.
  3. Fold sweetened condensed milk with whipped cream or cool whip and pudding mix. Add banana if desired.
  4. Freeze at least 4 hours or overnight, then eat.

Cool Whip: Use 2 containers of any style whipped topping (regular, fat-free, sugar-free, lite) in place of the heavy cream.

Pie Pieces: Swap broken up store bought graham cracker crust, graham crackers or shortbread cookies for an easier ice cream.

Sugar-Free: Make this lower sugar by using sugar-free Cool Whip and sugar-free pudding mix.

Expert Tips

  • There is no substitute for heavy whipping cream if you’re making whipped cream. Be sure to beat it to stiff peaks (it doesn’t fold in on itself when you swipe a knife through it).
  • Be sure to use instant pudding.
  • Don’t mix the sweetened condensed milk into the whipped cream – be sure to fold it carefully.
  • Chopped bananas add a nice texture element to the ice cream, but you can leave them out if you prefer.

  1. I love this; like serious love this! I made a banana sorbet of sorts recently but this one looks outstanding. I want this now! So good! Great recipe! 🙂 Making this over the weekend for sure! 🙂

  2. I might have to check out Donner Lake, because it’s true Lake Tahoe can feel a little crowded. Although being in Carson Valley I’m closer to Lake Tahoe. Btw. I’m a new follower found you on Mom on Timeout. This ice cream looks delicious. I like the addition of the pudding and the face that it’s easy and doesn’t need the machine. I just discovered freezer ice creams and they are going to be a staple at my house. I’d love it if you stopped by my linky party to share this.

    1. An 8 ounce tub! Thanks for asking. I use fat-free, but you can use regular, or even sugar-free. 🙂

  3. WOW and WOW and WOW again! I didn’t think banana cream pie could get any better. I’ve been proved wrong, yet again. 🙂
