Easy Chocolate Banana Pie

I don't know about you, but I have been looking for recipes to make when I have some extra bananas.  When my son was home, that was never the case, we never had any leftover.  Since my daughter and I were sick a couple of months ago, he has been quarantining with his dad. Now it is not uncommon to have a few extra bananas that need to be used up.  We also had something to celebrate this week. My daughter got her first job!  I wanted to do something special, but yet low key for her.  She was thrilled when I told her I made her a pie. 

I had most of the ingredients on hand, just had to pick up the crust and whipped topping.  

You will need:

graham cracker crust 
1-2 bananas 
small box banana pudding
small box chocolate pudding 
1 3/4 cup milk 
1 cup sour cream 
chocolate chips (optional) 

Slice the banana, and lay on the crust.  I used 1 1/2 small bananas. 

In a mixing bowl, mix both boxes of pudding, milk and sour cream together.

It turns into a yummy chocolate mousse. Seriously, it could be dessert on it's own, but we are going to add it to the pie. 

But first I  wanted to up to the chocolate factor, and added some chocolate chips.  I did not measure, just poured in what looked like a good amount. 

Add the pudding mixture to the pie

Carefully smooth it out

You will not need the entire container of whip cream, but add about 1/3 to 1/2 and spread over the pie. I added a chocolate heart of chocolate chips. Chill for about an hour. 

The end results were a delicious, easy to make pie.  Enjoy!
