Banana Dulce de Leche Pie

Recipe By Tessa Arias
November 16th, 2015

Banana Dulce de Leche Pie has an easy graham cracker crust topped with dulce de leche, bananas, a cream filling and is topped with cinnamon whipped cream.

Banana Dulce de Leche Pie - Out of this world!!

Tessa's Recipe Rundown...

Taste: Oh so much more flavorful than your typical banana pie!
Texture: Ridiculously rich, creamy, and smooth. The graham cracker crust adds just enough crunch to balance it out.
Ease: Honestly I think the hardest part of this recipe is cutting nice neat slices. Does slicing pie or cake stress anyone else out? I found popping the pie in the freezer for a bit before slicing makes it much easier. I also simplified the recipe by using a graham cracker crust instead of a pastry crust.
Appearance: Gorgeous! Garnishing with bananas and dulce de leche allows your guests to whet their appetite just by looking at the pie.
Pros: Pure deliciousness.
Cons: None, except once the pie is topped with whipped cream it needs to be served soon. Before that it should last in the fridge so you can prepare ahead!
Would I make this again? Oh yes. Maybe I’ll add a bit of chocolate next time 😉

Banana Dulce de Leche Pie

With all the pies in the world sometimes banana seems a bit neglected.

I almost always forget about banana pie. I mean, pretty much all pie is delightful. Even savory! But some of the “classics” can be so overdone or so often done poorly that we forget how good they can actually be. Raise your hand if the idea of a cream pie only conjures up images of clowns smashing pies in their faces. Creepy. That’s why I had to toss in a little updated twist to your typical banana cream pie.

Banana Dulce de Leche Pie

This recipe takes full advantage of the rich caramelized flavor of dulce de leche. It can now be found canned at nearly any grocery store in the Latin foods aisle or in the baking aisle. One of my all-time favorite flavor combinations is banana and dulce de leche so to have the two exist together in a pie is perfection. Mmm mm. I hope you’ll give the recipe a try soon!

    Hi Tessa! This recipe looks wonderful. I’m thinking of making this but not putting the whipped cream and instead replacing the dulce de leche with a cinnamon glaze. What do you think? I know that the pie will probably be a lot less taller so I would have to reduce the size of the crust right? By how much do you think I should reduce it?

    Not sure what went wrong. Top of pie turned out good but the first layer of dulce de le he was liquid when I took it out of refrigerator. Very messy and not pretty
