This boozy banana cream pie dip is exactly the dessert you are looking for! Just like your favorite pie with bananas but easier!
Banana Cream Pie is one of the most amazing desserts around! I mean, who can resist a creamy pudding dessert full of bananas and studded with toasted coconut? All the best banana cream pies have a flaky pie crust too!
How do you make Banana Cream Pie Dip?
To make a banana cream pie you need to cook the custard, making sure to temper the eggs just right so they don’t curdle, then you need to chill down the custard before layering it with bananas in the pie shell.
Lots of work, not that it is totally worth it, but who wants the same kind of dessert with a little less fuss?

One of the other amazing desserts around is banana pudding. That same creamy pudding consistency, bananas, and vanilla wafers too! Are you on team vanilla wafers “in” the banana pudding or “on the side?”
Some love the softening of the wafers and how they all mesh together. I prefer to keep my vanilla wafers on the side and use them to scoop up my banana pudding. Have you checked out my mind-blowing version of banana pudding?
Back to easy banana pudding desserts! This Boozy Banana Cream Pie Dip is super easy, can be served as a dessert or an appetizer, and has a hint of rum in it.
You might be wondering why I added coconut to the dip? I love a coconut cream pie, so does my father in law Larry, so when thinking about adding a little nip to the dip I went with Malibu Rum.
Coconut in banana cream pie dip?
The coconut rum adds another layer of flavor to the banana pudding and allows me to sprinkle some toasted coconut on top of the dip for texture. Just like spiking the eggnog with rum, my banana cream pie dip shines with a bit of rum.
If kids are coming to the party, you can make another batch and leave the rum out or just add it to half the recipe after you make it and serve in a “21 and over” serving bowl! Fun for all ages!
My boozy banana cream pie dip is easy to throw together thanks to the instant pudding. Just mix the prepared pudding, whipped topping, cream cheese, bananas, and the other few ingredients and you are ready to go! Just in time to start dipping those vanilla wafers in it!
