Happy Pi Day, friends! Huh? “Don’t you mean pie?” Well, yes … and no. Pi is the Greek symbol that is used to represent the number you get when you divide the circumference of a circle by its diameter. No matter how big or small the circle is, that ratio is always pi. When you actually calculate what pi is, you get a number starts with 3.1415 and goes on and on without repeating! Since today’s date is 3/14/15 (get it? Pi = 3.1415), I thought it was only appropriate that we celebrate Pi Day with PIE!! Well, pie dip, that is. Fluffy, creamy banana cream pie dip!
Banana Cream Pie Dip
Surely this makes you want to celebrate, yes? And now that the pesky math lesson is out of the way, let’s talk pie. And dip. And banana cream pie dip! Three ingredients, folks. That is all you need to make this fluffy, wanna-eat-it-with-a-spoon dip.
- One small box instant banana pudding & pie mix
- One cup cold milk
- One small tub of Cool Whip (thawed)
- Butter cookies (vanilla wafers and banana chips for dipping)
- With a whisk or hand mixer, blend pudding mix and cold milk.
- Allow to set for about a minute.
- On the lowest setting of your mixer, or by hand, gently fold in the Cool Whip and mix just until combined.
- Don’t over mix or the dip will break down and become watery.
- Place in serving bowl and refrigerate until serving.
- Serve with butter cookies, vanilla wafers and banana chips.
And let me tell you, it is nearly impossible to decide which of the delicious dippers is your favorite. Those classic flower shaped butter cookies (see also Easy Spring Flower Cookies) are just.so.good! Vanilla wafers are banana pudding’s BFF so those are a shoo in! And crispy banana chips just double the banana flavor. I think I’ve found the dipper trifecta!
