My four year old has always loved pie. Or maybe it’s the idea of pie that he likes. He did refer to ice cream as pie when he was a toddler after all.
But for some reason, earlier this week, he got a major hankering for a strawberry banana pie. Although I think if he’d realized the strawberry banana isn’t the kind of pie you bake, he would have asked for something else. Apparently, he mostly just wanted to push buttons on the oven.
After about the tenth time he asked for pie, I finally agreed to do it, but to be honest, I didn’t want to put a lot of work into it.
You know how it is. It’s a hot day, you’ve already cooked two meals and you’re working on the third, and you’re tired of washing dishes. So you go for something that doesn’t heat the kitchen up.
Coconut no-bake pie crust, sliced strawberries, bananas, jello, and that’s it.
Easy Strawberry-Banana Pie
Super Easy Strawberry-Banana Pie
- Press pie crust into a nine inch pie plate, and refrigerate
- Heat one cup of water to almost boiling
- Stir in dry jello
- Add remaining cup of cool water
- Refrigerate until cool (this is so that the jello doesn’t melt the coconut oil in your pie crust and leak through)
- Slice strawberries as desired – I sliced mine about 1/4 inch thick because I wanted them to lay in there pretty tight and have more fruit and less jello.
- Slice banans
- Remove pie crust from refrigerator and arrange fruit inside
- Pour jello over the top and place back into the fridge
- Chill until set – at least two hours.
