mangia mondays 66: peanut butter, banana & nutella icebox pie

hello, friends!
welcome to
a blog hop i co-host each week
with the superb
lisa from shine your light

this week i'm sharing
peanut butter, banana & nutella icebox pie

1 pkg chocolate sandwich cookies, cream removed
6 TBS butter, melted
1 C heavy whipping cream
1 C smooth peanut butter
8 oz cream cheese
1 1/2 C powdered sugar
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon juice
3 bananas, sliced

1. blend chocolate cookies in a food processor or blender until fine crumbs are formed. combine with melted butter & transfer to a large pie pan. press crust firmly into an even layer over bottom & sides of the pie pan. set aside in the freezer while you prepare the filling.

2. whip the heavy cream until light, fluffy, & stiff peaks have formed. transfer to a small bowl & set aside in the refrigerator.

3. beat peanut butter & cream cheese until combined & smooth. gradually beat in the powdered sugar until smooth, then add the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla & lemon juice. beat until well combined. set aside.

4. spread a layer of nutella over the bottom of the crust & top with the bananas.

5. fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture 1/3 at a time. pour the mixture over the bananas & spread evenly. return to the freezer to set up for an hour or so, then transfer to the refrigerator.

{this pie will *melt* quickly in the summer if not kept VERY cold. :)
it was delicious right out of the freezer, but a little tough to cut!}

this may be one of our new favorite summertime desserts.
it's easy to assemble
{& you can make it even easier by using a
pre-made crust & whipped topping!}
& SUPER delicious.
