Frozen Peanut Butter Pie

Yayyyyyy more frozen summer treats! The other day I mentioned I had a frozen pie coming up soon. Well here it is… Happy Monday!

No Bake Frozen Peanut Butter Pie

 

This is not your average boring pie, guys, this is a FROZEN peanut butter pie with a chocolate crust. How much yum can you have in one place?!? The best part? This scrumptious summer dessert is no bake! Cause really, who wants to turn their oven on when it’s 96+ outside? Yeah not me.

Frozen Peanut Butter Pie

This pie is ridiculously easy, requires just a few ingredients, and is oh-my-gosh-so-good. I don’t even like pie (gasp!) and I love this peanut butter pie! Probably because it’s cold and creamy so it tastes more like ice cream to me than a regular pie. When the heat wave hits and you’re craving something sweet, this frozen pie hits the spot!

Ingredients

  • 1 chocolate pie crust (usually found near the graham crackers in your grocery store)
  • 1 1/4 cups half and half or milk (I used fat free half and half)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 ounces cream cheese (I used fat free), softened
  • 1 8-ounce container frozen cool whip, thawed
  • optional: 1/2 cup peanuts roughly chopped (divided), chocolate shavings

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl beat half and half (or milk) with the sugar 1-2 minutes. Add vanilla and peanut butter and mix until smooth. Chill 30 minutes.

  2. Whip cream cheese until fluffy. Add cream cheese to chilled peanut butter mixture from Step 1. Add whipped cream and mix until smooth. (Optional: add 1/4 roughly chopped peanuts.) Pour mixture into pie crust. Freeze uncovered 4 hours or overnight. Top frozen pie with remaining chopped peanuts and chocolate shavings if desired. Transfer to fridge to thaw about 30 minutes before serving.

This is amazing Tiffany! Absolutely gorgeous and looks and sounds like the perfect summer dessert!

Peanut butter is a good way to beat anything 🙂 Love how it is chilled! Chilled pies are so much easier for me to cut! 🙂

Oh my, this looks incredible! Peanut butter and chocolate – my two favourite things!

    A gal after my own heart 😉 I can’t get enough of the two!! Especially when it’s in a frozen pie!!!

Yum! I think I need to make pie this week. 😉

Okay, so I don’t think I have ever commented on your blog but the last two recipes I clicked through from Foodgawker were both yours (the peanut chicken too). 🙂

it looks delicious!

I usually have whipping cream but not half n half. can I use a mixture of w cream and milk to simulate h n h? and it calls for 8 oz cool whip not 18 oz? Thanks

    You could potentially use the mixture of milk and whipping cream… I haven’t tried that before, so I can’t say for sure! I do recommend freezing, however 🙂
