There is nothing more decadent and delicious than adding a bit of smooth and velvety whipped cream to a piece of pie to give it that extra burst of sweetness.
Some pie recipes make use of whipped cream pretty prominently, and these tend to make for particularly delectable desserts.
With this in mind, we will be looking at fifteen recipes for pies that feature whipped cream that are not only super tasty choices of desserts, but are also relatively easy pies to make at home.
Let’s get started.
1. Chocolate Pudding Pie
This chocolate pudding pie is smothered with thick whipped cream as well as rich chocolate to create the ultimate comfort food. The whipped cream in this pie is particularly voluminous, and there is a trick to getting that consistency just right.
The thickness of the cream is made possible via the method in which the cream is set. If you want to achieve this voluminous cream with your chocolate pudding pie, you have to set the cream with dissolved gelatin.
This means that the cream won’t weep or deflate when it is child, leading to a thick and fluffy creamy topping.
2. Banana Cream Pie
The classic banana cream pie is also known for its tendency to include a fluffy whipped cream topping, and this recipe is no exception.
Sweetened whipped cream is added to the top of this delicious banana cream pie to add that extra burst of flavor and sweetness.
To make the pie, you will need cornstarch, eggs, milk, vanilla, salt, sugar, butter and-of course- bananas!

This tropical fruit and cream pie is one that is unique thanks to the combination of passionfruit and coconut, but it is also one that incorporates that all-important whipped cream in order to heighten the delicious sweetness.

For the coconut and passionfruit filling, you’ll need coconut cream, passion fruit pulp and curd, confectioners sugar, and heavy cream whereas for the crust, you’ll need unsalted butter, crushed and plain sweet biscuits, and toasted, desiccated coconut.
Add a dollop of whipped cream to the top and voilà!

The combination of tangy and juicy summer berries with buttery, vanilla-flavored pudding and vanilla wafers- along with that whipped cream- makes this particular recipe one that is sure to delight lovers of sweet treats.
