Yummy, Yummy Banana Cream Pie!

Yesterday I went to the Farmers Market and a man was shouting,"Bag of Bananas-$1." Hello, I jumped right on that and bought 2 bags. Well to my surprise the bananas were pretty much ripened and about to go bad.

I knew that I had to make something with all these bananas and fast. Banana cream pie can first in my mind. Easy to make, no baking whatsoever and I made it in less then 15 minutes. So I thought I would post how I made it. I can't wait to have some tonight with my family.


Graham Cracker Pie Crust- I bought a premade pie crust.
Small Pudding Mix- I used banana cream but you can use vanilla or chocolate too.
2 cups of milk for the pudding mix
3 ripened medium sized bananas
1 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
Nilla wafers- to decorate

Add 2 cups of milk to the pudding mix and whisk for a few minutes. Put in the fridge for 5 minutes to thicken.

Slice up bananas

Add heavy cream and confectionery sugar together and turn on the beater until thick.

Nice Creamy consistency! Perfect and yummy too.

Time to layer pie!
Add a layer of pudding.

Add a layer of bananas. These bananas are so sweet.

Put a layer of whipped cream. I surrounded the edges with Nilla wafers and two in the middle for decoration. You can crumble them too and sprinkle on top.
Put in the fridge and let chill, then serve.
