Apologies for not posting for a month – been a VERY busy time – Cooking with kids – Banana Cream Pie – SOOO easy!


Max with Bananas Little Farm July 2014I love bananas – we grow them on the Little farm – above is our farm manager with a large bunch just last week – and I love pie. This is the easiest dessert I have ever made. Enjoy!Banana Cream Pie Oct 2014


Banana Cream Pie


  • 1 large jello banana cream pudding mix
  • 2.5 cups of cold milk
  • 3 large bananas
  • One pre cooked pie crust ( Marie Callendars are great)
  • 2 cups of Cool Whip
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Vanilla wafers for decoration


  1. Bake the pie crust according to the directions for a one pie crust and let it cool completely
  2. Slice two of the bananas and separately mash one of them.
  3. Drizzle lemon juice over all bananas to prevent browning.
  4. Mix the pudding mix with 2.5 cups of cold milk and add the one mashed banana to the mix and mix well.
  5. Fold in the cool whip until creamy
  6. Place sliced bananas on the bottom of the cooked pie shell.
  7. Pour the creamy mix over the bananas into the shell.
  8. Decorate with crushed vanilla wafers – or if you prefer chocolate or caramel chips.
  9. Refrigerate for 3 hours minimum before serving.
  10. YUM!
