I've really enjoyed the Avocado Key Lime Pie that I shared with you again, just recently. I was just making one the other day when I noticed the bananas sitting in my fruit basket. I wondered to myself if the same method that I was using for the Key Lime Pie wouldn't work for a Banana Pie. The way I usually make a banana cream pie is to slice bananas into the bottom of a crust and then pour pudding on top of that and add whipped cream. But, what I don't like is that if the pie isn't eaten quickly, the bananas might get brown and mushy and the pudding gets stiffer. (It didn't used to last that long around my house, but now that I don't have little kids at home, I have seen it happen.) The idea of the velvety smooth texture of the Key Lime Pie in the form of a banana pie just really appealed to me.
It worked! It was easy to make. I didn't have to cook up any pudding. I used a store crust instead of making it myself. (You totally could make it yourself though, I was just being lazy.) I added the cherries for color and a pop of extra flavor since this banana pie doesn't have the same pop of green color as the Key Lime. 1 caveat though. You need to let it set a little longer. You will notice that my slices could have set a little longer before I took pictures. But, we were in a hurry to try this out. The next day, everything was set perfectly!
Easter dinner is going to look a little different for most of us because of social distancing. This pie will be a simple little cheery dessert to add to your stay at home menu! I hope you enjoy it!
