Perfectly creamy, full of flavor and so easy to make. Can’t help but wonder how it would taste with peanut butter pudding!

I’m not a huge fan of bananas but do on occasion get a hankering for banana cream pie. This is my go-to in those instances. This pie is so simple to prepare and delicious.

Easy and Delicious! I do a larger pie crust and use TWO puddings and double the milk. I also Toast Coconut for the top of the pie just to bring it over the “top!!”
