    One of my very favorite pies is banana cream pie. My husband’s grandma makes banana cream pie for Thanksgiving every year (along with about a dozen other pies) and it’s always the kid’s favorite. I was shocked when I heard it was so simple to make!

    This banana cream pie recipe is so easy and if you love bananas, you are bound to love this pie too. It’s light, fluffy and full of delicious banana flavor. Plus it’s made with just 5 simple ingredients…one being a box of instant banana pudding mix. It honestly doesn’t get any easier than this banana cream pie with jello pudding!

    I dressed this banana cream pie up a little bit by piping on some homemade whipped cream with a large 1M tip. Then I added small dollops on the inside of the crust. I also garnished with some fresh banana slices too!
