Every visit to the grocery store is a tough task to do when you have different cravings from each member of the family. One in particular is that of my husband. I always cringe when my husband starts off the conversation with, “You know what I’ve been craving?” Inevitably it’s something like double stuffed Oreos, strawberry Jell-O, or chocolate milk.
In other words, junk. Hardly anything healthy and for a man his age, it wasn’t the best of cravings. Once, as I was heading out the door to the market, I asked what he wanted and as expected, nothing healthy. He replied with “Banana pudding.”
In the grocery store aisle, I stood scanning the wall of instant pudding in front of me. As easy as it may be to whisk milk into a dubious powdery substance, it’s not the best of picks.
Instead, there are better alternatives and one in particular is the banana itself. Those delicious fruits are as healthy as they come and they just like you would know, are happy fruits. And don’t worry, the family isn’t getting servings of just banana only. Through the Grandma’s recipe book, I was able to discover the banana cream pie and it was instantly a no-brainer.
It had everything. A vintage theme, healthy and delicious flavor, a tasty mix of the best fruit and best pastry (banana was a personal favorite and so was the pie!). This made me even more determined to master this recipe and produce a dream dessert. TheThe result is a vintage banana cream pie that is thoroughly modern and so easy to throw together. Cheat code for creating the perfect cool, creamy dessert for a late summer evening.
As you would expect, it’s an instant hit with the family and it will become a regular in the family dessert menu. Friendly tip though, serve the pie on the day it’s made, otherwise the bananas will discolor.
