Luscious Banana Pie

So I realize that we have not posted for a while.  So sorry about has been a crazy few weeks!!!! 

This banana pie is not very fact, its not really a banana cream pie....even though there are banana's and cream in the recipe.  It is a twist on the original....and quite possibly the most wonderful twist ever invented.  Hope you enjoy!!!

Luscious Banana Pie 
{I also forgot to take pics the pie......but just trust me...its amazing!!!!}


3 bananas, sliced
1 tin of sweetened condensed milk
2 cups whipping cream, whipped until there are peaks (add powdered sugar and vanilla for a blissfully sweet taste!)
1 package graham crackers
1 stick of butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 small bar of chocolate {i used a few hershey kisses that I had in the cupboard}

Your first step can be done way ahead of time (at least hours but can be as much as months before). Remove the label on the condensed milk and submerge the unopened can in pot of water. Cover and boil for 2.5 hours. Warning: Be sure to keep the can covered by water at all times!!After the time has passed, take pot off the stove and allow the can to cool.

To make the crust 
  • Grind up graham crackers in food processor.
  • Melt stick of butter in microwave and pour into crumb mixture.
  • Blend until you have a moist sand mixture.
  • Smooth wet crumbs into pie plate to make a crust.
  • Bake at 350F for 10 minutes.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Cut up bananas into slices and lay into your crust. It doesn't matter how you arrange them. 
  • Open the can of sweetened condensed milk (now a caramel sauce) (WARNING: It will splatter when you open the can, so do it in a sink!!!) 
  • Spread whipped cream over the pie. 
  • Grate chocolate on top (optional)
  • Put in fridge to set for at least 1 hour
