5 Ingredient Banana Cream Pie
1. Pie crust: You can use a store-bought or homemade pie crust for this recipe. I usually buy a premade crust to stick with the easy theme. A graham cracker crust or nilla wafer crust would also taste delicious. 2. Instant banana pudding: Using the instant banana cream pudding mix is what makes this recipe so simple. No cooking on the stovetop required. Just simply mix with milk and let set! 3. Milk: Make sure to use either whole milk or 2% milk. Other varieties like skim, almond or soy won’t thicken the pudding enough. 4. Cool whip: This adds a light and fluffy component to the filling. Just make sure it’s thawed before mixing it in. If you’re feeling up to it, you can even make homemade cool whip or substitute with homemade whipped cream. 5. Bananas: Look for bananas that are ripe with a few brown spots (but not overly brown). These will have the best sweet flavor and a soft yet sturdy texture.

How long does Banana Cream Pie last?
Okay, some people will tell you it lasts in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Thebananas will turn brown about a day after you cut into the pie.So, yes! You can make this banana cream pie ahead of time. But I wouldn’t cutinto it until you are ready to serve it.If you do have leftover pieces, be sure to cover the pie with aluminum foil,or plastic wrap. It will still taste great, just won’t be as attractive.”
