Chocolate banana cream pie is a delicious combination of chocolate pudding pie and banana cream pie. Creamy and sweet, this easy pie recipe is perfect for any occasion.
I probably shouldn’t be typing this right now because at this minute, the tornado sirens are going off. Both boys are asleep in my bed and I have the weather radio on, so for right now, I feel OK. We have had hail 3 times today and after a stint I had in tornado position in the boy’s bathroom at school today, I am SO ready for this day to be over!
As my school year is wrapping up I wanted to pay tribute to someone who has been one of the most positive forces in my life this year. She is not the only one, mind you, but this post is about her and the chocolate banana cream pie I made last week, for her birthday!
My co-worker Betsy is one of the most compassionate, caring people you could ever know. When I had my tumor removed in January, she brought me not one, but TWO meals. I knew that while I was gone, the kids I care for during the day would be in very capable hands. She is a great mother and an awesome role model. I say this with respect as she is older than me…..well…about 14 months older. ????
Betsy and I did the Susan Komen 5K together last month and had a great time. She tried to prepare me for the overwhelming feelings I would experience being surrounded by all of these people. Survivors and their supporters. She was right, I will remember that forever.

But back to the chocolate banana cream pie.
I wanted to make a dessert for our “It’s your birthday so lets all bring in food and eat” day. I asked her what her favorites were. She told me she liked banana cream pie or chocolate pie. Well, I couldn’t decide, so I dug deep in my recipe box for an old favorite. Last time I made this (according to my notes) I soaked the bananas in rum before assembling the middle layer. Obviously I couldn’t do that this time. You know…because we were working….at a SCHOOL! Talk about a bad example!!
SO…. here is what I call Betsy’s Chocolate Banana Cream Pie recipe.
OK, OK…I admit this is NOT a good picture. This is the one I took at school before I cut it and we devoured it. I took 7 other pictures which were mysteriously erased…Hmm. BUT, you get the idea. ????
Give yourself 3 hours TOTAL to complete the recipe. Make the time, you won’t regret it. I hope you enjoy it!
