This isn't fancy, but it hits the spot and is sure to please anyone from one to 100.
- 1 pre-baked or graham cracker crust
- 1 package of instant chocolate pudding, prepared to the pie specifications*
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/2 c. whipping cream or 1 1/2 c. prepared whipped topping
Cut the bananas into 1/4" slices, toss them with a squeeze or lemon juice or some fresh fruit preserver. Layer the pie crust with all but a few of the sliced banana pieces. Pour the prepared chocolate pudding mix into the crust.
Whip the cream until it is fluffy and holds a stiff peak. Top the pie with the whipped cream and garnish with the remaining banana pieces. If you are left with a spare moment you can garnish the pie with a few shavings of chocolate.
Refrigerate the pie until firm. If you used the instant pudding it will take less than ten minutes for this to set!
**I use the jello instant pudding.
