This is the best banana cream pie recipe, and it's easy to make. I got the recipe from the Our Best Bites cookbook. Every recipe I've tried from these ladies is really good. It makes 2 pies: one for you and one for a friend.
Banana Cream Pie
1 small box of instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup cold water
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 pint heavy whipping cream
2 graham cracker crusts (or you can use any of the crusts that you purchase: Oreo, Nilla Wafer, etc)
1/3 cup powdered sugar
In a medium bowl, combine the pudding mix with the water and milk. When well mixed, put in the fridge to set up for a few minutes. While it's chilling- in another bowl, whip the cream until soft peaks form. Fold 1/2 of the whipped cream into the pudding mixture. Put the filling back into the fridge while you slice the bananas into the bottom of the crusts. Pour the pudding mixture over the bananas, dividing it between the two pies. Mix the powdered sugar into the remaining whipped cream and divide it between the two pies and spread over the top. Place the clear plastic lids over the pies and refrigerate for several hours.
You can use this same recipe with chocolate pudding, omitting the bananas for delicious Chocolate Cream Pies:
