A wonderful banana cream pie! The vanilla pudding recipe is delicious enough to stand alone. It's simple to make and definitely worth the little extra work. I did cut the sugar to 1/4 cup. That made it perfect for us. This recipe will be a special occasion standard at our home!

This turned out beautifully! It was a big hit, and so simple. I'd take this over a store bought banana cream pie any day since it tastes good and I know it was low-fat. I made a graham cracker crust as the base. I used the vanilla pudding recipe as directed, and with that I cut the sugar to 1/4 cup and used low fat milk (I forgot to add the butter at the last step and didn't miss it at all). For the whipped cream, I added a dash of vanilla extract and a Tbs of powdered sugar to amp the flavor a bit.

very good , pretty easy. yes, use less sugar ( i used 1/4 plus 1 tsp). also did with 2% milk and slightly more cornstarch. great way to use up over-ripe bananas. delish!
