Banana cream pies are rich, sweet, and decadent. They manage to get the already delicious and rich banana, and then make it even richer and thicker with the addition of cream filling, all lovingly held together in a crunchy graham cracker crust.
While bananas are considered a fixture at most places you can buy food today, they were considered exotic until the end of the 1800s. Today, bananas are the most eaten fruit in the United States- and banana cream pies definitely help to rack those numbers up!
If you can’t get enough of bananas or banana cream pie, this recipe will help you enable and indulge your need for this delicious dessert. Banana cream pie made into a dip may seem, well…bananas, but at the same time it’s actually the perfect thing to dip all your sweet treats into when they’re just a little on the dry side.
There are salsas and hummus for chips and bread, why not sweets? The recipe uses a base of banana pudding to keep the rich banana flavor, then thickens it with some cream cheese and thawed whipped topping to give it structure and richness.
Try dipping some extra-crunchy cookies or wafers for a hint of banana in your bite!
