    The Governor's Banana Cream Pie

    Source of Recipe

    JoAnna M. Lund

    Recipe Introduction

    I created this pie in honor of Governor Branstad when he appointed me to Iowa's Rural Health and Primary Care Committee. After the appointment, I asked for his favorite pie flavors and then created this just for him. But, it's soooo good. I'm sure he won't mind if I share it with you, too.

    List of Ingredients

    • 1 (6-Ounce) Keebler graham cracker pie crust
    • 2 cups sliced bananas (2 medium)
    • 1 (4-serving) package JELL-O sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix

    1. Place sliced bananas in pie crust. In a medium bowl, combine dry vanilla pudding mix, 2/3 cup dry milk powder and 1 1/3 cup water. Mix well using a wire whisk. Blend in vanilla extract.
