Creamy, dreamy and straight up bananaramic, Banana Fana Fo Fana
is banana cream pie ala modern
It's a cinch almost to a sinful degree. See? (Click to view video.)
With this outrageously easy version, why make banana cream pie the old-fashioned way evah again?
The secret weapon is Nature Valley Granola Thins. Crunch 'em up and they make a great base for this banana dessert. (I used my mini food processor and got 'er done in seconds.)
No butter, no mixing, no pressing into a pie pan. Crunch 'em up. That's it.
Then slice up yer naners:
And whip up some cream with a bit o' sugar. Nom:
And the coup d'etat -- cooked vanilla pudding (from a box, of course), still warm and right outta the pan. Nom twice.
As soon as that pudding's ready, get 4 plates and 4 mouths ready, then assemble the desserts in seconds flat. Ready?
- Granola base
- Banana slices
- Warm pudding
- Whipped cream
- Granola sprinkles
There's nothing quite like this -- warm flowy sweet vanilla pudding draped over a layer of fresh banana slices and crunchy granola:Just do it!
