When I think of banana cream pie, I am instantly transported back to 1991 and my high school cafeteria.

Banana cream pie day was usually on Wednesdays, and I don’t think I’ve had a slice since those days, because I realized what went into the pie to make it “cream.” I  have  pretty much have stayed away since.

Fast forward 20 years, and I devised a pretty easy banana cream pie fix that isn’t too bad for you and is an easy treat. The best part is you only need two ingredients.

I pretty much always have frozen bananas on hand, and for some reason one day, I decided to add light coconut milk to my grocery order. It turns out, the two marry well when blended at high speeds. I hope you enjoy this idea!
