My maternal grandfather (Grampa Bill) was in the WWII internment camps and didn’t have the luxury of receiving any dental care during that time. This unfortunately caused him to lose his teeth at an early age and he’s had to deal with wearing dentures for at least the entire time I’ve known him. He turned 92 last week, so we had a family dinner over the weekend. In his honor, I made a birthday dessert that he wouldn’t really have to chew – a no-bake banana cream pie. I’ll make one from scratch someday but it was a crazy weekend, so I made up an easy no-bake version.
I bought a graham cracker crust, instant vanilla pudding, and lots of bananas. After slicing the bananas and laying them out on the bottom of the crust, I smothered them with the prepared pudding and let it set in the fridge for about 3 hours. Once set, I just added some more banana slices on top and added whipped cream. Easy!
As you can see from the photo below, it turned into a sloppy mess once I sliced it… albeit, a tasty sloppy mess!
