Rich, creamy and absolutely delicious – this is one dessert that you will definitely not be able to resist!! With the real taste of bananas and a delectably crunchy base it never fails to hit the mark.

I love my day job (really I do, it’s awesome) but the one thing that I always hate is when someone leaves. Especially when that someone is one of your, totally awesome, team and you know that you’re going to miss the vibes that they have bought to the workplace. In these dire circumstances that only way to cope is to make copious amounts of treat food and bring it into the office for everyone to indulge in.

Please welcome - Joe’s Banana Cream Pie. Joe we still miss you. And the sad truth is that Joe missed the banana cream pie. Whilst I thought the idea of trying out something new would be simply AWESOME, time was not on my side. Only starting on the Thursday night, the first attempt at a banana cream pie did not set in time to catch Joe before his departure.

Not that this was a problem for me – I totally enjoyed it. As did my weekend visitors and we made our daily quota of fruit and veg in one hit!

The new, improved, and sets in 4hrs recipe, was enjoyed by the rest of the work force on Monday afternoon - with the added bonus of the caramel sauce that I realised over the weekend would make the perfect topping!!!

Super easy to make – you really need nothing more than your blender and a bowl. So let’s get going! ;P
