It's National Banana Cream Pie Day❗

Everybody loves pie, especially Banana Cream Pie, and today I encourage you to have a small slice.😂🤣

According to, "banana cream pie is one of America's favorite all-time cream pies. Additionally, the traditional custard pie was modified into a recipe that resulted in the appetizing and flavorful banana cream pie. Dating back to the 19th century, banana cream pie found its way into recipe books. Today, recipes fill cookbooks and flood the internet for this yummy pie. In the 1950s, soldiers of the United States Armed Services ranked the banana cream pie as one of their favorites. 

Banana and cream complement so many other flavors that bakers enjoy experimenting in the kitchen. Both chocolate and peanut butter pair well with bananas. Many other ingredients do as well. It should come as no surprise when exploring recipes when you discover the sheer number and variety to choose from. It's a testament to just how much the banana cream pie is enjoyed and loved."

FUN FACT: Banana's are loaded with potassium so you get some vitamins in as well.
