Chocolate Banana Cream Pie
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling Cook: 5 min.
This is one of my family's favorite pies that I make. It's perfect as is. However, I have used fat free half&half instead of whipping cream and white Splenda Blenders instead of sugar (I don't know if it's still available in stores) and it turned out ok too. I love the semi-sweet chocolate because otherwise it would be too sweet for my taste. Also, I recommend using bananas that aren't too ripe, to keep it from being too sweet.
I have made this recipe for the last six years since I found it on Taste of Home Magazine. Everyone I'm the family absolutely loves it and I've never had a complaint about the chocolate!!!!
This wasn't exactly what I expected. The vanilla pudding came out great but the chocolate pudding didn't match the rest of the flavors. The semi-sweet seemed to really compete with the flavor of the bananas. I think I would use milk chocolate chips next time so the banana wasn't overpowered.
