Nobody here can figure out how Mi Tierra--the new supermarket just a short walk from the office--stays in business given their ridiculously low prices. But we don't argue; rather, we just started buying 10 pound cases of bananas for $1.99, and very quickly our office had consumed thirty pounds of bananas in two days.

Of course, the prices couldn't stay like this. Soon after, the supermarket changed the price to $1.75 per case, and we quickly bought more. By the time we carried in our 40th pound of bananas, we needed to find more ways to utilize the fruit than just straight for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Needless to say, our first idea to use them as backscratchers (see picture 1) failed, as did our attempt to rob Potenco (picture 2). But then T3h_Muffinator and I decided to make a banana chocolate pudding pie, and it was a great success.

Step 1: Ingredients

For the banana mixture, you'll need:

4 Bananas
Substitute and add spices as you wish.

For the pudding, you'll need:

1 Pack of Instant Pudding

For the rest of the pie, you'll need:
A pie crust (pre-bought for us lazy folks) or one of your own
Graham crackers or Vanilla wafers
Whipped Cream
Another banana
Love bananas & chocolate. Thanks for a great pie recipe!
Banana + Pudding = Tasty Goodness<br/>but,<br/>Banana + Pudding + CHOCOLATE + the word &quot;PIE&quot; Makes it the BEST ever deSSert in TeH Wurld!!<br/><br/>Nice job on this!<br/>
awesome, but a little rich! super easy, I just put in the refig. with foil overnight it it cut up perfectly the next day.
3-1/2 out of 5 Stars Hi All, Well I finally made this doozy. I have to say it looked better on the web than on my dish. It is kinda' a white trash special. If you make this I would suggest several tips. 1. Cook the pie shell so that it doesn't turn into soggy goo. 2. We added pecans other wise the texture is too monotonous. 3. I would suggest putting the pie in the freezer for the last 30-60 minutes to really get it to gel/harden.
i'm glad you made this pie--that's exciting for me. i did refrigerate for a long time (overnight), so freezing would probably speed up that process. and i also like your idea for pecans or something to break up the texture--a very good idea. -joshf
Awwwwww your bananas are so cheap. I have to pay the ridiculous price of $0.70/lbs...
And 5 stars!
That looks so f**king good! I will try that someday! 1+ vote!!!
I will totally have to try this! Probably today :] good find!!!
Mmmm 5 stars
Looks delicious! I'm going to do this later with a chocolate meringue on top!
Looks pretty awesome. Although, what if you made pudding from that banana sludge rather than milk? <sub><sup><em>PROBABLY PURE AWESOMENESS!!!</em></sup></sub><br/>
I think you just like crushing vanilla wafers. You add them to everything now, don't you? Oh well. Yummy results! :D And I miss Mi Tierra terribly. I don't have anything like it nearby!
