Graham cracker crust, filled with a vanilla custard and bananas, chilled then topped with fresh strawberries before serving. Beautiful presentation and so scrumptious!
I know … I have been posting a lot of strawberry recipes lately. How can I not? The strawberries have been SO GOOD! We just can’t get enough of them this time of year.
When browsing my assigned page for Secret Recipe Club this month, Well Dined, this Strawberry Banana Cream Pie just leaped out at me! Oh, sure, there are TONS of other things that I could have made; like this Greek Style Zucchini Salad or these Salty Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies.
This isn’t the first time I have been assigned Sarah’s blog. Back in November, I made her recipe for S’Mores Treats for a Holiday Baking theme. Sarah is an avid home cook, and also reviews restaurants on her blog, Well Dined. She cooks and bakes more on the healthy side, and you will find some tasty seafood dishes on her blog, which I love, like this Lemon Ricotta Pasta with Seared Scallops.
This pie was so delicious! It had a very subtle banana taste, as the custard is vanilla flavored and banana slices are layered in between. The crust is made from graham crackers, and it has a light cinnamon flavor. Topped with strawberries in a “spoke pattern,” right before serving. Isn’t the presentation beautiful?
I love that bright little heart-shaped strawberry in the middle!
- 1 1/2 cups finely ground graham cracker crumbs
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 6 Tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 1/2 cups milk
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1 egg
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, cut in pieces
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

- 1 pint small strawberries, sliced (about two cups)
I had vanilla graham crackers on hand, so I used them for the crust. I will be doing that again! GREAT flavor!
