Banana Ice Cream Pie

A local grocery store chain had introduced a limited edition ice cream that I had fallen in love with. After a three-month love affair, Kroger pulled their banana cream pie ice cream and replaced it with carrot cake instead. I was devastated. It left me with no other option than to get creative in the kitchen. For this recipe you will need:

2 Cups of milk

1 3/4 cups of sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon vanilla

4 cups of whipping cream

1 box of instant banana pudding mix

2 cups half & half

3 mashed ripe bananas

Directions:

Scald milk until bubbles begin to form around the edge of the pan. Remove from heat, then add sugar and salt. Stir until they are dissolved. Next; stir in half & half, vanilla, pudding mix, and whipping cream. Add mashed bananas and nuts if desired.

I used a Nila Wafer ready-made pie crust to pour the ice cream mixture into. After pouring in the mixture, I put the lid on the pie and froze it for 12 hours. If you are in a hurry you can use an ice cream maker and then spread the ice cream over the pie crust. To garnish add chopped walnuts, chocolate syrup, and fresh mint.

This dessert will be a hit for all occasions. The taste is out of this world!

When Was Your Last Piece Of Humble Pie?

Humble pie is the hardest piece of pie to eat. No sooner than we think we are: above something or someone, better than something or someone, don’t need something or someone …. we are given our first slice.

Humble pie must be chewed slowly, and is often washed down with  grateful juice.

(Grateful juice is also known as an attitude of gratitude energy drink.)  

The grateful juice tracer is crucial to prevent future pieces of humble pie from being served. Grateful juice can be found anywhere. To find it we must look around and see what we have to be thankful for.

WARNING: Humble pie can be crippling, and must be taken seriously!

As that piece of humble pie enters the body it begins to expose one’s insides. It rotates around the heart and soul for quite some time before entering the digestive tract. Humble pie can take weeks, months, and possibly years to digest. It varies from person to person and bite by bite.

For some lucky ones who indulge in a piece of humble pie, it will digest instantly. Some will only need a bite while others will need to eat the entire pie.

Of course there will always be some people who will eat all of the pies in the bakery and soon-after head to the next bakery. The engorge themselves because they just can’t taste the lessons. 

Beware of humble pie! It is often served following statements such as:

I would never _____

I could never ______

I have never ______

You could never _________

You will never ________

You can’t _________

You won’t ________

They always _________

They never _________

I wish I _________

Beware filling in the blanks above and when forming any sentences that begin with such words.

Humble pie is frightening  and is typically not the most appetizing dessert. It can be bitter and sour. When digested it can leave some feeling weak, vulnerable, and helpless.

At times humble pie can take lives but in time it will restore many lives. It takes hearts  and it gives hearts. It simply depends on how we digest  it. 

If digested properly humble pie can and will improve eyesight. Humble pie has been known to cure blindness in most cases.

Always keep your grateful juice handy to prevent future occurrences with humble pie. To date, the grateful juice is the only preventative measure that can be taken.

Just as humble pie has no expiration date, neither does the grateful juice. So drink it often!

Have you eaten a piece of humble pie lately?
