The Governor's Banana Cream Pie

The Governor's Banana Cream Pie

I created this pie in honor of Governor Branstad when he appointed me to Iowa's Rural Health and Primary Care Committee. After the appointment, I asked for his favorite pie flavors and then created this just for him. But, it's soooo good. I'm sure he won't mind if I share it with you, too.

Serves 8

1 (6-Ounce) Keebler graham cracker pie crust
2 cups sliced bananas (2 medium)
1 (4-serving) package JELL-O sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
1 1/3 cups Carnation nonfat dry milk powder *
2 1/3 cups water *
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (4-serving) package JELL-O sugar free instant banana cream pudding mix
2/3 cup Cool Whip Lite
1 tablespoon graham cracker crumbs (one 2 1/2-inch square)

Place sliced bananas in pie crust. In a medium bowl, combine dry vanilla pudding mix, 2/3 cup dry milk powder and 1 1/3 cup water. Mix well using a wire whisk. Blend in vanilla extract. Pour mixture evenly over bananas. Refrigerate while preparing topping. In a medium bowl, combine dry banana pudding mix, remaining 2/3 cup dry milk powder and remaining 1 cup water. Mix well using a wire whisk. Blend in Cool Whip Lite. Spread mixture evenly over vanilla layer. Evenly sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over top. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes. Cute into 8 pieces.
