A homemade banana cream pie is a great pick me up at the end of a long work day or a great welcome for visiting family and friends. When you think about it banana cream pie is good for you. Take the crust for example; it is practically a member in good standing in the bread food group. Next is the cream which is made out of milk and eggs; the milk and meat food groups. And of course there are the bananas which are a proud member of the fruit group and are a good source of the necessary nutrient, potassium. Then to top all this goodness off is the meringue topping which is made of egg whites. We all know how eating egg whites are supposed to be better for us. Alas, all of this talking about a homemade banana cream pie is calling me to the kitchen to make one from scratch.
