Chocolate Banana Cream pie is pretty much one of the best things that ever happened! It’s a mashup of banana cream pie, cheesecake, and chocolate pudding all in one luscious no bake dessert! You want this in your life, and it’s so easy you can have it with very little effort since it’s no bake!
The tire store in our little community is putting together a trip for community members to go bicycle in Northern Idaho. They invite anyone who wants to go. I talked my family into going with me…I love bicycling…not so much love from them! I’ve heard the scenery is gorgeous and it’s always fun to hang out with a great group of people. Getting a little, or lot, of exercise along the way won’t hurt either. I’m telling you I’m fired up to go ride my bike! I might change my mind after my bum gets super sore!
We will be biking about 150 miles in 4 days. We are packing our entire luggage on our bikes and those bike bags don’t hold very much “stuff”. I’ve been thinking about what to pack for a few weeks now but just started throwing it together today. We pretty much only have room for just the necessities; toothbrush, one change of clothes, jammies, undies!
CHOCOLATE BANANA CREAM PIE VIDEO
Today when I was packing the whole “I’m going to be wearing stretchy pants in front of 90 other people from my community” occured to me and I started to freak out just a bit! And at that moment I regretted that I ever met Chocolate Banana Cream Pie, and No Bake Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies, and Pizza Sliders! Those stretchy pants aren’t a bad thing when I’m home by myself but to have everyone see me in those things…I’m getting embarrassed already! Oh well, if they don’t like looking at my flab flabbing around in my stretchy pants they can look at the trees, or the road, or anything else! My best guess is if they happen to look once they won’t make that mistake again so I only need to be embarrased one time right?
You might find yourself developing a love hate relationship with this Chocolate Banana Cream Pie too! I truly loved it so much I couldn’t leave it alone! That’s really saying something coming form someone who rarely eats bananas. And honestly, I can’t blame the way I look in tight stretchy pants completely on this pie as there were a few other contributing factors too!
So my advice is love the chocolate banana cream pie, love the stretchy pants (they have more room and are more comfy anyway) and don’t worry about what you look like in those babies! This pie is worth every bite even if I my flab gets a little more squished in those stetchy pants!
