Banana Mallow Pie for HOME

"Having a place to go - is a home.
Having someone love you - is a family.
Having both is a blessing." ~ Donna Hedges

Hello friends and welcome to my HOME! What a week we've had since last week!
I'm sorry, I didn't get anything posted for HOME last week. We had a horrible blizzard and then another snow storm/ice storm this week which left many without power. I had a flu bug yesterday but feeling better today. We're still waiting for Spring to arrive.

Today I am sharing a pie recipe which I have shared before. This is easy and oh, so good!

Banana Mallow Pie

First you will need a pie crust. You can use your own or a store bought one. I prefer to make my own.

1 - 4 serving size package vanilla pudding & pie filling. {You may use instant or cooked pudding. I  have used both and they both turn out well.}
1-1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup whipping cream
2 bananas, sliced
Lemon juice

Prepare pie filling as directed on the box only using 1-3/4 cups milk. Cover with wax paper, chill.
Whip the cream until it forms peaks. Gently fold the whipped cream and marshmallows into the pudding.
Set aside while you dip the bananas in lemon juice and place them on the bottom of the pie crust.
Spread the filling over the bananas and chill.
Just before serving, whip up some sweetened cream and spread over the top of the filling. Garnish with sliced bananas and peanuts.
Peanuts are optional. Serve and enjoy!


Thank you for visiting today. Take care and have a wonderful rest of the week.

Lord, this humble house we'd keep
Sweet with play and calm with sleep.
Help us so that we may give
Beauty to the lives we live.
Let Thy beauty and Thy grace

Shine upon our dwelling place. ~ Edgar A. Guest

  1. This pie looks and sounds so delicious, Sandi. Thanks for sharing your recipe again. You have had quite a week of storms there (haven't we all?) and I'm glad that the weather seems to have changed for the better now and we are getting warmer temperatures and some melting. I hope this is it for snow storms this winter/spring don't you? Take care and I hope you have a great weekend. Pam

  2. Your pie looks yummy Sandi. I've got a pie in the oven now, a recipe from Angela at Tea with Friends for chocolate chip pecan. I'll share it for tea next week.
    We're fortunate to see the snow melting well now although the backyard is still covered in at least a foot. At the front that faces west, there are sprouts pushing out of the soil.
    Have a good weekend.

  3. Oh my Sandi, this looks delicious! I love banana cream pie so this is a 'must try'! Thanks so much for sharing it with SYC.

  4. Glad you are feeling better. The pie looks soooooo yummy. I found snowdrops poking out of the ice in the garden:) Did the happy dance. Have a great weekend.

  5. This pie reminds me of the pie my mom makes and my dad absolutely loves :) It looks very tasty, sweet Sandi!

    Happy weekend to you! Hugs

  6. yum I could really use a piece of that gorgeous pie right now.
    Can't believe you feel better after one day of the flu, it sure was a very mild case, I am always down a week or more.

  7. Sorry about your terrible storm and bout with the flu. Your pie looks delicious!

  8. Oh, that pie looks like a dream. I always say I should try the recipes I see. And I really should try this one. But, I'll wait for the boys to come home from college. DH and DS3 will only eat 1 slice, and then you-know-who will be faced with the rest of the pie, to eat or discard?

  9. Hi Sandi, I did hear that you guys got hit with an awful storm. Praying things have settled down and Spring is pushing through. No more winter!!!! Have a great weekend and btw, pie looks incredibly yummy!

  10. Your pie looks so very good.
    Thanks for the recipe.
    Hope you are still feeling good.


I am delighted to have you visit me and I read every comment. Please forgive me for not being able to visit you all as there are so many of you lovely bloggy friends now. I will visit as much as possible. I wish you a day filled with JOY! ~ Sandi
