Cut one banana and place in bottom of baked pie shell. Mix 1 small pckg. of Jello vanilla instant pie filling and prepare as usual, stirring one minute. Add 2 cups of vanilla ice cream, slightly softened. Mix until smooth. Pour into pie shell and top with whip cream before serving. Chill 1-3 hours.
She likes to add her bananas to the top of the pie instead of the bottom. That way they don't get mushy if you don't eat it right away. Another variation is to add a few frozen raspberries to the top of the pie along with the bananas.
If you want coconut cream pie, just brown some coconut and sprinkle it on top or mix plain coconut in as you blend the ingredients.
