I was kind of surprised. All the freeze warning coming out of Florida and our local grocery store ran strawberries on sale from Florida. They were pretty good besides. Even though here in Upper Michigan it is way to early to be thinking about fresh berries the thought still gets me excited. Bananas and strawberries what a great combination. When I saw this recipe I just had to give it a try. This Strawberry Banana Cream Pie Recipe is just delicious. It is very easy to create, and does not require much prep time. The recipe says to let it set for a few hours. If you are in a rush it sets quickly allowing you to serve it much sooner. Enjoy
