I don’t know about you, but for me, November is all about the pies. Cream pies, fruit pies, ice cream pies – basically all the pies, all the time. If you stop and think about it for a second, pies are kind of the perfect food.

How to Make Banana Coconut Cream Pie

They can be sweet, they can be savory, they can be frozen or they can be served pipping hot. There are so many delicious options! Yet, everyone seems to ignore them until Thanksgiving rolls around. I. DON’T. GET. IT. Why are people not shouting from the rooftops about how much they love pies?!

Learn To Bake Coconut Cream Pie

But now that pie season is upon us, it’s time to stop talking and start baking. Last year I did an Extreme Pumpkin Pie, and the year before that was a Bourbon Chocolate Pecan – both Thanksgiving staples.

Best Quick and Easy Banana Pie

So this year, I decided to go down a more non-traditional path. That, and I have been promising my roommate a coconut based pie since her birthday…in May. I know what you are thinking…May was a LONG time ago. But better late than never.

Do It Yourself Banana Coconut Cream Pie

The pie I came up with is a hybrid of my two favorite cream pies – the coconut and the banana. The Coconut Banana Cream Pie (super original name…am I right?) is filled with creamy coconut custard, shredded coconut and banana slices and then topped off with a mountain of whipped cream, toasted coconut and more bananas. It is heavenly. And even more important…my roommate was very happy with me.

POV: My mental state at the moment.

Feeling a lootttt like a snowman trying to survive a winter in Southern CA. And it's not going very well. ⛄️

(If you want to see how well you are holding up, check out the list in my "OOTO" highlights" and see how many resonate).

I have talked to a lot of people in the last few weeks and it seems everyone is feeling off or unsettled or just freaking exhausted this winter. So I if you are feeling this way too, I want you to know that you are not alone.

For me, I have decided to take a little break. No social media or emails or working on lesson plans or budgets until January 2022. Because I just have nothing left.

So I hope everyone has a good end of their year (and I hope you spend it making ALL THE COOKIES).

Love and Sprinkles ❤️
