    Looks good!

    Just wondering, do you have tips on how to make whipped cream? whenever i try to make some, it always seems to just melt. How do you make yours? thanks!

      It’s actually more convenient for me to use whipped cream in canisters so I don’t have leftovers.

      But if you like to whip your own cream, chill the cream then whip in a chilled bowl. Also, place the chilled bowl over a larger bowl with lots of ice.

    I was just about to check your website for ideas for bananas since we bought so much the other day. Will definitely make this tonight but might use Oreo cookies and dulce de leche since they’re all I have in the pantry at the moment.
    Nice presentation. Thanks Connie!

    Oh! it’s like banana cream pie…..maybe I can use crushed graham for the base instead and add chopped toasted walnuts on top for some crunch!Thanks Ms. Connie!

  4. Girl, you’re quick! Love the idea of coconut in the mix. :-)

    Hi Connie, I am just confused. What’s the difference between “whipping” and whipped cream”? Because,whenever I say “whipping cream”, my husband and daughter laugh at me and say “Mom, it is not whipping cream, it’s whipped cream”.

    • Connie says:

      Whipping cream is thick cream than CAN BE whipped so that it doubles in volume. They come in cans or cartons.

      Whipped cream is thick cream that has already been whipped. Usually comes in aerosol canisters.

    Hi. Is toasted coconut the same as dessicated coconut? Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes. They make ordinary meal times into special ones!
