Frozen Banana Pie

This pie is amazing!! Perfect for summer when your last 2 bananas have gotten to that awkward, ripened stage where they are just fine, but also just brown enough that no one wants to eat them.
There is no butter in this pie, requires ZERO baking, and has very few ingredients. It does, however, require some planning and thinking ahead. Not very good for last minute.
Makes 2 pies

You'll need:
1 Can Evaporated milk, chilled in the freezer for at least 2-3 hrs.
2 eggs
1 C. Sugar
2 Bananas, mashed
Juice of 2 lemons, (1 medium lemon yields about 3 tbls juice)
2 pkgs Graham crackers
Whip chilled milk until it will stand in peaks.
Beat egg, add sugar, beat until light and lemon colored, and mashed bananas, add salt and lemon juice. Stir into whipped milk. Crush 1 pkg graham crackers at a time and push dry crumbs into pie dish (NO Butter is added to graham crackers).
Gently pour banana milk mixture into pie crumbs and freeze.  I gave my pies 24 hrs to freeze.
This pie seriously tastes like a frozen banana smoothie! It is SO good! The mashed bananas sink to the bottom and soak the crumbs which is what helps the crumbs stick together! It's like magic!!!!
It does not require any thawing time in order to cut. I took mine out and cut it right away. It does melt quite quickly so it's not a frozen pie that can be left out for any length of time.

This was definitely a hit at our house and will definitely be made again soon!!!!
