Tropical Cream Pie

Marjorie was searching through her motorhome galley one day to see what she could throw together for an impromptu potluck with some RVing friends. The result was this delicious pie. Her friends were not the only ones who liked her discovery; it was one of the three winning recipes at the Northern California State Samboree Cook-off.


 1 box 8-ounce container whipped topping (Marjorie prefers La Creme™)
 1 package (3 ounces) orange flavored gelatin
 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
 1 can (15 1/2 ounces) pineapple tidbits, drained
 1 large banana, sliced
 1 9-inch prepared graham cracker crust
 Mint leaves or chocolate curls for garnish


Let whipped topping thaw for half an hour in its own container. Turn into medium mixing bowl and whip with a fork until the topping is fluffy and free of lumps. Slowly add dry gelatin to topping, beating continuously until the gelatin is mostly dissolved. Add oranges, pineapple, and banana; stir to distribute evenly. Pour into crust and chill 1 hour in freezer or until firmly set. Garnish with mint or chocolate.

Serves: 4 to 6

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
