Can I get the health benefits of bananas by eating banana creme pie?


Q. Are the benefits of eating bananas lost in such things as banana creme pie?


A. Cream pies are made many different ways; however two things they share in common are fat and sugar. If the pie contains actual chunks of banana and not processed banana pudding then yes, you will get some vitamin C and potassium. But, the amount of sugar and fat in any pie makes it a food that we should only enjoy sometimes and not every day to prevent unwanted weight gain. For a healthier pie recipe that makes just four servings, try our Pocket Fruit Pies.
