    I live in Sydney, Australia and I love your recipes, but there are some ingredients that we can't purchase here. Like for instance the graham crackers, frozen whipped topping and banana pudding. What can I use in place of these ingredients? I know I can replace the crackers with another type of sweet coffee biscuit, but can I use regular thickened cream, whipped for the frozen seeing that you have to thaw this topping. And as for the pudding mix we can only get vanilla and chocolate, so I feel sure I could use a vanilla pudding even if it doesn't have quite the same depth of flavour as a banana pudding. I really just want to reassure myself on these replacements. Other than these queries I'd like to congratulate you beautiful girls on a wonderful recipe site. Thank you.
    • Hi Josephine, this will be tricky without all of the ingredients available to you in Australia. You could use crushed vanilla wafers in place of the graham crackers (if you have those). Your vanilla pudding would be your best bet in place of the banana pudding. You could try using thickened cream in place of the cool whip topping. You may need to sweeten it a little with sugar. I hope this all works for you. We have only made this as directed on the recipe. Thanks for visiting our blog from Down Under! :)

        I am from ireland and what I use instead of graham crackers is digestive buscuits. For the banana pudding, packet of angel delight banana flavour. Whipped topping would be something like Birds dream Topping which also comes in a pack. My friends who were living in aurstralia were normally able to pick these up in an irish or english shop over there. I hope this helps and good luck with the pie :)

      My daughter has been in Sydney for a year and she has said such things. Not sure about there, but you can buy a little bottle of banana flavoring just like you'd buy vanilla. Not sure if you can find that there but maybe a friend will come to visit and bring you some! I used to use it when I made syrup for pancakes.

    This has become a favorite with my friends, they think it's better than Marie calendars! It's not really a cheesecake consistency more just banana cream pie, and I use vanilla wafers for the crust instead of graham crackers and it's sooooo amazing! Love love love and especially like that you can put his together the night before.
    • This is the Jello pudding mix that we use. It comes in a 3.4 ounce box. The 3.4 ounce box says it makes 4 (1/2 cup) servings. The 5.1 ounce box makes 6 (1/2 cup) servings. So if all you can find is the 5.1 ounce box, use 2/3 of the package.
