Minions Banana Song

Of course, I would like to share a banana recipe from one of my favorite places to eat in Atlanta ..... Buckhead Diner.  I love their White Chocolate Banana Cream Pie!  So yummy!  And Buckhead Diner is where I met Sir Elton John!!  
Well, I didn't exactly meet him (although he really wanted to meet me!) because I was too shy.  
Ok, I just saw him there.  
Geez!  Can't you people at least let me dream!
