    Will the bananas brown in a banana cream pie?  I was thinking of making it a couple of days ahead of time, and then topping with whipped cream and extra bananas right before serving.  Will this work?  Or do I have to make it the day of?

    yes they will.  When I make I usually puree with a bit of citric acid. Then I garnish with Bananna slices when served

    well if you are using banana in the layers it will only remain for 2-3 days,afterwards the banana will mostly get dark in color.
