Lemon Tropic Layered Dessert Recipe @pinch

What a find! This silky sweet treat would be the perfect addition to any potluck or luncheon. The banana flavor is pretty prevalent in this easy-to-make dessert. If you're not a huge banana fan, cut the bananas in half to let the pineapple and lemon flavors shine a little brighter. My mother-in-law Mary made this several times. I love anything with lemon. She finally handed it to me a couple of years ago.
