Default Best type of potting soil?

I'm going to temporarily pot a 2 ft Dwarf Brasilian pup and am trying to figure out the best potting soil to use. I'm a bit confused because although I've read that one shouldn't use regular potting soil ( and I have SuperSoil), I've then read that you should use 50% peat moss, and next read that you shouldn't use peat moss at all because it tends to hold water too long. I have lots of peat moss, some coarse sand, and SuperSoil, as well as a yard full of clay like soil, and a bag of gypsum. Do bananas like a slightly acid soil (pH 6.5 or so)? What is the preferred mix in use by forum members?
