Chocolate Chip Coconut Banana Cream Pie
This recipe is bananas… B-A-N-A-N-A- S! If you’re looking for a fun twist to the typical banana cream pie, you’re in the perfect place. We blended our Dark Chocolate Chip Coconut Perfect Bar to make the crust and used all dairy-free ingredients like coconut cream, oat milk and coconut whipped cream to fill this Banana Cream Pie with only plant-based goodness. Don’t worry about firing up the oven for dessert – give this recipe a try for a perfectly chilled plant-based treat.
- 5 Dark Chocolate Coconut Perfect Bars
- 5.5 oz Chocolate Wafer Cookies
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- Pinch sea salt
- ¼ cup potato starch
- ¼ cup sugar
- ¼ tsp sea salt
- 2 cups oat milk
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 small banana, gently mashed
- 1 cup chilled coconut cream (from a can of coconut cream)
Pie Layering + Topping:
- 3 to 4 bananas, sliced
- 2 cups store-bought whipped coconut cream
- In the bowl of a food processor, process the perfect bars, chocolate cookies, coconut oil, and salt until fine crumbs are formed. Press the crumbs evenly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate to form a solid crust. Bake for 12 minutes until lightly crispy on the edges and set aside to cool.
- In a heavy bottomed saucepan, combine the starch, sugar, salt, and oat milk and whisk to combine to avoid clumps. Cook over medium heat, whisking frequently until bubbling, about 4 to 6 minutes. Once the filling is cooked, it should form “ribbons” when drizzled with a spatula. Whisk in the vanilla, gently mashed banana, and remove from heat. Transfer to the freezer to quickly cool for at least 30 minutes or in the fridge for at least 2 to 3 hours.
- Just before serving, whip the coconut cream lightly until it has the consistency of whipped cream. Add the whipped coconut cream to the chilled banana custard mixture and set aside.
