Easy as Banana Cream Pie

BY : PUBLISHED : February 8th, 2015 UPDATED: January 12th, 2022

This is one of the easiest oil-free and vegan Banana Cream Pie recipes you will probably ever make! All you need is a store-bought or pre-made vegan pie crust (or crush some cookies to make your own) plus a few other ingredients you likely have on hand already. As a bonus, this pie has no added preservatives, artificial flavors or oils. Why mess up something as good as the flavor of natural bananas?

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pre-made pie crust (or your favorite plant-based pie crust recipe)
  • 2 very ripe, large bananas (plus more for garnish)
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1 Tablespoon of sugar (I used coconut sugar)
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 pitted and soaked dates
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions
 

  • Start by cooking the pie crust. Preheat the oven to 375º. Pre-bake the pie crust on its own for 15-20 minutes, or until lightly browned. To make sure that the middle of the crust doesn't lift while baking, set an additional pie tin inside (as if you are stacking it on top).
  • Using a high-speed blender or food processor, mix all the ingredients until you get a smooth and creamy consistency. Set aside in the refrigerator until you are ready to assemble the pie.
  • Once the pie crust has finished cooking, allow it to cool completely before pouring in the filling. Once it has cooled, pour in the banana and coconut milk mixture and place in the freezer to set. This will take a couple of hours.
  • Once the pie has set, slice some bananas to garnish on top. You might want it to sit at room temperature for an hour or so to thaw, or you can eat it like a banana ice cream pie. Note that if you leave this out for too long, the filling will melt. It still tastes just fine, but it doesn't look as pretty and becomes harder to slice.

Notes

Select a ready-made crust or make your own cookie crumb crust. Just make sure the crust is baked if necessary before proceeding with the filling.
