Ingredients
Almond Crust:
Banana Cream Pie Filling:
For Garnish
  • Raw almonds chopped
  • Raw pistachios chopped
  • 1 square dark chocolate grated
Instructions
Prepare the Almond Crust:
  1. Add the ingredients for the crust to a food processor and process until the almonds are finely chopped (but still fairly chunky), and a sticky mixture is formed. Line an 8-inch springform pan with parchment paper and press the crust mixture into the bottom, creating an even layer. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Prepare the Filling:
  1. Open the two cans of refrigerated coconut milk and scoop the thick coconut cream into a mixing bowl (or stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment), leaving the clear water behind to use in smoothies or a different recipe.
  2. Add the pure maple syrup, vanilla extract, and sea salt to the mixing bowl and use a hand mixer to beat the ingredients until thick and fluffy. It’s okay if the mixture doesn’t have the same consistency as regular homemade whipped cream, so long as it’s thick.
  3. Pour ¼ to 1/2 of the coconut whipped cream onto the prepared crust and spread into an even layer. Layer the sliced bananas on top, followed by the remaining coconut whipped cream. Use a rubber spatula to evenly spread the coconut whipped cream.

  4. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours. When ready to serve, release the pie from its mold and garnish with grated dark chocolate and chopped almonds and pistachios. Use a sharp knife to cut into triangles and serve immediately.
  5. Note: If you freeze the pie for longer than two hours, you may need to thaw it 8 to 10 minutes before cutting and serving, as the coconut milk will harden. Store leftover banana cream pie in the freezer.
Recipe Notes

Not all canned coconut milks are created equal. I recommend this or this brand for the best result. You can also use 2 (14-ounce) cans of coconut cream.
