Banana Coconut Cream Pie! (Raw, Cane Sugar Free & Vegan)

No-Bake, Banana, Coconut, Cream, Pie, raw, vegan, chocolate, sauce, gluten free, grain free, paleo

I’ve wanted to share this recipe with you folks for a few weeks now. I’ve made it 3 times, yep 3 times in the last 3 weeks! We had 5 guests over a period of 3 weeks in our home and then when I would finally try to take a picture before the pie was gone, it would be too late. My kids and hubby would dig into it faster than I could press click on my camera. Ahh life with a family ,eh?!

Anyways…back to the PIE. It’s delicious! And such a healthy alternative to the store bought Banana Cream Pie I used to love in my childhood. Indeed Chocolate Banana Cream Pie was my absolute favorite pie. I used to beg my mom for a slice of it when we would go out to eat on occasion. And my Mom would comply as long as I ate my veggies first. So while I would like my kids to eat their veggies first before digging into this dessert, there is no guilt to be had with eating it all in its lonesome. It’s got some fruit, healthy fats and fiber. Oh and guests that are not gluten free in the least, love it!

No-Bake Banana Coconut Cream Pie! (Raw, Cane Sugar Free & Vegan)
Recipe type: Dessert, Snack
Cuisine: Dairy Free, Grain Free, Raw & Vegan
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups pecans
  • 1/ 2 cup dates
  • 1 can chilled Natural Value coconut milk (or other brand with just the cream)
  • 2 Bananas
  • ⅔ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup agar powder
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt
Instructions
  1. Optional: Soak pecans for 8 hours (I do it the night before I make the recipe) in 4 cups of water. Rinse pecans and discard water. Set aside.
  2. Soak the dates in 1 cup of water for 5 minutes. Discard the water and remove the pits from the dates.
  3. Place pecans in the food processor and pulse until ground for 2 minutes. Add in the dates and pulse for another 3 minutes. Take the pecan and date mixture and press it down into a glass pie dish to make a crust. Make sure the crust is evenly spread out to fill out the entire pie dish.
  4. Place the coconut milk, bananas, sugar, agar, vanilla and sea salt into a high speed blender or Vitamix. Press ingredients down prior to starting the blender. Blend on high for 2 minutes.
  5. Carefully pour the “cream” on top of the raw pie crust. Use a spatula to spread the topping out evenly. Place the pie in the freezer for 1-2 hours. Remove from freezer and serve!
  6. Note: I like to add a chocolate drizzle to the pie. I do this by slowly melting dairy-free chocolate chips in a saucepan over the stove. Once the chocolate has melted, let it cool and then drizzle over the pie.

  8. I’ve been trying to comment on this post for weeks now! For some reason every time I do I get kicked off. I LOVE this recipe and I’m so glad you shared it with us at Raw Foods Thursdays! I may be making this for our next Raw Foods Potluck. It sounds so good!

    • Thank you so much Heather for your sweet comment! I just changed my whole comment system as other readers were having issues as well. Hopefully it is much easier to use now. Cheers!

  9. Can I use unflavored gelatin in place of the agar powder? I’m thinking this will make a great Father’s Day dessert for my hubby.
