Ingredients

PIE CRUST:

  • 1 standard whole grain pie crust (see links above to make your own)

PIE FILLING:

  • 1/4 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk (in the can, not the carton)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt

TOPPINGS:

  • 3 medium bananas (not green and not brown)
  • 1 cup coconut whipped cream (see link above to make your own)

Instructions

PIE CRUST

  1. Bake your pie crust to package or recipe directions. Set aside to cool.

PIE FILLING

  1. In a medium pot (do not turn on the heat yet), whisk together the maple syrup and arrowroot powder, making sure to whisk out any clumps of arrowroot. Then whisk in the coconut milk, vanilla and salt.

  2. When everything is well combined with no visible lumps from the arrowroot powder, turn the heat on to a medium-high heat and whisk constantly until the mixture thickens. (about 2 to 3 minutes)

  3. Once the mixture has completely thickened, remove the pot from heat and using a spatula, scrape the filling into your pie crust. Place immediately into the fridge for 2 hours (or more) for cooling.

    Step 2 of building this clean eating banana cream pie shows the sliced banana layer over the custard layer.
  2. Top that off with whipped coconut cream and even a sprinkle of slice almonds if you like.
