Coco-Nutty Banana Cream Pie

 

After a few experiments to create one with the least ingredients and the least amount of time, here is a very easy, quick and ultra creamy Banana Cream with a sugar cookie Coco-Nutty Crust!  How can you beat a healthy banana pie like this: nutritious, unprocessed, quick for Mama in the Kitchen and yummy for your little (and big) one’s tummy!

 

Coco-Nutty Cookie Crust

Place in a food processor and process until small and almost powdery. Make sure not to over process as to turn into a paste:

1/2 cup macadamia nut

1 1/2 cups shredded coconut

Add in and process together:

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbspn extra virgin coconut oil, liquefy by placing bottle in hot water and pouring the melted oil out

3 tbspns raw local honey

Press onto the bottoms of 4 (4 1/2″) springform pans (the kinds where the bottom can be separated from the sides, pie shown above) or press onto bottom and sides of a 9″ pie pan (as shown below).  Place in freezer while you make the banana pudding.

Banana Pudding

In a high speed blender, process to a paste. It will first turn into powder and then into a thick paste:

1 ½ cups shredded coconut

Add in and puree together very well:

½ tsp sea salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

½ cup raw local honey

5 bananas

Pour into your spring form or pie pans with crust. Refrigerate.  You can also freeze the pie and thaw them in the refrigerator before serving.


Garnish with

thin slices of fresh bananas or coconut pieces

 

Enjoy!

        I found dried shredded coconut at my local Safeway supermarket, but no coconut oil. No luck at Trader Joe’s either. Where do you get your coconut oil?

        we have it in most of our grocery stores and all our health food shops. Maybe try your health food stores in the area? You can also buy it from vitacost.com or amazon.com.

        We found the extra virgin coconut oil at the nearby Asian supermarket. It turned out great, it’s delicious and easy to make. I’m sold!!! Can’t wait to serve it at our next weekend party.
