This Vegan Banoffee Pie is no bake, refined sugar free, dairy free, gluten free and 100% yummy! The base is made with crushed nuts, dates and coconut oil. The caramel is made from dates and is super sweet and gooey (I could eat it on it’s own it’s so good!) And the cream on top is coconut cream, which I absolutely love as I’m impressed every time I make it with how rich and creamy it is. Vegan Banoffee Pie is the perfect treat for Veganuary, or anytime of year!
To make the base I used my NutriBullet to whizz together the almonds, pecans, dates and hazelnuts.
I added the melted coconut oil, then pressed the mixture into a loose bottomed tart tin lined with cling film.
To make the date caramel I put the dates, almond milk, maple syrup and coconut oil into a pan and boiled it for 3 minutes. I let it cool for a bit, then whizzed it into a puree with my hand blender.
Then I spread the date caramel into the crust.
I chopped up two bananas and brushed them with lemon juice, then I arranged them neatly on top of the caramel.
For the coconut cream I whisked together the coconut milk, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
I dolloped it over the bananas, then grated some dairy free dark chocolate all over the top. I left the edges of the bananas peeking out, and there was some extra coconut cream to serve with the pie! This Vegan Banoffee Pie was totally tasty, the fruity bananas and coconut cream add freshness to the sweet date caramel.
