Recipe Directions

CRUST

1. Blend ingredients in a food processor. Add more agave if needed to make the crust sticky.

2. Line pie pan with saran wrap and press crust on top. Place in freezer while making the filling.

FILLING

3. Blend the rest of the ingredients, except banana slices, in a blender until smooth. Make sure there is enough liquid to have the ingredients swirling in a vortex. Add coconut water, if needed. (I personally add 1-2 cups coconut water, regardless.)

4. Take crust out from the freezer and place sliced bananas on top of the crust. Pour filling on top of bananas.

5. Place in freezer for 3-4 hours to set.

6. Using saran wrap, lift pie from pan and place on a pie plate. Cover sides of pie with dry coconut flakes.

COCONUT CREAM TOPPING (OPTIONAL)

7. Add a coconut cream topping by running the meat of a mature coconut through a heavy juicer. The “juice” will have the consistency similar to whipped cream.

8. Spread cream on top of pie filling before placing pie in the freezer. I found this step to be a lot of work. The mature coconut is really hard to work with and not worth the effort for just a little bit of cream. I made this recipe a second time without the cream, and it was just as good!

Jocelynaz's Thoughts

By jocelynaz

This is an amazing banana coconut cream pie. It is so easy to make and truly is better than the cooked version!

A friend of ours, who is not a fan of banana cream pie, absolutely loved this pie.

The original recipe I am giving is for a mini-springform pan size.

I tripled the crust recipe to fill a normal size pan. You can double the filling if you want. It will depend on how much coconut water you add. I personally did not need to double the filling recipe because I added more coconut water.

I also drizzle raw cacao syrup over each individual slice. Mmmmm.

Banana Coconut Cream Pie
5
5 out of 5

I've made this recipe three times in the past but its been a while since I've made it and I want to make it to take it to work for my boss and the people I work with at a local Organic Vegetable Farm.

So, I got a couple of questions. First, would this recipe work if I made the crust out of brazil nuts? Secondly, either I have to get up really really early (as I normally get up at 6:30 and am at work by 8:15 or so), or I have to make the pie the day before. So, does this freeze well? If not, could I make it the day before and store it in the fridge overnight and then bring it to work and put it in the freezer for 3-4 hours? If at all possible, I would like to be able to have it on our mid morning break... between 11:00 and 12:00 usually.

This pie is definitely worth ones time! (It's quick and easy also) I've made it multiple times now and as always, it is our favorite. I've made it for non-raw potlucks, and no one knows it's RAW! They believe it is seriously a banana cream pie! This crust is also my husbands favorite crust. Don't miss out on this one! It's SOOOOOO very very GOOD! This one is gone off the table fast!!!!!!!

I think a good crust would be to use soaked and dehydrated almonds, blend them to a flour, add some sweetener and dried bananas, and that would be awesome. Walnut or pecan flour would work, too!

Couple things, I see this is an expensive pie so I will only make one :-). I will not be going to the health food store anytime soon so i cannot get macadamia nuts. Could walnuts or pecans work?? What about making a coconut crust? Also, how many young coconuts is 2 Cups? Hopefully only one.

I guess you could make teh syrup with Agave and Carob too - maybe put it in a piping bag so it looks pretty like yours did :) I'm not a huge fan of the regular banana creme pie, but this one looks incredible and too good not to try! Thanks for posting the recipe and the amazing photo!

yes, those are the young coconuts. I guess you could use brown hairy coconut meat, but it's a lot more difficult and probably harder to grind. Young coconuts produce a more creamy pie filling.

can you make this type of thing with brown hairy coconut meat, instead of the young? the young coconuts are the white ones, wrapped in plastic, right? with pointy edges?

It's easy to make a chocolate syrup. Just blend some cocoa powder with enough agave nectar.

I'm going to make that today!!!!! Since I don't have macadamia nuts, I'll use almond flour instead for the crust. But how did you get the filling so stiff and white? Young coconut meat is usually thin and watery. I'd love to make that!

Thanks Indulge for providing the link to the video! I forgot to mention it. :)

The cacao syrup I actually bought from Wilderness Family Natural's. It's amazing! It's only 2 ingredients: agave and cacao powder, so as soon as we finish it, I'm going to try to make this on my own. I have both ingredients in abundance right now. :)

Wow! Your photo of it looks SO good! I love the addition of chocolate sauce. I remember this pie and it was REALLY Good! I never made it because of the work of finding and juicing the mature coconut meat, so I'm glad to hear it turned out great for you with just the young coconut meat. I'll try it that way.

Here is the full video - can see Vanessa making it -
