Instructions

How to make Vegan Banoffee Pie

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.

  2. Take a bowl and mix graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, cinnamon, and sugar in it. Combine until thoroughly mixed.

  3. Now take a pie pan and lightly grease it. Press the crust into it and bake for 10 minutes.

  4. Press into a lightly greased pie pan and bake for 10 minutes. Let it cool on a wire rack and prepare the filling.

  5. Chop the dates. You can make a smooth paste in a blender or leave some small chunks of dates.

  6. Add dates, 1 cup water, and vanilla extract in a small pot and cook for 10 minutes or until thickened and bubbling.

  7. Add filling to the crust and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

  8. When your pie is chilled, add a layer of slices of banana.

  9. Add the coconut cream and ¼ cup icing sugar to a large bowl and whisk until soft peaks form.

  10. Add the cream on top of the sliced bananas.

Decoration Ideas

  • Sprinkle with shaved chocolate and serve!
  • If you are looking for more garnish ideas, sprinkle over some nuts such as peanuts, hazelnuts, slices of banana, or more toffee bits.

Some Useful Tips

  • When you bake the crust, it will become puffy. If you like a firmer graham crust, press it down with the help of a bottom of a glass.

  • Let the crust cool completely before filling.

  • Place the Banoffee pie in the fridge to set or until ready to serve for at least 1 hour.

  • I always recommend a sharp knife that is run under hot water to achieve nice clean slices.

  • Never use ripe bananas because they will brown within 24 hours. Only use those bananas that are ‘just’ ripe.

  • You can also use sweetened condensed milk to make your pie more delicious but remember, boil that condensed milk over low heat until it becomes thick and caramel-colored. You can buy any type of coconut condensed milk too.

Can I make Vegan Banoffee ahead?

It is better to make the crust the day before preparing the dessert itself; then, it will be infused and will have a richer taste. If you have premade crust, the preparation process will take no more than 15 minutes, excluding the time for cooling the dessert itself.

You can also store the whipped coconut cream in a container. Slice the bananas and assemble the whole pie just before serving!

It will be very difficult to hold on, but if the finished Banoffee is chilled in the refrigerator for about 4-5 hours, it will hold its shape better when cut.

How do you keep bananas safe from darkening?

Make sure that your whipped cream covered every inch of banana. But if you can also slice the bananas and sprinkle lemon juice on top of them to help prevent browning.

Can I use biscuits to make a crust?

There are so many recipes of Banoffee pie on which digestive biscuits are used. If you want to add biscuits to your Banoffee pie base, you must ensure they are crushed to a fine crumb. Remember, anything you use for your base, make sure they are all well-combined, stick, and vegan friendly.

How does Vegan Banoffee pie taste like?

The taste of Vegan Banoffee pie is beyond delicious, and it is a perfect combination of the unhealthiest ingredients. Even you can’t judge that it is made without dairy products. It’s a great treat for the mind and the taste buds.

How long does homemade Banoffee pie last?

It is recommended to eat the vegan banoffee pie within 24 hours after it’s made. Well-covered pie can last 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator. But remember that the bananas will turn darker with each passing day. In addition, you can’t freeze this pie because of the delicateness of the cream and the fruit. It will become soggy once defrosted.
