I have never been one for sweet treatsy pies and gooey gooey chocolately delights. Have I lost you?! Okay okay, so I'm not going to pick the chocolate pie out of Perkins window case, but I HAVE always loved banana cream pie.....
but I REALLY didn't like how I felt afterwards....ugh the sugar made me feel so sick and sluggish.
Over time I gave up on the idea of trying to find a healthier way to make it as it seemed impossible without using pudding mix. But for some reason I got a wild hair and decided to pull on it.
I have to admit. It turned out awesome. I didn't know if my fans would rave the taste, so I was considering alterations, but my family said no, they absolutely loved it. So I left it as is. I will say though, that it tastes better after letting it sit in the refrigerator overnight.
It's a healthy dessert, but it's still a congestor food, so be sure to load up on Eliminator function foods to stay in balance!
Banana Cream Dessert
1 cup banana chips
1 cup dates
1 cup pecans
1/4 cup coconut oil
Pulverize all together in a food processor until fine crumbly. Press into the bottom of an 8 x 8 pan.
1 cup almond milk( I make my own, but you can use the store-bought)
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 Tablespoon molasses. (you could use agave as well, but I would put in more like 1/4 cup)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Puree in food processor or blender, then pour into a medium saucepan. Cook to a light boil until thickened.
Pour on top of the crust.
The cream topping is actually a coconut cream. TruWhip is also a better alternative to regular corn syrup laden whipped cream
Refrigerate overnight and serve.
