Indulgent Banana Cream Pie
An indulgent banana cream pie recipe for those who need a good solid sweet dessert. Best made with real sugar and whole milk but feel free to sub non-dairy full fat milk of choice and “healthier” sugar. I do not recommend light milk or low fat.

  • 1 precooked or homemade 9″ pie crust
  • 3cups full fat dairy milk or coconut milk
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 additional ripe banana(to be used as garnish-optional)
  • 1cup sugar or sweetener of choice
  • 1cup heavy cream(for whipped topping)
  • 1/4cup tapioca starch
  • 1/4cup sugar(for whipped topping)
  • 1tbsp gelatin
  • 1/4tsp vanilla extract(for whipped topping)
  1. In a large saucepan, mix together tapioca starch, sugar and 2 cups milk until well combined.
  2. In a blender, combine 2 bananas and remaining cup of milk until completely smooth, add gelatin powder and blend again until thoroughly combined
  3. Pour this mixture into saucepan with the rest
  4. Heat over medium high heat until thick and bubbly-stir constantly-scraping the bottom to prevent sticking
  5. After about 5 minutes you will notice the mixture has thickened. Remove from heat and stir additional minute
  6. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes
  7. Meanwhile cut your last banana into slices to line your pie crust with 1 layer of 1/4″ thick banana slices
  8. Pour half of the filling mixture in-remember, this is enough for two desserts or extra custard to enjoy!
  9. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4 hours
  10. About 10 minutes before serving, whip together whipped topping ingredients (heavy cream, 1/4 cup sugar and vanilla) in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer until you have nice whipped cream-careful not to overmix
  11. Remove plastic wrap carefully then spread whipped cream evenly onto pie and garnish with banana slices
