Vegan Banana Pie

//Written by Margeaux Perkins//

What’s one to do when they have a leftover pie crust from Pi Day (I know that seems like a long time ago but it was perfectly fine), some overripe bananas and too many 100 calorie snack packs of almonds? Make a vegan banana pie of course! I found a similar recipe to this online when I searched “healthy banana pie” in hopes of creating something delicious and good for me. Though that recipe was much more intense (think food processors, blenders, and other kitchen utensils a poor college student like me doesn’t possess), I managed to simplify and create a yummy and healthy frozen treat! 

Level Easy
Serves 8
Prep Time 5 Minutes
Cook Time 15 Minutes
Total Time 20 Minutes

Ingredients:

1 pie crust, baked according to directions on the box
3 medium bananas
2 tsp vanilla
¼ cup maple syrup (or for a non-vegan version, substitute with honey)
⅓ cup applesauce
½ whole almonds
⅛ teaspoon salt

Directions:

  1.  Mash bananas with a fork until smooth
  2.  Add in vanilla, honey, applesauce, salt, mix with fork.
  3. Crush almonds until fine powder
  4. Add almonds and beat on high with a hand mixer
  5. Beat for 5-7 minutes or until mixture is smooth
  6. Pour into pre-made pie crust. Smooth surface with fork
  7. Freeze overnight

Keep frozen for best results!
