Ingredients

Banana Cream/Custard

  • 2 very very ripe Bananas
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Cream taken from the top of a can that's been in the fridge overnight
  • 1/4 cup Milk Almond, Coconut etc
  • 1/3 cup Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons Arrowroot
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 3 Egg Yolks
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Gelatin
  • 3 tablespoons Coconut Oil melted
  • 3/4 cup Whipped Coconut Cream- measure after whipping see recipe below

Whipped Coconut Cream

  • 3/4 cup Coconut Cream can opened and in fridge overnight
  • 1 teaspoons Maple Syrup
  • 1 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

Instructions

Banana Cream/Custard

  • Combine the very, very ripe bananas, coconut cream and milk in a blender and puree until totally smooth.
  • Add in the maple syrup, arrowroot, salt and egg yolks. Blend until no banana lumps remain.
  • Pour the mixture into a medium saucepan.
  • Before heating the banana mixture, evenly sprinkle the gelatin over 1/4 cup cold water. Allow it set for 4 minutes.
  • Whisk the banana mixture in the saucepan over medium-low heat. Continue to whisk and stir as the mixture will thicken and has a tendency to stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Bring to a boil and continue to whisk vigorously for 3-4 minutes. The mixture will be quite thick. Pour the thickened banana mixture in a blender (make sure you have cleaned it from earlier use) and add the gelatine mixture and melted coconut oil.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Transfer the mixture to a heatproof container and leave in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  • Remove the banana cream from the fridge and place in a bowl of a stand mixer with a whisk attachment. Add the whipped coconut cream and whisk on low until combined, and no cream streaks remain.
  • Pour the Banana Cream/Custard into a serving dish/pie crust and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.

Whipped Coconut Cream

  • Scoop the thickened cream from the tin, discarding the watery liquid at the bottom.
  • Place the cream, maple syrup and vanilla extract into a mixing bowl and beat using the whisk attachment until thick (allow 5-10 minutes).
