Banana Coconut Cream Pie


I'm flashing back to two winters ago when I made this banana coconut cream pie because my whole life is all about coconut! I love coconut; I just bought coconut cream and coconut sugar to make my strawberry gelato. And banana coconut cream pie is sooooo a summer dessert that I just need to share this again. I made this pie with canned coconut cream that I bought at Trader joe's because I've never had success refrigerating and using coconut milk; it's always too runny. If you use coconut milk for creamy recipes, use it, you don't HAVE to use canned coconut cream. If you use coconut milk, use BPA free, canned full fat coconut milk. The filling for this pie is two ingredients (bananas and coconut cream) so it's a great I need to bring a dessert to this party but have no time to make anything recipe.

I'm going to make this again and I may change it a little; I may add some vanilla extract or coconut sugar but this dessert really is great the way it is. You can also use different fruit besides banana and make a strawberry coconut cream pie or blackberry, get your berries in while they are in season!

You don't need to use coconut oil for the crust if you want to cut down on fat; use dates and nuts and call it a day. You can even throw in some oats or chia seeds to make it a mishmash crust of all different superfoods. Feel free to use my recipe as a base and make it your own.

So, here is it...I'm flashing back to winter 2014 for this recipe so enjoy!

I am pretty much done testing the strawberry gelato recipe, I just need to take some stellar pics so stay tuned for that recipe this weekend.

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!
