Chocolate Banana Freezer Pie

Recipe from:Best of Clean Eating 2

  • 5 small ripe bananas, peeled and broken or cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup light coconut milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 baked Extra Easy Whole Grain Pie Crust
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted dry roasted peanuts, chopped
  • 1 oz dark chocolate (70% or greater), finely chopped

Instructions

Combine bananas, cocoa, coconut milk and vanilla in the jar of a blender.  Blend until smooth stopping to scrape down sides of jar and stir mixture 2 or 3 times.

Pour banana puree into baked pie crust.  Sprinkle peanuts and chocolate across surface of pie.  Cover very tightly with plastic wrap and freeze for a minimum of 4 hours, or overnight.

To serve, remove plastic wrap and set at room temperature for about 30 minutes (longer if pie was frozen for more than 4 hours) until pie is just soft enough to yield to the cut of a knife.  Slice and serve.

Notes:

I love chocolate and I love bananas so I was very excited to try this pie.  I ended up having to put it in my much too cold deep freeze for longer than expected and I don’t think I had it wrapped tight enough.  So in the end it had a bit of an ice crystal crunch to it.  So make sure you wrap it well to avoid this! I will definitely give it another whirl at another time.
