RECIPE: vegan banoffee pie, not raw, just delicious!

I wanted to make a banoffee pie for my parents this weekend but taking a look on Pinterest I only found vegan recipes for raw pies. Not that there is anything wrong with raw, but sometimes you don’t want a date caramel and date-nut crust. Sometimes you want crunchy biscuits with dulce de leche, banana and soy cream; not healthy but definitely delicious.

I do have one remark on this recipe however, the soy whipping cream I used by Alpro was quite firm after just whipping it, but after it had been in the fridge for a while it became a lot runnier, so the presentation wasn’t as pretty. Instead of the soy whipping cream you could definitely use coconut whipping cream, but I prefer not to have a coconutty flavour in dishes that aren’t supposed to taste like coconut ;).

For a basic dulce de leche recipe I used this one, but I of course made it vegan instead. I also chose to omit the vanilla extract, since Dutch sweetened soy milk has a bit of a vanilla flavour anyway. I also added some salt to make it more of a salted caramel sauce, which I would definitely recommend!

Ingredients

  • 150 grams of digestives (10 cookies)
  • 50 grams of vegan margarine, melted
  • 485 mL of soy milk
  • 180 grams of sugar
  • A pinch of baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 medium bananas
  • One container of Alpro soy whipping cream (251 grams)

 

Instructions

  1. Start by making your dulce de leche by placing the soymilk with 130 grams of sugar and the baking powder in a saucepan, bringing it to a boil and turning it down to a simmer. Let it simmer for 1-1.5 hours stirring occasionally to make sure it doesn’t burn, leave to cool for a bit then stir in the salt.
  2. Crush up your biscuits then add the melted butter, stirring to make sure all the crumbs are coated, press into a cake tin. Put in the fridge for 10 min to let it harden a bit
  3. Pour the caramel over the cookie crumbs, spreading it gently to the edges
  4. Cut your banana into slices, arrange the slices on top of the caramel
  5. Whip you whipping cream with 50 grams of sugar and spoon over the pie
  6. Cut into 12 pieces and serve!
  7. Enjoy!
