Banoffee pie recipe (Dairy Free & Vegan)

It’s hard to believe this delicious dessert is vegan & dairy free! It’s long been a family favourite and I’m happy to have ‘veganised’ it. It tastes just as good! Bananas, caramel, biscuit & cream it’s a winning combination!

Or make your own:

  • 1/2 cup vegan spread
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
The topping
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 150 ml Vegan Double Cream (Alpro)
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 50 G Dark Chocolate

Instructions

  • To make the base, butter and line loose-bottomed tin with baking parchment. Put the digestive biscuits in a plastic food bag and crush to crumbs with a rolling pin or similar object.
  • Melt the vegetable spread.
  • Put the biscuit crumbs in a bowl and Mix thoroughly with the melted vegan butter until the crumbs are completely coated.
  • Tip them into the prepared tin and press firmly down into the base .
  • Chill in the fridge for 1 hr to set firmly.
  • For the caramel sauce – you can spread the Betty Crocker ready made icing over the base. Or:
  • Bring brown sugar, vegan butter, and coconut milk to a gentle boil and cook until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat; add vanilla extract.
  • Wait for it to cool before spreading evenly over the biscuit base.
  • Slice & layer the banana over the caramel.
  • Whisk the vegan double cream & icing sugar until it’s a thick consistency.
  • Place the whipped cream over the bananas.
  • Grate the dark chocolate over to finish.
    Chill for an hour & serve!

Enjoy!
