How To Make Vegan Banoffee Pie

0
Your rating: None
Here is a vegan banoffee pie recipe that will have you going for more than a second helping. You can use vegan digestive biscuits for the pie base. The soya cream and soya caramel can be brought from some local supermarkets, whole food stores and from online sites.
What you'll need: 
250 grams crushed vegan digestive biscuits
50 grams vegan butter
3 packets Alpro soya caramel dessert
2 or 3 bananas
Soyatoo vegan cream (300ml carton)
Bowl
Flan tin
50 grams vegan chocolate
1: 
Melt the vegan butter and mix in the crushed digestive biscuits into the butter. Transfer the biscuit mixture to the flan tin and press evenly into the base. Place in the fridge to set for 20 minutes.
2: 
Remove the biscuit base from the fridge. Snip the Alpro soya caramel dessert packets and spread evenly over the biscuit base.
3: 
Peel and slice the bananas, place the banana slices on the caramel filling.
4: 
Place the Soyatoo vegan cream into a bowl and whisk for a while to a thick and creamy texture. This brand of vegan cream doesn’t usually need that much whisking. Spread the vegan cream over the caramel layer.
5: 
Grate some vegan chocolate over the cream topping to decorate. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to set and chill.
6: 
You can enjoy your vegan banoffee pie
Conclusion: 
This is a delicious vegan banoffee pie that non vegans will even enjoy as well. If you want a gluten free base, you can use gluten and vegan free crushed oat biscuits. You can also use the recipe I wrote for gluten and dairy free Graham crackers for the base as well.
Tips: 
You can use Alpro soya cream instead. Just remember it will be less thick and you will have to whisk it for a while to get a thick texture.
You can use Matamis na bao (coconut jam) for the caramel filling if you prefer.
