Paleo Banana Cream Pie Filling

My husband enjoyed a non-Paleo Banana Cream Pie awhile ago and this has become his favorite pie.  If I ask his advice for a desert, his automatic response is “Banana Cream Pie”.  I think I need to say thanks to Barb for introducing him to this pie back in October!  Needless to say, I only ask his advice now when I crave a Paleo Banana Cream Pie!  I normally create this pie at night and let it set overnight for the next day.  Who doesn’t want Paleo Banana Cream Pie for breakfast?!?!

Paleo Banana Cream Pie Filling

Ingredients
1 pie shell
3 very ripe bananas (skins removed)
1 can full fat coconut milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 TBL vanilla extract
3 Medjool dates (seed removed)
1/2 cup coconut oil
 
Directions
1.  Drain the water from the coconut milk can.  I normally open the can from the ‘bottom’ and it will have about a 1/4 cup of coconut water.
2.  Place all ingredients in the blender and puree.
3.  Pour filling into a cooked pie shell.
4.  Allow to chill and set for a minimum of 4 hours.
