Chocolate Banana Pie

I recently borrowed a movie from the library...Waitress. I know, I know, but it was a  feel good movie. I especially liked it when the main character named the pies she was making like " I hate my husband pie". It was funny:P  The ending of the movie is good too, I won't give it away because that would be lame. Anywho....when I make pies I think of this movie. I made this for Ocean's birthday!

  • 1 box silken tofu
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 cup of dark chocolate-melted in a bain marie
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch-mixed with 1 1/2 tsp soy milk
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup

In a blender, add tofu and mix until creamy, add bananas.
Melt chocolate in a bowl on top of a pot of boiling water (bain marie),
Add to blender, add cornstarch and maple syrup.
Pour into a precooked pie crust, and place in the fridge for as long as possible.
(I sprinkled chocolate shavings and crushed peanuts around the edge, to make it pretty:)


  1. What a great looking pie

  2. That looks very delicious. Thought it brilliant to add bananas. I love the banana flavour. Thanks for sharing

  7. Hey Kirsten,

    How much is in a box of Silken Tofu? The kind I buy has about 12oz. Good amount? Thanks for your awesome blog, I'm glad I found you!

    Kirsten (yes, we share the same name...!)

  8. Hi Kirsten :)

    Yep, 12 oz sound good. I think it has 350grams in a box? I am glad you found my blog too:)

  9. Excellent, thanks! I made it this evening to have tomorrow. Okay maybe not ALL of it tomorrow between my husband and I, but some. A lot. And a little for the 4 year old. Mmmm yum I can't wait...

  10. Experimented eating vegan last month and enjoyed it. Have you found any store-bought vegan pie crust? I have not so was just wondering if you make your own to make this dish vegan.

  11. Yes I do make my own pie crust Melanie...but I am sure there must be some kind of vegetable based pie crust in the stores....maybe check your local organic grocer? Thanks for your comment, I hope you keep on the vegan food track:)

  12. Interesting! yum!
    How long in advance can I make this for a party? does it freeze well?
