Maintenance – Dairy-free Banana Dream Pie

Imagine a pie completely free of butter, cream, eggs or white flour…inconceivable right!  Well this fantastic recipe comes from (for which I am a Food for Life Cooking Instructor) and that is exactly what they achieved with this recipe.  I absolutely love this pie and to top it off the pie crust is FAT-FREE!

So this Thanksgiving you can make your pie and eat it too!

Banana Dream Pie


1/2 cup sugar or other sweetener

5 tablespoons cornstarch

1  Fat-Free Pie Crust

Mix sugar or other sweetener and cornstarch in a saucepan, then stir in non-dairy milk and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until very thick. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Blend tofu in a food processor until totally smooth, then add the pudding and blend until smooth.

Layer banana slices in pie crust. Spread tofu mixture on top.

Refrigerate until completely chilled, at least 2 hours.
