For the Vanilla Pudding:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 Tablespoons Earth Balance Vegan Butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

For the Pie:

  • 1 cooked pie crust of choice gluten-free if needed
  • 2-3 bananas sliced
  • 1 container coconut cool whip I use So Delicious CocoWhip


  • Prebake the pie crust and allow to cool completely.
  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, egg yolks and salt. While whisking, slowly about 1/2 cup of the almond milk.
  • Place the saucepan over medium heat and whisk in the remaining almond milk. Cook while whisking constantly, until the mixture begins to bubble. Once bubbling, cook for another 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly, until the pudding is thick an coats the back of a wooden spoon.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the vegan butter and vanilla extract. Let pudding cool for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Place a layer of bananas along the bottom of the pie crust. Pour over the cooled pudding. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours until set.
  • Top with coconut cool whip and more bananas. Serve and enjoy!


Any precooked pie crust you like will work for this pie! This pie needs to be served a few hours after it is made or the bananas will brown and the pie crust will get mushy. As a substitution note, this recipe will not work without the egg yolks.
