I’ve seen pictures of this desert even before I started food blogging, but I have never searched a recipe, nor have I tried to make one myself. When I ended my relationship with sugar, the option to make the classic recipe has disappeared and I haven’t had the courage to make a healthier version.
Just in case you don’t know, Banoffee Pie is more like a tart with bananas, sweetened and boiled condensed milk (dulce de leche) and whipped cream. Unfortunately, I haven’t found a decent alternative for dulce de leche nor have I wanted to use 400g of cream whipped cream for one dessert. I had to change everything, starting with the crust and finishing with the decor, and the mission didn’t seem easy.
However, I found myself with a bunch of ripe bananas and had to do something with them. I decided to venture out and I tried to make my healthy version of Banoffee Pie. I was aware that it will not be exactly like the classic but I was sure that I will end up with something tasty.
To obtain the condensed milk flavor I used the toffee flavdrops from Myprotein and I kept the cream, but I reduced the quantity. I recommend using only natural unsweetened whipping cream, because it is sooo much tastier and healthier than the one with vegetable fats. Do not panic that it has 35% fat, because fats don’t not kill us and the amount used is not very big anyway.
I don’t know how much my Banoffee Pie resembles the ones from the pictures, but I can say that it is extremely tasty and it’s worth trying.
