- Always remember the shake test when you buy tinned coconut milk. Give the tin a gentle shake and see if the cream has already set in the tin. If it has, then it should be fine to use. If not, then the cream might not set even when you refrigerate the tin.
- Opt for soy-free milk, chocolate and margarine to make this recipe soy-free.
Vegan Banoffee Pie
Posted by So Vegan on Tuesday, 16 April 2019
- 2 x 400g / 14oz tins good quality full fat coconut milk
- 300g / 10.6oz hobnobs or another vegan biscuit
- 3 tbsp dairy-free spread
- 20 medjool dates
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 80ml / 2.7fl.oz plant-based milk
- 3 ripe bananas
- 2 tbsp icing sugar
- 30g / 1oz dark chocolate, grated
To serve (optional):
- Biscoff spread
- plant-based milk
- Place the 2 tins of coconut milk in the fridge so the cream sets at the top.
- Transfer the dates to a small mixing bowl and cover with hot water straight from the kettle. Leave to one side to soak while you carry out the next steps.
- Add the dairy-free spread to a saucepan on a low heat until it has melted fully, then carefully pour the melted spread into a food processor along with the hobnobs and 1 tbsp of water. Process until fully combined and the hobnobs have broken down into crumbs. Transfer the base mixture to a 22cm (9") cake tin that has a removable base. Spread the biscuit base evenly across the bottom and sides of the tin, pressing down into the tin to make sure that it's compact. It's important the base is compact, otherwise it might not hold when you remove it from the tin. Then wipe out the food processor ready for the next step.
- To make the caramel layer, drain the dates, remove the stones and add the dates to the food processor along with the vanilla extract and plant-based milk. Process until smooth. Note, add water (a tbsp at a time) if needed so the caramel is smooth but make sure the caramel doesn't become too wet or runny. Pour the caramel on top of the biscuit base and smooth it out with a spatula until even. Place the cake tin in the fridge and leave the caramel to set for an hour.
- After 1 hour, cut the bananas into 0.5cm (1/3 inch) thick slices and arrange them on top of the caramel.
- Scoop out the cream that has set at the top of the 2 tins of coconut milk and add to a mixing bowl along with the icing sugar. Whisk until fully combined, then pour on top of the slices of banana and gently smooth out with the spatula. Place the banoffee pie back in the fridge to set for at least 1 hour or until ready to serve.
- When ready to serve, finely chop the dark chocolate and sprinkle on top of the banoffee pie.
- If serving with the Biscoff sauce, combine 3 tbsp Biscoff spread with 6 tbsp plant-based milk and stir until the sauce is smooth and runny.
- To serve, drizzle some biscoff sauce over each slice of banoffee pie. Keep any leftovers in the fridge. If you leave the banoffee pie out of the fridge for too long, the base might become soggy!

What is Biscoff sauce? I don’t think it is on Canada.
Could I make extra of the caramel sauce and us it?
Hi Kathy, biscoff sauce is a biscuit sauce made by Lotus. You could definitely sub for a caramel sauce. Hope this helps. Thanks, Roxy
How long would you say this’ll keep fresh? I want to make it for an event, but only have time 2 days beforehand. What do you think? Thanks!
Hi do you know how many calories there are per slice plus how many grams per slice for the fat, protein and carbohydrates
What can you use instead of dates?
I used prunes and it worked just as well!
I made this tonight and it was delicious, not to mention very easy to make!! Thanks so much for this recipe, everyone was shocked to know it was vegan
This was amazing, we made it Christmas Day 2020, love a good banoffee pie. This is incredible! We used halwa dates too so can only imagine with medjool this would be perhaps EVEN TASTIER. And that would be hard! Thanks for the awesome recipe 🙂
