Creamy Clean Eating Chocolate Banana Freezer Pie

For a decadent but healthy treat, try this creamy, clean eating chocolate banana freezer pie! With the amazing flavors of banana and dark chocolate in a rich and creamy filling, all wrapped up in a crispy, flaky crust, you'll forget what it was like to make one with processed ingredients. Yum!So my mother-in-law makes chocolate pie for every holiday. Unfortunately she makes hers with store-bought pie crusts and chocolate pudding mix. Although this may sound delicious to many of you, being that we are a clean-eating family, we stay as far away from all of the refined sugar and flour, and the chemicals and preservatives in processed foods, as we can.

Chocolate pie is one of my husband’s favorite desserts, and my son is always heart-broken that he can’t have any of his Grammie’s chocolate pie. Thank goodness he knows that he just has to wait until the next day and he can have all of the homemade chocolate pie that he wants right here at home, and he can even help make it!

I have a few different versions of this pie, this particular one having much more banana flavor in it. It’s really delicious, but is very banana-flavored. For those that would like to keep their bananas and chocolate far, far away from each other, I have my Clean Eating Dark Chocolate Freezer Pie recipe. My husband really likes his desserts to be as close to his mom’s recipe, flavor, texture, and consistency-wise as possible, therefore I use bananas to get that creamy, gooey and sweet texture he’s used to.

What I love though, is that you don’t have to eat store-bought, processed ingredients to get the desserts you love. Although I play with a variety of pie crust recipes throughout my collection of yummy concoctions, this recipe, like all of my others, is super easy to pull together really quick. Now when you want a chocolate pie, but not all of the chemicals that go with it, you can take your own.

I highly recommend keeping it in the freezer though. Let me show you how I did it!

Start with your crust first so it can cook while you’re making the filling. The trick to this recipe is making your coconut oil ice cold. I smear mine on a plate into a thin even layer and pop it into the freezer.

Transfer it over. I usually do this by folding mine in half, and possibly in half again to move it, and then unfolding it into my pie pan. Press into place.

Because this is a freezer pie, you’ll want to bake it your crust before filling it.I poked holes in the bottom of my crusts with a fork and partially filled them with dry beans so the crusts didn’t bubble up in the oven.

Ingredients

Crust:

  • 1 cup coconut oil, frozen
  • 1/2 cup real butter, very cold
  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup ice water, or so

Filling:

  • 4 bananas
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup organic whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, (this is the one I use!)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, melted

Instructions

  1. I would begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F and greasing your pie dish with some coconut oil.
  2. With the 1 cup of coconut oil from the recipe, spread it thin on a plate and pop it into the freezer. We’re going to pull together the crust first since we have to bake it, and all of the ingredients need to be super cold.
  3. In the meantime, add your flour to your food processor and chop up your cold butter.
  4. Add the butter to your processor and process it into your flour.
  5. Next, pull out your coconut oil from the freezer and break it into small bits.
  6. Add those to your processor as well and process them into your flour. You should get a crumbly flour mixture.
  7. Pour this into a large mixing bowl and add your salt and sugar. Mix in.
  8. Now slowly add in your water a little at a time until your dough comes together. I always need the full half cup for my dough. Feel free to use more if your dough isn’t coming together.
  9. Dump this out on a clean surface to knead with your hands. You will be using your hands to make sure all ingredients are combined evenly and to get a soft dough. Feel free to use flour if your dough is at all sticky.
  10. When combined, cut it in half for two pie crusts and roll out one piece until just bigger than your pie dish.
  11. Transfer it over from the counter to your dish. I usually do this by folding it in half gently and possibly again if needed, and then unfolding it in my dish. Don’t worry if it tears a bit. It presses back together very easily.
  12. Press it down into your dish and cut off any extra around the outside. You can decorate your pie crust as you wish with your fingers or a fork. I chose to fold mine in and roll it around the top.
  13. Now poke holes in the bottom with a fork. I also weighed mine down with some parchment paper and dry beans to keep it from puffing up during baking, but that’s completely optional.
  14. Bake until crispy and slightly brown. For me that took about 40 minutes.
  15. While your pie is baking, you can add all of your filling ingredients to your cleaned food processor. Remember you just used it for your crust.
  16. Process everything down until smooth.
  17. When your pie crust is cool, pour in your filling, cover with saran wrap, and pop it into your freezer immediately. I put it on a cookie sheet so it didn’t tip over.
  18. Thaw for 15 minutes or so before serving, but then store in the freezer.

Honestly, I feel terrible for not letting my son eat most of his Grammie’s wonderful food. I feel like I have to concede on so many things already, as every dish she serves is full of processed food items, and I don’t want to upset her or just avoid her house altogether. We’ve tried to talk to her about how we eat and why it’s so important to us, but she simply doesn’t understand.

Clean eating to us simply means fresh fruits and veggies, grass-fed meats and dairy products, and whole grain food products. We don’t eat food in boxes, bags, cans or packages that’s already been made for us because they are full of dangerous chemicals and preservatives that cause all sorts of damage to your body. The refined white sugar and white flour in all of those products is nothing but chemicals, as all of the nutrients have been burned out of them.

We make all of our own snack foods and bread products at home using a variety of different types of grains, nuts and seeds. It’s not about being stuck up or stingy, but about keeping our children as healthy as possible to give the best chance at a fulfilling, happy life as possible without illness. I’m glad my children at least understand why we make the decisions we do for them, even if it doesn’t seem fair (because they have to see everyone else eating it).

And as a bonus, they get to help me make them at home and have no limits on the wonderful food they eat here, as long as they are eating a variety of good foods. This recipe was no less disappointing. It was creamy, and rich, and the crust was crispy and flaky. It came out perfect. The bananas and dark chocolate chips really make this chocolate pie recipe amazing. You’ll have to give it a try yourself and tell me what you think!
