We present you the frozen chocolate banana peanut pie. Let’s begin with the recipe.
For this recipe you will need the following ingredients:
- 100 grams of melted butter
- 40 wafer biscuits (chocolate)
- One cup of peanut butter
- One cup of milk
- 60 grams (half a cup) of unrefined brown sugar
- 30 grams chopped salted peanuts
- One cup of cold whipped cream
- One banana
Note: If you are lactose intolerant or you simply don’t want cow milk in your recipes, you can use almond or coconut milk as a substitute. Moreover, if you have a peanut allergy you can use soynut butter or tahini, and avoid sprinkling salted peanuts on top of it. As for the sugar, you can use unrefined muscovado sugar that is more nutritious than the regular brown sugar. Just be careful, this type of sugar is actually a little bit sweeter than the regular brown sugar. That’s why a little of it goes a long way!
Frozen Chocolate Banana Peanut Pie
First, put the chocolate wafers in a blender or a food processor. Pulse until you get finely chopped tiny pieces. You suppose to get just over two cups of chocolate crumbs. Then, take one big bowl, and whisk the melted butter and chocolate crumbs until all of the mixtures are united. Put the resulting mixture into a 25-centimeter pie mold (bottom and sides) and refrigerate it while you arrange the filling.
In a small saucepan, mix the brown sugar and the milk. Warm up the liquid over low heat until the sugar completely dissolves. Put the peanut butter in the mixture and stir until you get a creamy mixture. Then, transfer the blend into a larger bowl. Whisk the cold whipped cream, and then pour it over in the peanut butter and milk mixture. Cut the banana into medium circles and place them on the cooled chocolate crust. Spread the peanut butter mixture over the banana circles evenly. Next, flatten the mixture with a spatula and sprinkle chopped peanuts on top to garnish.
Put the pie in the freezer for at least five hours. Serve it chilled with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
