chocolate banana pudding pie

a trip to hawaii and a taste of ted bakery's haupia chocolate pie put me in a pie-making trance. 2 days and 6 pies later i believe i came close, but that's for another recipe blog. remember, my girls are allergic to coconut and can't eat the coconut pudding, haupia. i felt bad that the kitchen was filled pies they couldn't eat, so i attempted my first dairy-free pie. tala said it taste just like chocolate pudding on crust... well that's pretty much what it is.

i'm still on a hunt for a dairy-free and coconut-free whip cream. soyatoo has coconut, no good. and i'm not into any whip cream recipe that includes tofu, yuck.

ingredients:
• pre-made pie crust (maybe one day i'll try to make from scratch)
• 1/4 cornstarch
• 1/3 cup sugar
• 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
• 1/4 tspn salt
• 3 cups soy milk
• 1/2 cup ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips
• 1 tspn vanilla extract
• 2 bananas

directions:

1. bake pie crust as directed on package.

2. in a pan, whisk together dry ingredients: cornstarch, sugar, cocoa powder and salt. gradually whisk in soy milk. bring to boil mixing constantly until mixture thickens. remove from heat and add vanilla extract and chocolate chips, mix until smooth.

3. pour a thin layer of the mixture into the pie crust just to coat the bottom, add slices of banana, coat with mixture, and repeat until all mixture is used.

4. refrigerate overnight.
