Banana Cream Pie

I found out this afternoon that we had been invited to our next door neighbour's backyard BBQ this evening. Knowing that there would be very little vegan food at this shindig I thought I would donate a pie to the festivities. And what an easy pie it was! All of the ingredients were either purchased pre-made (the graham cracker pie crust was vegan) or easy to mix. There was actually nothing to "make".

 Easy as Pie Banana Cream Pie

You will need one ready-made graham cracker pie crust, two bananas, one package of silken tofu (I used Mori-Nu) and one package of Mori-Nu Vanilla Pudding mix. That's it!

Here's what you do:  Slice the bananas into the pie crust.

 Put the tofu into a mixing bowl (or food processor) and whip it until it is smooth.

 Add the vanilla pudding mix and whip for about two minutes. You will have to scrape the bowl down a few times. Pour the pudding mix into the pie shell and put it in the fridge to firm up - it takes at least two hours.

 That's it! If you wanted to jazz it up you could put sliced bananas on top of the pie as well as at the bottom.
