How to Make Keto Banana Cream Pie Without Bananas

Since bananas are not really allowed on the keto diet, you might be wondering how you are going to make keto banana cream pie without using bananas. Luckily, you can find banana flavor extract at the grocery store or online. Using banana extract in this recipe works very well. It still creates a delicious banana flavor without the excess carbs.

The main tools you will need to make a keto banana cream pie is a food processor to make the keto pie crust and a pie plate to bake the pie in.

ingredients in a food processor for making banana cream pie crust

Using a food processor to blend up the crust is the easiest way to make keto crust. The ingredients will form coarse crumbles with small chunks of butter in minutes. The food processor I use is by Breville. If you don’t have a food processor, you can combine your crust ingredients by using a fork or a pastry blender. This method works perfectly; however, it will take longer to mix up the keto dough.

The other tool you will need to make a sugar-free banana cream pie is a pie plate. Any pie plate will work. You could even use a cake pan if that is all you have.

Since this recipe for keto banana cream pie requires some different ingredients, I thought it would be useful to tell you exactly what ingredients used and brands I trust.

  • Gelatin - The gelatin in this keto banana cream pie recipe is used to thicken up the cream custard.
  • Macadamia Nut Milk - The macadamia nut milk is added to cut down on the amount of heavy cream used in this recipe, while still providing a creamy, silky texture. Macadamia nut milk is very low in carbs and higher in fat.
  • Lakanto Sweetener - The sweetener I always bake with is a combination of monkfruit and erythritol. Lakanto makes the best keto sweetener; however, you can use any sweetener of your choice as long as it measures cup for cup with sugar.
  • Banana Flavoring - To acheive a banana flavor without using bananas, we use a keto approved banana extract by One on One Flavors. You can save 10% off your first order with my code KETOFOCUS-10 at checkout.

How To Store Keto Banana Cream Pie

Like most cream pies, this keto banana cream pie should be stored in the refrigerator until you want to serve it. Any leftover cream pie should also be stored in the refrigerator. This will keep the integrity of the banana custard.

If you need to find a make-ahead keto dessert, this banana cream pie is an excellent option. The crust and/or the filling can be made up 1-2 days ahead of time.
