The main difference is that you can prepare my recipe from only just 6 ingredients, no more or anything unusual – and you only need 3 easy steps.
For now we’re heading to the best part that makes this new addition to my list of Dessert & Cake recipes so special. It is, of course, the lemon.
Did you ever realize that lemon fits so pretty amazingly to bananas? Yes, the zesty lemon flavor takes a banana cream pie to the next level. So I hope you come on board when I just say that this will be the best banana cream pie that you ever ate.
It’s my promise! I know that some of the banana cream pie recipes turn out a bit bland or require too complicated steps and ingredients. Not this one! And it is even vegan and gluten free.
When I created this recipe, I just wanted to have it easy, approachable, and flavorful at the same time. Exactly all those things I was missing. So this is my version, and I worked a lot on this recipe.
Of course, you might think sure, he was working a lot on this recipe -it’s just 6 ingredients, 3 easy steps easy game as always nothing complicated here, so what is he working on.
True, friends, the result is easy for sure but the process to create such an recipe is difficult. Especially because I want to make one with so few ingredients and easy steps but with no lack of flavor!

Let me show you how can make this beauty!
First hop over to a blender or food processor and make the dough: combine Brazil nuts, Medjool dates, lemon juice and zest, and process until well combined.
Next comes the preparation of the filling. Again, you’ll need a blender or food processor. Combine cashews, vegan cream cheese, Medjool dates, lemon juice, zest, and water.
Final assembly of the cream pie is easy play as always: press dough into a 7 inch springform, next spread the filling over, and garnish with banana slices. Refrigerate until serving or enjoy immediately – up to you.
One word about the lemon zest. I use organic lemons so I can also safely use the zest and there is no need to buy some extra zest. If you’re a lazy kid for sure you can just buy the zest and there is no need to peel it from the lemons.
When buying lemon zest please make sure it’s organic, most other non organic lemon zest contains some preservatives or additives and you can be sure those are processed which means there is no nutrition in there.
It’s just a package with artificial flavors which are made in a factory but there isn’t any goodness included from the lemon here.
Oh, and if you are are in the mood for more cake deliciousness, don’t forget to check out my Cinnamon White Chocolate Cheesecake, the Vegan Chocolate Cake, or if you prefer the more savory type, the Savory Cheesecake.
