Strawberry-Banana Smoothie Pie

Confession - baking is still a little intimidating for me. I love checking out the amazing baked creations on so many vegan blogs, with fancy icings and designs and other high baking art. These people clearly know what they're doing, and I salute the vegan baker-bloggers of the world. You rock. On the other hand, when I have a sweet tooth I have two standards: muffins, or making a filling for my beloved graham cracker pie crusts. Here's the latest entry, a pie-based celebration of the strawberry-banana smoothie. I'll get around to posting a vegan tiramisu any day now, just wait.

This was adapted from the Pastry Cream recipe from The Joy of Vegan Baking, by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, a great ambassador for vegan baking. Unlike me. I whipped up that book's pastry cream/custard, mixed in a blended jumbo strawberry-banana smoothie, and chilled. It set up perfectly, and is topped here with a blended soymilk-banana-tofu-sugar mix. I find these pie pieces don't look like much in photos, so here's a slice of pie with Otter. Now that's art.

Holy pie!! It looks beautiful and extremely good! If you don't watch Otter, she's going to take a big ol' bite though! :)

It won't truly have success, I believe this way.
