Banana Cream Pie N’Oatmeal

  • Author: Rachel Marion
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 10 min
  • Total Time: 20 min
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x



  • 1 cup medium-shred unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream (see note)
  • 1/2 cooked white sweet potato (see note)
  • Pinch of salt


  • Toasted coconut flakes
  • Raw local honey
  • Edible flowers
  • Sliced banana


  1. Using a hand mixer, whip the ingredients (except for the toasted coconut flakes, honey, flowers, and additional banana slices for garnish) until the banana and sweet potato are fully incorporated into the coconut cream and shredded coconut.
  2. Spoon into serving bowls, top with the toasted coconut flakes, honey, flowers, and additional banana. Serve immediately.


I used Trader Joe’s coconut cream, chilled, which is solid rather than liquid. If you use the liquid cream from the top of a can of coconut milk, for example, you’ll need to add more coconut to balance it, and the result will be less sweet.

I used actual white sweet potato, roasted and then peeled, versus canned sweet potato purée. Canned purée would likely work, but will be looser and wetter than firm, starchy, fresh-roasted white sweet potato, and canned purée will darken the color of your n’oatmeal.
