Very easy recipe using bananas as a substitute for real poi. Tastes better than real poi too.


  1. Mash bananas until a smooth paste is formed.
  2. Add the lemon juice.
  3. Gradually add the coconut cream, stirring constantly.
  4. Chill and serve in glasses.

This is great! It is so simple and tasty. I used a little less coconut cream than the recipe. I just ate it with chicken and rice and it was lovely. I can imagine doing many different things to vary it.....limes, coconut milk, adding spices, for example red pepper flakes or cinnamon, depending on what I want to serve it with. Maybe I need to have a luau now.

I love banana poi. So happy that this is posted on here! I'm not keen on poi, so this is a great alternative :)
