Ingredients

One 9-inch pre-made pie shell

3 medium bananas, sliced 1/2 inch thick 

1/3 cup sugar 

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

Pinch salt 

1 lime, juiced 

1 3/4 cups guava nectar 

3 tablespoons cornstarch 

2 tablespoons unsalted butter 

Coconut ice cream, for serving 

Directions

  1. Bake the empty pie shell according to the package directions; cool completely. Arrange the banana slices in the pie shell. Combine the sugar, cinnamon, salt, lime juice, and 1 1/2 cups of the guava nectar in a small saucepan and bring to a bare simmer over medium heat.
