To prepare Coconut Whip Cream
- Refrigerate coconut milk, preferably overnight or at least for 4 hours.

- Chill in the refrigerator until ready to use.
To prepare Date Nut Crust:
- Place dates in a food processor and process until it becomes a paste.

- Place a heaping tablespoon of the crust into a pie dish and press down with your fingers.
To prepare Banana Filling:
- Heat a skillet over medium heat.
- Melt 2 tablespoons butter.
- Add bananas and palm sugar to pan in one even layer, allowing the bananas to caramelize, about 3-4 minutes.
- Flip bananas and add in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and cinnamon, cook for 2 minutes.
- Add optional rum, and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until bananas are brown and caramelized.
- Divide banana mixture evenly among pie dishes.
