Poʻe or Poke is a confection originating from Eastern Polynesia, usually eaten as a dessert. Traditionally Po'e was made by cooking and mashing bananas into a smooth consistency and mixed together with arrowroot flour. The mixture was wrapped in banana leaves and baked in an Earth oven until set into a pudding-like consistency, cut into smaller pieces and served together with coconut cream. More modern takes on the recipe replace bananas with other fruits such as papaya, mango or squash and using cassava or cornstarch as the thickening agent.
