Raw Banana Creme Pie

Ok, I had to do it! With all of these new raw vegan dishes coming at me lately that are so close to the dishes I would normally eat, but even better, I had to try and recreate the classic banana cream pie. I had no idea what I was getting into or what I was doing. It was my first time making a raw vegan dessert ever! But with the help of my blender and some yummy superfoods I made it happen. And now you can too! Remember this is something I played around with, so don’t be afraid to get creative and make it your own. Have fun!

Pie Crust:

1 cup cashews

1 cup coconut chips

1 cup mulberries

1/4 cup honey ( you can use 1/2 cup of raw vegan raisins)

Pie Filling:

1 jar coconut crème ( 9 oz )

1/2 to 3/4 cup coconut milk

2 bananas

Pie crust directions: Combine mulberries, cashews, coconut chips, and honey in a blender, or a food processor if you have one available. Blend well however mixture should not be runny as we are molding it to our pie pan. After you have done that pop your pie crust in the fridge while you start your pie filling.

Pie filling directions: In a large bowl place coconut creme, coconut milk, and one banana. Mix well, by hand with a whisk or with an electric mixer. Slice the second banana and set aside. Spread a thin layer of your creme mix on your pie crust. Then a layer of sliced bananas. Continue this until the pie is full. You can sprinkle cacao nibs, cashews, or any of your favorite topping to really make this pie your own. Pop in the fridge once again for about 10 mins. Enjoy with friends and family.

  1. Ok, so I was on my juice cleanse when Jenn brought this tempting, amazing Raw Banana Coconut Cream Pie into the warehouse…I held strong and watched as everyone else devoured it! Once my cleanse was over I had to make it, especially after seeing the blog post up, and it is so easy and delicious. I like my pie filling a little more set and firm and when I went back for seconds…oh, about 30 minutes later, it was just how I like it! Yummm!
