Raw Banana Cream Pie

From the archives :: Recipe originally posted on Natural Living Cuisine

Creamy and delicious, this Banana Cream pie is perfect for pie enthusiasts and those of us who love bananas. I had a taste for a banana inspired dessert, so I revisited this yummy recipe that I created last year.

I remember this pie was a hit with my family so this time around I’m doubling the recipe to make two pies. One will stay here at the house and the other I’ll offer to my father’s house when we go to visit tomorrow.

Banana Cream Pie with Sweet Walnut Crust

The crust for this recipe is sweet, but not overly sweet. Making this pie is a pleasure for the senses. When peeling open and slicing this fruit, the air is perfumed with the lovely scent of fresh organic bananas, while the taste buds anticipate the creamy end result.

Sweet Walnut Crust:

1 cup walnuts
¾ cup chopped dried apricots
¼ [2-3] chopped dates, or raisins
1/3 cup agave

Cream Filling:

1 cup cashews
2 bananas
½ vanilla bean or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoons phylum husk powder, optional

Topping:

2 - 3 bananas, cut into ½ inch rounds

For Sweet Walnut Crust:

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.

For Topping:
