This being raw, vegan and gluten free with no sugar added means almost ANYONE should be able to enjoy this. So get your apron and bowls and let's get to it!
*whine* the boring part...
Overnight soak a cup of dates and a bag of cashews. I use about 2 cups of cashews. Just toss them in a bowl and fill it with water, cover with a lid or plastic wrap. If you want this NOW, let them soak for a few hours at least before making. Also, pop a can of coconut cream into the fridge. This will firm up and be ready to whip up for a delicious creamy topping.
Ripe, super duper brown spotty bananas are best for recipes like this.
Vegan Gluten Free Raw Banana Freezer Pie:
2 Cups soaked cashews
1/2 c. lemon juice
1/2 c. coconut oil
cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg
1 c. dates soaked
3/4 c. dried shredded coconut
1 can REAL coconut cream
Take your brown spotty beautiful bananas and toss them in a mixing bowl, I used about 3-4 bananas. add about 3/4 C. to 1 C. of your soaked cashews, 1/2 C. lemon juice, a tiny bit of lemon zest, 1/2 C. coconut oil, sprinkling of sea salt, a few dashes of cinnamon, vanilla bean and nutmeg.
Now, blend, blend, blend really well. I tossed it all into my Vitamix and pulsed it until it was smooth and creamy.
Next, head over to your food processor and toss in your dates, remaining cashews (about 1 C. add pinches of cinnamon and sea salt. Toss in 3/4 C. Dried coconut and blend! It should star to look like a crumbly crust texture. Scrape into a pie dish and press in ad shape. Pop in the freezer for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, take out your pie crust and fill with the Vitamix Banana blend and pop back into the freezer.
For the Raw Caramel sauce I drizzled and froze it but I feel it would taste much better over the whipped topping, all runny and gooey. YUM!
So go ahead and take your coconut cream out of the fridge and open the can. Scrape just the firm, white coconut cream into a mixing bowl and use a hand mixer to beat until all whippy and good!
Take your pie out, cut a slice for yourself and plop a big spoonful of this sinful whip on top. sprinkle on some cinnamon and add some of your favorite chopped nuts. If you think you can handle anymore, add this caramel on top. Please note the caramel has added sweetener:
Raw Caramel Sauce:

1/2 C.agave or maple

and about 1/2 C. Raw almond butter
Oh, my lord. Deliciousness.
