The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

I was inspired to create this raw banana cream pie recipe for Christmas this year. It is soo smooth, so "banana creamy" and just absolutely perfect. (Can you tell I am on a freezer pie kick??)

It's actually pretty fast to make - just a quick food process and an easy blend. Even a crappy blender should be able to handle this raw recipe.

Using perfectly ripe bananas will give you that divine banana cream pie taste. (You want to use perfectly ripe bananas - not too green and not too brown.)

If you don't do honey you can do agave nectar or maple syrup instead of the honey. Use the same measurements.

Enjoy this raw banana cream pie recipe! Isn't it pretty?

Thanks so much for this recipe and for all the recipes on your site. :) Tried this one tonight and so far, I'm loving it! (well, I loved it before it went into the freezer, so I'm sure it will be amazing once it comes out) Just a side note for anybody out there who doesn't have fresh bananas, I ended up using 2 frozen bananas and the recipe still came out great! Had to "encourage" it a little more in my blender with a spatula (I used a Blendtec), but otherwise, it worked out well. I will have to make it again soon with fresh bananas (woe is me) to see if there's a big taste difference, but I loved the creamy banana filling that came out of my blender :)

Hi there! What size was the pie dish you used?

For pies, I usually use an 8" pie plate. But sometimes I get creative and use small springform pans. Try what you have and see what you like!

I'd like to use maple syrup instead of honey for the filling. Is that okay? Or coconut syrup. I don't use agave anymore and honey is SO expensive, because I only buy raw and unfiltered. Plus, I'm imagining that maple syrup would be delicious.

Greetings,
Just made this and it's heavenly best raw pie ever! I have a question the crust is stuck to the glass pie plate when I cut a slice and try to remove a slice. Did I perhaps pack it down too tight onto the pie plate?

Any advise would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for sharing,
Roger

it does need to be pressed down very hard into the bottom of the pan, so you didn't stick it too hard. next time u could try to line the dish/pan with parchment paper. (I don't do this normally, but it is an option. Also, you could try a different pan? mini springform works GREAT!

Ok thanks for the update! But what I tried for my second pie after it froze in the freezer I put it into the refrigerator to thaw and it actually tastes better and it's more creamy & the crust is softer and easy to remove a slice. I also mixed some smooth peanut butter with the filling and it's really good with the P-Nut butter.

This is a great way to use up bananas so different I like it - will it be OK in the freezer for more than a week? There is only 1 of me...and I can't eat the whole thing in a week!!

Hi CR! no - meal tends to be less fatty. So don't do that because the texture will change. Use whole or split cashews :)
