Rating4/5 (from 1 ratings)4
2 cups raisins (these may be soaked for 1-2 hours to soften)
2 cups walnuts
½ cup carob powder (Optional: 1/4 to 1/2 cup carob powder, if you're really looking for an authentically fudgey taste. Begin with 1/4 cup, blend and add until you reach the desired taste)
4 to 5 bananas
1 cup unsweetened coconut (shredded)
½ cup apple juice (raw or juiced)
2 teaspoons tahini
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
1. In a food processor, combine raisins and walnuts and blend until moist and fudgey looking (this may turn into a ball—that’s okay, just make sure you can still see pieces of the walnut. This should not look grainy from too much processing).
2. To give this an even fudgier taste, try adding a bit of carob powder. This may not be necessary, because the raisins and walnuts really do provide that effect.
3. Remove the mixture from the food processor and mold onto a plate or pie pan.
4. Mash 2 bananas and place in a blender or food processor with the apple juice, ½ cup of coconut, tahini, honey, and vanilla. Blend until smooth. Remove from food processor and place in a bowl.
5. Slice the remaining bananas and mix into the filling, leaving a few to arrange on top of the pie.
6. Pour mixture onto crust, arrange banana slices, and sprinkle the remaining coconut on top.
7. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg for decoration.
8. Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes prior to serving. Slice and serve.

This dessert was inspired by a combination of two recipes. The resulting dish is a fudgey, banana-filled addiction!
Your friends will be amazed by this dish—just be careful not to eat the entire pie in one sitting!
Live food recipe that tastes like the real thing.
