Recipe Directions

  • 1. Place all crust ingredients in the food processor. Process until the mixture sticks together and the dates are well processed.
  • 2. Dump crust mixture into your pie crust/glass dish. Press the crust down firmly in your dish with your hands. (Crust is now done.)
  • 3. Add all banana filling ingredients to your blender. Blend until creamy and smooth.
  • 4. Pour banana cream filling onto the crust. Smooth out with the back of a spoon.
  • 5. Cover and throw in freezer. Ideally should be frozen overnight to firm up so that it can be sliced perfectly.
  • 6. This raw banana cream pie recipe should always be kept in the freezer. (It'll get soggy if in the fridge.)

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?

Denise, the best way to enjoy this recipe is to keep it frozen AT ALL times, then cut a frozen slice, leave the slice on the counter for 10 minutes and then eat. YUMMM

Interested in the raw food idea and this recipe sounds lovely but myself and my eldest son both have nut allergies. Any suggestions for nut alternatives in the recipes? Thanks

Hi Cath, in general, it can be difficult to substitute - although you may find my podcast on nut substitutions helpful: http://www.therawtarian.com/rfp05-nut-substitutions

The best advice I can give is to avoid "substituting" instead, look for recipes that do not contain nuts... This is because things are never quite right once you start to tweak recipes :)

In general, cashews are used to provide a "creamy" texture.

In this recipe, cashews in the base (crust) could be substituted for sesame seeds if those are acceptable to you,

For the actual cream pie, you need those cashews and no other nut/seed would do (other than macadamia, but I assume those are a no-go too). I would then look for a different banana cream pie filling recipe that doesn't use cashews, which shouldn't be too hard cause the "creaminess" can be fulfilled by bananas instead, since they are very creamy too

We made this pie yesterday... And it was gone in a day! It is absolutely delicious- even one of our 'not so healthy' friends could not believe how scrumptious it tasted- he was very glad afterwards that he had tasted the pie! Divine

I substituted 1/4 cup of almonds and 3/4 cup of walnuts for the 1 cup of cashews it asked for in the crust. I also added about 1/4 -1/2 cup more of dates, sprinkled a little cinnamon (about 1/4 tsp) and added approx 1/4 cup of coconut oil as well to make the crust stick together a little bit better for me. It was divine! You could have formed the crust into cookie balls and eaten them plain that way! I wasn't too much of a fan of the banana mixture on top. Next time I'll probably use just some frozen blueberries or strawberries and plain raw yogurt and make a mixture out of that. However, my family loved it. They inhaled the entire pie in 20 min! They asked if it could be their Sabbath dessert every week. That's saying a lot. Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipe!

I always sustitute cashews with a mixture of almonds and macadamias (or walnuts), the crispy side is contributed by the almond and the soft more creamy texture by macadamias or walnuts.

Hi Aly,  a great suggestion! In the crust you can substitute a wide variety of nuts (macadamia nuts, pecans, almonds or walnuts or a combo thereof) for cashews. In the banana cream filling part I would sub with macadamias only.

I actually used a combo of sunflower, hemp, cashews, and macadamia nuts. Since we were severely low on food at the time. It came out perfectly. I especially liked using the hemp seeds for that extra nutritional boost. I am going to make my own version of this recipe again using a combo of cashews and hemp seeds.
