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?

Fi's Review

Raw banana cream pie recipe

5 out of 5

Oh my god! This pie is divine!
I added pure maple instead of honey, and 2/3 pecans to the base instead of all cashew.
And wow, so delicious. My husband who is a cheesecake lover and not big on health food also found this delicious.
Bravo!

Is there anything I can use in place of the dates? I want to try this recipe for Easter this weekend but my family isn't much for healthy and even I don't care for the taste of dates too much.

Hi Betsi,

I promise, you cannot even taste the dates in this recipe.

You know how traditional cakes contain eggs? But they don't taste like eggs? Same kinda thing :) the dates just are used for sweetness and stickiness. Trust me :)

Hello. Can anybody tell me if I should soak the cashews for the cream part? Thanks!

No sorry Christina - the coconut oil is integral - it's what will help the recipe harden and solidify properly in the freezer

Got all the ingredients at home, am going to make it tomorrow for the bday of my dad, who is a banana-pie freak (but not so much into the health/raw stuff, so curious about his opinion!).
Just one question, how big is the pie crust/glas dish you are preparing it in?
Thanks a lot by the way for your great recipes, I love them xx

Atsumi Raw Cafe's Review

Raw banana cream pie recipe

Just made this dessert, it's just been placed in the freezer.

Instead of dates I used raisins and cranberries. Also, in the base I added macadamias, and in the filling I added almonds and goji berries.

So, a slight variation on what is already a brilliant recipe! Can't wait to try it.

Avocado would also be good for the filling, I think.

Beiha's Review

Raw banana cream pie recipe

5 out of 5

I cannot even begin to say how amazing this recipe is. I made it for the second time on Sunday and even thought I didn't quite have enough dates and the base turned out a bit crumbly rather than cohesive (my fault as I forgot to buy extra dates), it turned out even better than last time - I am embarassed to admit I had two slices and I think I saw my husband sneak another portion in. It is SO damn tasty. The first time I made it I took it to a party, and my friend and I stayed in the kitchen eating the scraps from the pie dish rather than joining in the party ..

Such a great desert! The first raw desert I've made and it was brilliant! Everyone in my family enjoyed it and said they could just keep eating it! My partner who is normally the cook said it's the best desert he's eaten in a long time! So simple and easy to follow! My perfect type of food! Also, being lactose intolerant, great desert without losing the fun :) hopefully it hasn't got too much fat or calories ha :) thanks so much x

Hi I was wondering if there is any recommended substitution for the coconut

Hi Allison,

In the crust, you could use hempseed hearts instead of the coconut. You could also use more cashews instead.

That being said, the coconut in the crust will give you the best texture, so use that if you can
