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?

Atsumi Raw Cafe's Review

Raw banana cream pie recipe

5 out of 5

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.

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

Amazing. I was naughty and did them in little mini cupcakes and doubled the cream pie part as we were so busy licking the bowl before we had spooned it all out. Made 24 minis and 10 muffin sized.- probably more if we stopped eating

Raw banana cream pie recipe

Made this recipe for a baby shower this weekend, and it was a hit! I actually made "baby" banana cream pies by pressing the crust into tiny cupcake papers and pouring little bits of the filling into each one. I doubled the recipe so I have a few leftover, and they are wonderful to have in the freezer for when I just need a bite of something sweet!
Love your blog!

Looks like a great recipe and I'm keen to try it. However I'm on a low FODMAP diet, hence can't eat dates. Do you have any ideas of what I could substitute with?

Thanks!

Hi Annell, I've never heard of your diet, but you could use raisins or dried prunes instead of the dates in the crust, not sure if that'd work for you needs, but it's an idea anyway!

Thanks for your quick reply! The diet means that I avoid certain sugars which I can't tolerate. Unfortunately, raisins or prunes are a no-no as well. What function do the dates have in the crust?

Hi Anneli, In the crust the dates serve two functions: 1. sweetness 2. stickiness/holding-base-together... It's the stickiness/holding-base-together that will be an issue for ya methinks!

This is a genuinely perfect, delicious pie recipe. I also love making it with pecans for the crust instead of cashews.
I am going to try replacing the bananas with frozen cherries and seeing how that works for a gathering of friends in a couple days.
Of course, the original recipe will also be made, so that we have at least one guaranteed success.
Thank you, Laura-Jane!
