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?

The only thing wrong with this recipe is the serving size (in the pic). I could eat four of those in one sitting and I'm fairly slim... I'm curious how all of us that are on a lowfat vegan diet aren't going to get fat eating all these yummy foods with nuts. I know nuts are good fat but ... how does that work? You're so thin. Is there a trick?

Do you have any suggestions to substitute the coconut flakes in the crust? I'm one of the rare people that doesn't like coconut or the texture the flakes give. I can handle the coconut oil fortunately. The recipe sounds amazing though!!

Hi Lisa, while for anyone else reading it I recommend they stick with the coconut in the crust because the results will be more reliable, you could try using hempseed hearts (slightly less than called for) instead of the coconut in the crust.  Hope this helps!

Made this yesterday and it's gorgeous. My base has resolutely remained crumbly though, despite all the ingredients and instructions being followed to the letter. How much (weight) is half cup of dates because I'm wondering if I just didn't put enough in? Still, gives me a fanstastic reason to make another pie straight away!!!

Hi Sarah, so glad you tried it!

Sometimes if it's too crumbly it might mean that it wasn't processed for quite long enough. Also, it could have been a bit low on the dates - if that was the case, that would make sense because the dates provide the "sticky!"

In order to activate the "stickiness" they do need to be processed for the optimal length of time. So it might have been a combination of those two factors - that's my guess anyway.

Hope this helps!

I am working my way through these recipes :) Have tried to go raw twice before and fell off the wagon big time because I just couldn't eat the recipes - and I wasn't ready for just fruit and salad. However... I've now made the raw egg salad (divine) the raw tuna (had it for lunch today!!) and the raw chicken salad and they were ALL wonderful!!! I really think I can do this now. Just made the pie - my first dessert - and the cream out of the blender is delicious. Can't wait till it freezes. Even my husband is becoming enthusiastic about this :)
I am SO glad I found your website

I love this recipe! I made it last week for after Church refreshments and it went down a storm.......I was shocked especially as the folk who enjoyed it most of all......turn their noses up at the idea of raw food and even more so if it's raw and vegan! I also tried your raw carrot cake (for us at home) and LOVED it. Totally yummy, very filling and just sweet enough to curb me searching for anything else and ruining my diet. Thank you :)

Elcook, wowee catergory is the best category there is! :) I like the idea of the two bananas. I think I will try that next time - especially since the topping is kind of thin and it gets gobbled up so fast :)

I made this today as a dessert for our dinner: vegan shepherdess's pie and braised chard with mustard vinaigrette. We loved it. Not too sweet, but creamy, cool, and lovely layers of texture. And a nice foil for the hearty dinner. I think the filling makes a nice custard/pudding before it's frozen. Soooo good. Thanks!
