Blueberry Banana Cream Pie

A Berry Banana Pie

My amazing acrobatic, dancer, artist friend, Megan, has joined me on the raw food journey and has been the main inspiration for this decadent dish. She was also a great help as we prepared our layers of cream, blueberries, and bananas. We created this as we went, having only her grandma's blueberry banana pie to replace with an organic raw version. This pie will definitely now be in the rotation of delicious raw desserts and introduced to granny of course! 

1 -9in Pie
Prep Time
30 minutes
Freeze Time
1 hour
Tools Needed
Food Processor and/or Blender, Knife
Graham Cracker Crust
1 cup walnuts
1 cup macadamia nuts
2 cup flax seed ground
2 dates
2 tbsp coconut nectar
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
A pinch of Himalayan pink salt

- In a food processor process the walnuts and flax seed first until fine.
- Add in the dates and process again until fine.
- Add in the rest of the ingredients.
-In a glass pie dish smooth out the crust and for the walls it should be sticky enough that it formed walls in the food processor.

Cream Filling- Layer 1
1/2 cups cashews soaked for at least 1 hour
1 cup water
2 dates
1/4 cup coconut nectar
1/8 cup lemon
1 tbsp coconut butter
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
A pinch of Himalayan pink salt

- First process the cashews alone.
- Add in a tiny bit of water at a time while scraping the sides of the blender. The slower you add the water the creamier and more whipped it will become.
- Next add the dates continue to add in water slowly
- Add the rest of the ingredients.
- Pour the mixture onto your crust and leave the cream remains on the blender walls because we are going to use it for our blueberry filling and plus you don't have to do double dishes.

Banana Slices- Layer 2
2 bananas

- For a natural banana preservative squeeze lemon juice over the bananas.
- Cut the them into slices
- Lay them out covering the whole pie, double layering if necessary

Blueberry Filling- Layer 3
2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 tbsp lemon
2 dates
1/4 cup water

- Blend blueberries and lemon first
- Slowly add in water until smooth
- Add in the dates
- Pour on top of the banana layer

Top it off with bananas, fresh blueberries, or whatever you like!

I hope you all enjoy!
