i decided to make it extra special ! by adding fresh cut strawberries & drizzling dark chocolate! anyone that tries this will fall in l.o.v.e. with you.

its an easy 2 step blend process – then freeze.

PIE CRUST:

1 cup pecans

1 cup dried, unsweetened coconut

1/2 cup dates

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

crustingredients

add the ingredients to your vitamix or food processor until the mixture sticks together & the dates are well processed. next place the crust mixture into your pie dish. press the crust down firmly with your hands.  & your crust is finished !

BANANA FILLING:

2 medium bananas

3/4 cup pecans

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/3 cup coconut oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/8 teaspoon sea salt

piefilling

mix the banana filling ingredients together in your blender until its creamy & smooth. then pour banana cream filling onto the crust. smooth out with the back of a spoon.

this is what it should look like after taking both steps:

    • they are like natures candy ! healthy yet naturally sweet ! fresh market should def have them- i got mine at publix though. just ask someone that works there for dates ! buying them pitted is much easier ! otherwise you have to pick the big seed out of them & their really sticky ! they look like an over-sized raisin to me !
