Incredible!!! I used bananas, peaches, plums, pineapple, blueberries & strawberries. For the crust, I used sticky mejool (sp?) dates which were wonderful. It worked well to chop them up with a big knife and sprinkle them with almond flour and chop some more - the dates were too sticky for the Cuisinart. I used too much prune juice so the crust was a little too wet. Next time I'll use just enough moisture to be able to press it into a pie plate. I had almond flour so I used that along with sunflower and sesame seeds. Next time though I'll chop my own almonds, the flour's a little too fine (and expensive...) None of the so-called "mistakes" mattered though. This Raw Pie is so good. You really won't believe it til you taste it! And (as long as you use unsweetened coconut and don't add sugar), this is SUPER healthful but you will go crazy over how good it is! I ate it for breakfast the next day. I will make this again!!!!
I was going to make this out of just cherries and bananas, but then my step-son came over and gobbled up half my cherries. It was his birthday so I let him. lol. I didn't want to make a special trip for more cherries, so I used a mango. For the sauce, I used half a banana, 2 cherries, and about 1/4 of the mango. It was really good! I didn't use any coconut but I did use the ground flax seed. I don't think it added anything (flavor-wise) and may have detracted. I probably won't put it in again. I will try different combinations. Have to recommend the banana-mango-cherry combo! Yummy stuff! Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC tag.
This was absolutely delicious, but now I'm impatiently waiting for summer when local fruits will be in season, & then . . . As it was I used a mix of nuts & seeds in the crust & almost always use Medjool dates when dates are called for! The sliced fruits included banana, kiwi, blueberries & some thawed frozen peaches & mango! Couldn't have been better, unless (as I said above) I were using fresh summer fruits locally grown!
