How To Make A Raw Vegan Banoffee Pie

The simply marvellous Banoffee Pie! A classic British dessert made up of a caramel, bananas and coconut cream. Our version is clean, raw, vegan, refine sugar free and gluten free. 

Each mouthful is not only delicious but we can make a case that it's good for you too. The caramel is made from dates which are rich in dietary fibre and iron. Bananas are an excellent source of potassium and again fibre. Cashews are high in protein and healthy fats and the coconut cream is full of healthy fats as well as being a great dairy alternative to cream. We think the Queen herself would approve.

This gluten free dessert recipe can be made into a large single pie or smaller individual pies.
