Ice Cream Pies in the Skies
- Makes : any size pie
These pies are so easy to make and they are so good... and you can eat them for breakfast with no guilt whatsoever! - Yum! Pies that are actually good for you.
- walnuts (twice as many walnuts as almonds)
- raw agave sweetener, dash or two / or dates, soaked and pitted
- sea salt, pinch
- bananas, peeled and frozen
- raw agave sweetener, to taste (you don't need much)
- pinch salt
- dash vanilla
- raw agave
- raw tahini, optional
In food processor, blend walnuts, almonds and sea salt until flour like. Add a dash of agave and blend. If crust sticks together when you press it with your fingers it's good, if not add another dash of agave. Press this into a lined cake pan and set aside. Optional - add a touch of cinnamon or other spices of choice when processing crust.
Cut frozen bananas into pieces and blend with above ingredients in food processor. When smooth all the way through, fill pie crust with this ice cream filling and immediately put in the freezer. Cover and freeze over night.
Before you take the pie out of the freezer; mix together the Cacao Drizzle ingredients in a small cup until desired consistency. Drizzle a little over the top of each piece. Garnish with berries, a flower, or mint leaves and serve. These pies are delicious plain as well.
For Cacao Cream Pie just add cacao, to taste, with a touch more sweetener while blending the filling ingredients. Optionally add a few tablespoons raw tahini as well for a creamier consistency. Or add raw carob to the basic recipe for the Charob Ice Cream Pie.
