I just put this together for a class I had last friday. We were going to do the date nut torte recipe but the woman said she had already made that recipe in a class. She said she wanted to do a dessert for her daughter’s baby shower coming up. “GREAT!” I said, “Let’s play/experiment with an easy pie.” And preceded to make this recipe.
Blend in a food processor until well combined. Will be a bit sticky. I didn’t have a pie plate so I used a spring form pan. With a rubber scraper or spoon, spread the crust on the bottom of the pie dish or pan. If the mixture sticks too much to the rubber scraper, run the scraper under cold water so it doesn’t stick anymore!
Simple pudding layer
• 1 avocado
• 8 medjool dates
• 2-4 Tbsp raw cacao powder
Put all the ingredients in a small food processor and blend until smooth. If the dates are firm, soak them in warm water to soften. Spoon out the pudding and spread onto the pie crust.
• fudge truffles
Assemble the rest:
Slice the bananas onto the pudding layer. Have fun and play with placement. I started to put a layer down and it reminded me of a sunflower. Cara suggested I cut some of the fudge truffles onto the pie so I sliced some up and put them on. Then for some color, I decided to put some raspberries down.
It was really sweet and fun and super duper easy. Do this recipe with your kids. This pie didn’t last very long at all. Like a day and a half.
