Raw Strawberry Cremesauce Pie

This was the first dessert I made since starting my Raw diet kick. It may not look too picturesque, but its pure deliciousness more than compensates for the goopy appearance. I went off of a recipe from RawOn10, using a walnut-banana crust, strawberry-agave filling, and walnut-date creme on top. I used frozen strawberries, which contributed to the wet, sauce-like consistency.


3/4 c banana slices
1 c walnuts
pinch salt    
   ---->; blend in food processor

Strawberry filling:
8 oz strawberries
dash lemon juice
3 tbs agave (/to taste)
  ---->; puree in food processor, then, Add:
8 oz strawberries, chopped

Walnut creme:
1/4 c walnuts
2 dates
1/2 c water
1/2 tsp vanilla
dash salt          ----> puree until creamy

To assemble, first spread crust mixture in the bottom of a plate/pie pan using a fork/spoon. Next, pour in strawberry mixture for filling. Finally, dollop walnut creme on top. If desired, sprinkle on shredded coconut for a final touch.

To avoid each serving becoming a yummy little pile of sweet goo, try freezing the pie. I however, was perfectly fine with the messy version- just serve in a bowl with a spoon!
