Frozen Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Banana Pie

Chocolate. Peanut Butter. Banana. All together. In a pie. Heavenly.

But perhaps the best thing about this pie is that it is no bake. A delicious, frozen pie perfect for those hot days. Or any day, really :).

Frozen Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Banana Pie

Recipe adapted from Chocolate Covered KatieAlmost Fearless Kitchen and Choosing Raw

Crust:

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 10 small dates

Chocolate Filling:

  • 2 ripe avocados, chopped
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3-4 tbsp agave nectar

Peanut Butter & Banana Filling:

  • 2 large bananas
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

First off, you need to make your crust. Add all of the crust ingredients together in a food processor and blend until combined. Press into a pie pan and set aside.

Next, clean out your food processor and allow it to dry. Then add your chocolate filling ingredients (avocado, milk, cocoa powder and agave) in the food processor and blend until smooth.

Pour the chocolate filling into the pie crust and smooth. Stick in the freezer for at least 2-4 hours. You want the layer to harden up.

Then, cut up the bananas and place on a baking sheet. Stick in the freezer for 1-2 hours.

Once the bananas have frozen, add them to a food processor, along with the peanut butter and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.

I opted to drizzle my cake in melted chocolate, but you can omit this if you wish.
