Carob Pie is the name that has stuck with this delicious favourite in our household. Its a bit like a chocolate mousse pie (my children were delighted at the idea of moose pie!)
If you want to get your children or hubby to eat banana or avocado – here’s how:
This is a non-bake pie – just blend and freeze and eat in slices as you need.
For the crust:
- I use a seed / coffee bean grinder to grind up some honey-muesli and put it into the food processor – about 4 cups
- Add about 4 T coconut oil and 4 T honey.
- Blend with the food processor – you need to taste and check the consistency to see when it is ready. It should be sweet and slightly gooey – just enough to cling together as a pie crust. Add more honey for sweetness and moisture if necessary.
- No need to grease – just press into a glass pie dish and your crust is done.
Now for the delicious filling:
- In a clean food processor (this is too thick for a blender) blend together until smooth:
- 2 avocadoes
- 4 bananas
- 1-2 T of Tahini (sesame seed paste – optional but wonderful protein)
2. Add about 4T carob powder (keep adding until its a lovely chocolate brown colour
3. Add a couple of tablespoons of maple syrup (also to taste) and blend until its really smooth and creamy
4. Spoon over the crust and spread with a spatula
5. Freeze your pie and cut slices to serve (best when cold but not completely frozen)
