National Origin: American

Serves: 8

Estimated Time: Over 2 Hours

Ingredients:

For the crust:
1½ cups raw almonds
20 pitted dates, soaked
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon pure vanilla
¼ teaspoon sea salt

For the filling:
1 cup natural peanut butter
2 ripe bananas
½ cup unsweetened almond milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla
¼ teaspoon sea salt

Optional toppings: cacao nibs, melted peanut butter, melted dark chocolate

Preparation:

1. In a food processor, process the crust ingredients together, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides. This should form a sticky mixture that holds together. If it is too crumbly, add a little water at a time.
2. Spread the crust mixture out over a parchment-lined pie dish.
3. Blend the filling ingredients together.
4. Pour the filling out over the crust and smooth with a spatula. Add toppings, if desired.
5. Freeze for at least 2 hours. Thaw on the counter for a couple of minutes before slicing and serving.
