Strawberry/Banana Pie

Hi everyone, I'm a newbie, I don't know the rules - do we have to follow the recipe exactly (I often go with what I have and adapt). But, I was inspired by the Raw Strawberry Banana Pie recipe and I had most of the ingredients.

First of all - the crust - I was all out of almonds and walnuts, but I did have some pecans, and some graham crackers ( so there you go. I put the graham crackers, pecans, dates (btw - my food processor did not like the whole dates - I'll chop them up next time) I got about 1 1/2 cups of crust and it was nice and moist and held together. I'll definitely use the dates again.

Then the filling - I had all of the ingredients, but my strawberries were frozen. So I decided to include them in the filling, instead of putting them on top - Oh, and I only had three bananas - so that made up for the rest of the liquid in the filling. It tasted yummy before it went into the pie shell.

And it tasted really yummy as dessert a couple of hours later.

Hello to everyone--I'm Sarah. I just joined a couple of days ago, and I'm excited about messing around with some new recipes. I am intrigued by the whole raw food thing, but I must admit I am more interested in baking up something sweet at the moment. Something adventurous..

Anyway, I look forward to cooking with all of you!
