Raw Banana Vegan Cream Parfaits with Salted Allspice Caramel

Banana Cream Pie has long been a favorite of mine. I love how refreshing the bananas and cream are together. I have made quite a few raw “cream” pies but always used coconut oil or butter to give structure to the filling. This time, wanting a lighter version, I used Irish Moss. I am thrilled with the results. I was able to cut back the cashews by 1/2 cup and also eliminate 1/2 cup of coconut oil. The resulting filling is light, refreshing, creamy and delicious. The addition of the salted allspice caramel and pecan crumble put this one over the top. Think banana pudding meets caramel!

    Susan, thank you for your feedback. I think I may be doing something wrong with my Irish Moss. It starts out in flakes, I soak it and then blend it, there is no rinsing involved. After this it is still brown…not white. I would greatly appreciate some more insight into my Irish Moss dilemma, as there are so many things that I want to make that include it.

    Thank you again for all your help and wisdom. 🙂

    Keegan…Irish Moss starts out exactly like you describe. The picture is after it has been soaked and rinsed. Cheers!

    I have a question about Irish Moss. I have some but it is brown and smells like, well…fish. I purchased it from Mountain Rose Herbs, as it seems that it was the only kind on there. It’s scientific name is Chondrus crispus. What is the difference between the kind you show in yout post about Irish Moss and the kind I have? Can I use what I have for this recipe without it taking like seafood? Thanks so much for your help!

    I have lots of frozen bananas in my freezer right now. I think I need to try this recipe. I always love your recipes and your food pictures. I aspire to have amazing pictures like you but I am not there quite yet.

    That dessert looks amazing and that Irish Moss looks creepy and alive. LOL
