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!

    I’m eating this right now. So yummy! It was pretty easy. I added a half banana to the cream in addition to the sliced bananas. To those who might be interested, you can make coconut butter by taking shredded dried coconut and blending it in a food processor a la almond butter. Great recipe!

    I’m allergic to cashews and almonds! Is there a good substitute for that in this recipe? It looks amazing. Love your site! Thank you so much.

    OUTSTANDING!!! What a delicious treat! As far as the prep, opening the coconut was a challenge for me. My darling husband did it. Don’t know what I would have done without him! Oh my goodness…. The coconut water is SO sweet & delicious, as is the coconut flesh…wow! I could eat one of those babies every day. The Irish Moss was something totally new to me. What an interesting substance. I love that it’s loaded with an abundance of minerals. I’m anxious to try it on my skin, and I intend to incorporate more of it in my diet now. Thank you so much, Susan!

    I had the pleasure of eating one of these at Susan’s last week and spoonful after spoonful had me sighing in exquisite pleasure ~ it was *that* good. The caramel? Oh my goodness the caramel…and the caramel with the salt? Pure heaven.

    In its natural state, how is the moss stored and what is the shelf life? I can’t wait to make this parfait.

    Wow, who knew you could make such a delicious dessert out of EVERYTHING raw! I just started following your blog and I am AMAZED not only how delicious everything looks but how nutritious everything is for you. I will admit though, that Irish Moss freaks me out but I cannot wait to get my hands on some to try out this recipe. Thank you Susan!
