This dessert was inspired by Blossoming Lotus Vegan World-Fusion Cuisine cookbook. I have to share the story of how I stumbled upon this beautiful beloved cookbook.My husband spent time in Kauai, HI learning the art of Structural Integration, also known as Rolfing. I'll do another post or book possibly about that subject, for now we'll focus on the food. :) While in Kauai he would eat at the Blossoming Lotus Cafe, enjoying tantalizing meals. Years later when we met, I was creating vegan and vegetarian meals. He told me about the Blossoming Lotus Cafe and would even call me his Blossoming Lotus. I was working in corporate america at the time and the gal who sat in the cubicle behind me used to be a vegan. She knew I experimenting with the new lifestyle change and mentioned she had a book she no longer used. She brought it in and gave it to me as a beautiful gift. It was shocking to see it was none other than the Blossoming Lotus cookbook from Kauai! I told my soon to-be husband and cooked him a meal to remember! I made Ms. Austin's Acorn Squash with Wild Rice Pilaf covered in Avalon's Magic Mushroom Gravy! It was incredible. Saturday I was looking for a different, healthy yet tasty pie for dessert with some new friends. I decided to pull out this book and see what I could find. I saw the picture for the Dream Weaver's Live Fruit Pie with the Tropical Bliss Out Pie filling! I adapted it adding a big twist of "Christa" to it! To start, a healthy and wholesome live pie crust made from cashews, dates, spices and brown rice syrup!
The Cherry Banana Cream Pie oh so blissful and creamy filling:
Topped with fresh organic fruit creating a Tropical Blossom in honor of the recipe!
Gluten-Free, Paleo, Raw & Vegan Pie Crust!
