Paleo Strawberry Banana Pie

INGREDIENTS 
Crust
1 ½ c. almond flour

¼ c. melted butter

1 tbsp lemon juice

½ tsp vanilla extract

3 eggs, beaten

2/3 c. coconut milk 

2 cups medium strawberries 
Blueberries (if you like)


PROCESS
1. Mix almond flour, butter, salt and cinnamon in a bowl.  Press mixture into a pie plate to form the pie crust.
2. Mix bananas, lemon juice, and vanilla extract either in a food processor or by hand (you’ll need to mash the bananas first if you mix by hand).   Then gently mix in coconut milk and eggs.

  1. I can't find a contact form, but I have kind of a crazy question for you. I notice you have a few good recipes and your images are decent but you haven't posted in a long time. I'm wondering if you would consider selling me the content and images on your blog and closing this blog down. I would put the recipes on my blog mynaturalfamily.com since I don't have time to develop the recipes on my own. I would also consider hiring you to write more new recipes for me if you would be interested in that. Let me know at rebecca@mynaturalfamily.com if you are interested.

  2. This pie is delicious. But the filing needs some sugar added. I made mine following the recipe (except the crust, I used another recipe) and though it was tasty it needed sugar. I also added 1 tsp of almond extract. I think if you serve it with ice cream you would not need to add sugar. Anyways, my family loved it and it turned out beautiful.

  3. I think the point is that it is paleo. For paleo families, if it isn't sweet enough, try blending in a few dates or honey. Natural and better for you :)
