Raw banoffee tart

Guilt free probiotic indulgence!

Get ready for one of the most luxurious, plant-based, probiotic desserts ever! It’s a healthy take on the excessively sugary traditional English, banana, cream and toffee pie with biscuit base. We’ve left the banana in but swapped out most of the other stuff. The good news for you and your gut bugs, is that this version is loaded with homemade coconut yogurt (instead of cream), sweet gooey Medjool dates (rather than caramel) and nutritious nuts to get you some crunch in the base. 

It is so damn healthy, you could seriously have this dessert for breakfast! Who needs caramelised, condensed milk when you have nature’s finest - ripe bananas and dates to sweeten your life? Trust me, this is a crowd pleaser, and it will be the perfect ending (or beginning) to your day.

This Banoffee uses our coconut yogurt made with Aroy-d coconut milk but it would work wonderfully well with any of our coconut yogurt methods found here on the Luvele recipe blog. The secret to the success of this raw tart is in thick set homemade coconut yogurt. You don’t want to use runny coconut yogurt or any of the separated coconut water – or else the nut base will become soft. If your coconut yogurt is on the runny side, strain it through a muslin cloth for 30 mins before-hand.

The tart is gluten free and vegan but the ingredients below have options to become Paleo, SCD and GAPS friendly. Any of the substitutions will still taste amazing.

Note: This recipe begins with whole nuts. The Luvele Vibe blender System has extremely powerful blades and motor that can grind whole ingredients. If you do not have a similar high-performance blender, we recommend making the base in a food processor.
