Simple Chocolate Coconut Cake w/Banana

I came up with this absolutely delicious recipe last night, when trying to figure out what to do with my coconut meat. I had extra coconut meat that I had put in the freezer for another time. I originally took it out two days ago and realized that I needed to use it quick or it would go bad. So, I decided to make a cake. This recipe took me about 20 minutes, and it turned out RAWSOME! I shared it with several of my co-workers and they were impressed! These are non-raw foodies too! Try it for yourself. I think you too will agree that it is the BOM! 🙂

Ingredients:
Meat from 2 Thai coconuts (about 1 ½ to 2 cups)
2 scoops cacao powder (about ½ to ¾ cups)
¼ cup lucuma powder
1T coconut butter
¼ or little more cup coconut oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
¼ cup or more agave nectar
1tsp raw honey
4-6 drops clear SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia
1 tsp. cinnamon

2 bananas peeled and sliced

Crust:
1 ¼ cups raw cashews (not soaked)
6-8 pitted dates
dash of sea salt
3T to ¼ cup agave nectar

Preparation:
For the crust – place ingredients in the food processor and blend until sticky crumb like, and then press into a cake or pie pan. Slice the bananas and layer them over the cake crust.

For the cake filling – place all the ingredients in the food processor, or high-speed blender, and mix until super smooth and creamy. Pour over the bananas and crust, cover with saran wrap and freeze for about 1 hour before serving. Keep frozen or refrigerated for storage.
