Tarte Choco-Banane

My first dessert will be "Tarte Choco-Banane"

Last night, I spent it preparing my raw desserts for a first time. Although I enjoyed it, but honestly, it is not quite easy to prepare it on a Friday night.
Tarte Choco Banane "Made with Love"

We start with the Crust preparation and then "un-cook" the filling.

The Crust:

1/4 t.s. Sea Salt
1/2 t.s. Vanilla Essence without Alcohol 

Coconut Flakes

Macadamia Nuts

Mixed with other ingredients
Add the Macademia nuts in a food processor to reduce their size to small pieces.

Add the other ingredients and mix until having a uniform crust, with which you will be able to create a ball look.
*Can be kept for 2 weeks in the refrigerator in an airtight container
The filling:

Preparation 15 minutes
Portions: 10
Equipment: Food processor and a blender
Cashew Nuts

Roll the crust into the bottom and edges of a pie pan of 22 cm diameter

In the food processor, reduce the cashew into powder.

Add the cashew powder into the blender, add all the ingredients excluding: Coconut oil and the Lecithine.

Mix until obtaining a smooth, uniform paste.

While mixing, add the coconut oil and the lecithine, mix for another 30 seconds.

Quickly pour into crust and refrigerate for about 4 hours, until the pie freezes
