- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- 1 cup prunes (about 16)
- Pinch of salt
- 16 oz. bag of frozen cauliflower (thawed at room temperature)

- 1 tbsp. almond butter (optional, but adds richness)

For the crust, process oats, coconut and salt on high in a food processor. While running, add prunes 1-2 at a time until the crust begins to come together and pulls away from the bowl. Press into a springform pan. Chill in the refrigerator or freezer while making the filling.
Add the rest of the ingredients in a high speed blender, minus the bananas, until combined. Remove the crust from the refrigerator or freezer and slice a banana and layer on top of the crust. Pour the filling over the bananas. Lightly sprinkle with date or coconut sugar. Place the pie in the freezer for one hour. Remove and store in the refrigerator.
Mix 1/4 cup melted coconut oil, 1/4 cup cocoa powder and 2 tbsp. coconut nectar (optional), and drizzle on top.

This whipped cream is healthier for you, less expensive and tastes better than any whipped cream that comes from a supermarket. Hands down, this whipped cream is the WINNER!
