Raw Crepes with Berries and Cashew Cream

Don't let this mouthwatering picture deceive you by it's lovely gourmet 

composition into thinking this is a complicated recipe.

It is actually very simple and only requires 4, yes only 4, ingredients! 



2 large bananas
2 handfuls of cashews
4 dates
5 or 6 strawberries
Simply blend up the bananas then spread the mixture out onto teflex sheets thinly and dehydrated until they were pliable and no longer sticky
Blend up the cashews and the dates together with a little water and this tasty simple cream will formed
Blend strawberries in a food processor
That's it!!! You could add some additional sweetener to the coulis if desired, but I found that the natural sugar in ripe strawberries provided plenty of sweetness for our pallets.
Place the berries on the crepe and topped with the cashew cream filling then wrapped it all up firmly. I added the strawberry coulis at the last minute before serving
