Fit Banoffee Pie
Fantastic, healthy no-bake Fit Banoffee Pie, after which everyone will lick their plate! It tastes even better than it looks and it is healthy as well. Inside you will find a delicious caramel made from dates and nut butter, which perfectly complements the taste of bananas and a soft cream from quark and ricotta on top. This no-bake cake is without flour and you can prepare it without added sugar (using dates, xylitol, or stevia).
Banoffee Pie is an English dessert that consists of a tasty dough (similar to a cheesecake), bananas, cream, and caramel. However, the classic recipe is full of unnecessary sugar, fat, and calories. That's why I have prepared this healthier and lighter version of this popular dessert for you. I had the opportunity to try both versions and I will tell you that this healthy recipe for Banoffee Pie tasted even better than the original version.
I must also mention that the preparation of this pie/cake is very simple and relatively fast, even a beginner will be able to do it. Since the cake is not baked, there is practically nothing that can go wrong.
Prepare this delicious caramel-banana-cream cake for a special event or just during the weekend, you will definitely not regret it. For me, this is probably the best healthy no-bake cake so far.
