Raw Banana Crepe

Title: Banana Crepes
Tags: raw, breakfast

4 Bananas
juice from 1 lemon

Place bananas in food processor. Add lemon juice and process until liquid. Pour into 5″ rounds. These should only be about 1/8″ thick so spread mixture if necessary. Dehydrate overnight at 115. Do not over dry these. I start them just before I go to bed. You want them to be flexible. Makes 8 – 5″ rounds.
Spoon the Cashew Vanilla Cream into half the crepe. Top with berries and add more cream. Fold over and experience joy!
