Alright, so to make up for the lack of recipes in my last post, here are two desserts that I've made in the past week...what I call "throw togethers", lol. Because of this, I don't have exact measurements of anything.
Triple Berry Pie
(Can you tell, this was an Easter treat?)
Crust: sunflower seeds, almonds, dates, coconut, and a pinch of sea salt
Process all ingredients into a crumbly mixture and then press into the bottom of a pie plate or springform pan. Next, add a layer of sliced bananas (if desired - I love this).
Filling: blueberries, raspeberries, blackberries, coconut oil, raw honey, cashews
Blend all ingredients until completley smooth and creamy. Pour over the bananas and crust. Chill until the filling can hold it's shape.
Top with berries, more sliced banana, nuts, or whatever you enjoy.
(I've topped mine with little bits of raspberries)
(Here are you can see the banana in between the crust and filling)
Parfaits The other evening we had a few friends over for a visit. Of course this is just an excuse to have dessert, LOL. With only a small amount of time, I whipped up two puddings and served them in martini glasses, layered with a nut crumble.
Apricot Vanilla Cream- A blend of soaked apricots and their soak water, macadamia nuts, raw honey, and pure vanilla extract (that a friend recently brought me from Mexico, yay!)
Berry Cream- A blend of blueberries, raspberries, cashews, agave, lemon juice, water, and sea salt
Nut Crumble- A mixture of almonds, pecans, dates, and dried apricots
So let me be Rachael Ray for a minute and say "A great dessert is never more than 30 minutes away!" Remember that.
