Sweet Tooth: Berries N Cream
Happy Friday! I hope you've had a marvelous week. The Great White North has been hit with an early summer (July temperatures in May), so I'm pretty stoked. The only problem is that the lake level is super low right now, but it should come up with a few days of hard rain (I'm hoping for just enough that we can bring the floating dock around) - otherwise I'm more than content with extreme dry heat. My yoga mat and rebounder are now permanently outside for the rest of the season!
Today's sweet escape is on the fruity side. It's been so hot around here that fruit is the name of the game. Our local abundance is berries, so I'm sure to keep the freezer full of them for the winter. Fortunately there's plenty from last year, and they've gotta be used up before the fresh crop arrives.
This shake is light and delicious.
Choose berries of your choice, preferably frozen for a frosty drink!
1/2 cup young coconut water
1/2 cup young coconut pulp
1/2 cup strawberries or raspberries
1/2 cup blackberries
1/4 cup blueberries
2 medjool dates, pitted
Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy.
This oldie is from August, last summer. I catered mini raw cakes for a wedding, and had some left overs to create this delicious fruit tart. Check out all the cute cakes HERE. I think it makes an excellent entertaining dessert!
Chill the tart in the fridge or freezer until the filling has set.
