I used some of them to make the following pie; delicious, light, and nutless to boot!
Nutless Strawberry Chocolate Pie
Banana slices, tossed in a little lemon juice
I used Heathy's Nutless Chocolate Creme which will be in her upcoming 'Just Desserts' ebook.* However any avo-based chocolate cream/mousse recipe would do, such as the following from Anna of Purely Delicious's Chocolate Mousse Tarts.
2 small ripe avocados, peeled and seeds removed
1/2-3/4 C raw agave nectar
1/4 C raw cacao powder
1 T. coconut butter or oil
1 T alcohol-free vanilla
Dash of sea salt and cinnamon (optional)
Place all ingredients in a high-powered blender and process until smooth and creamy. Chill until ready to assemble.
This filling was inspired by a pudding Heathy once posted here.
1/2 lb strawberries
1 small banana
3 Medjhool dates
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp pure almond extract
Agave or honey, to taste (I added about 1 tsp)
2 tbs melted coconut butter or oil
1 tbs lecithin powder
Blend all but the last 2 ingredients in high-speed blender until smooth. Add coconut oil and lecithin and blend some more.
Line the bottom and sides of a 9" pie plate with a layer of banana slices.
Pour the Chocolate Filling, followed by the Strawberry Filling.
Set in the fridge.
If desired, serve with fresh strawberry slices and your favorite chocolate sauce. (I used some left-over chocolate coating for my Caramel Turtles.)
Carmella's Note: You could easily replace the bananas with your favorite nut crust.
* Both Heathy and I have received a number of inquiries as to when her Just Desserts ebook will be available. I can't give you an exact date at this point as I'm still in the process of formatting/editing the ebook, but it should definitely be before the end of the year. If you've enjoyed her recipes so far, then you will be blown away by the some 65 dessert recipes featured in her upcoming book.
Keep an eye here or on Heathy's blog to find out when it's ready to hit the virtual shelves!
