Aaah, a nut-free recipe! I am sure many of you have noticed how nut-laden most raw desserts have become. Where there is nothing wrong with that, nuts are very healthy for us, but there is a special group of people who have allergic reactions to nuts. One of these “people” is my dear brother in-law. So off I went on a journey to find a special dessert just for him. Shew, and what a journey that was. It’s not easy to find such a thing, even in the massive Google Land.
But, through persistence I found a recipe from Sunnyrawkitchen.blogspot.com. I made some revisions in my own recipe and I encourage you to do the same. I did however have to create my own recipe for a nut-free crust. I just couldn’t find any. If you read this post and have a really good nut-free recipe please let me know. I would love to try and post it, if you do.
As the end result in making this recipe, my brother in-law told me it gets an A+!! It was a great hit with the rest of the family as well. I sent the remaining pie home with my brother in-law and he polished it off. Keep in mind that you could get several desserts out of this recipe. You could make a pie, as I did or you could make a parfait, layering all these recipes, just have strawberry pudding or just chocolate pudding. Possibilities are within you just waiting to be created!
So turn on some music, put your dancing shoes on (what? you don’t dance around in the kitchen as I do?) and have fun creating something healthy and delicious for your loved ones.
Nut- Free Crust:
Wrap the base in plastic wrap.
Evenly and firmly press the crust into the base and part way
up the sides if you wish to.
Plop the chocolate later onto the crust…
Spread evenly and set aside…
The strawberry mixtures has a looser texture than the chocolate,
that’s ok. Pour over the chocolate and evenly spread.
Place in the fridge overnight to chill and firm up.
Once the surface is firm, decorate.
