Amazingly, we managed to find some organic strawberries at the store the other day, although no doubt that we're seriously getting out of season. My guess is that this is the last batch we'll get to enjoy for a while. *sigh*
I used some of them to make the following pie; delicious, light, and nut-less 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 choco cream/mousse would do, such as this one
I made a strawberry filling 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 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.)
