Who else is ready for fresh produce?!?!? I am definitely ready for lighter foods, fresh fruits and veggies, and getting in the garden more. The cold is still trying to hang on tight here, but strawberry pickin’ is right around the corner and blackberries are close behind. This is the perfect dessert for your waistline and will leave you feeling guilt free.

 

 

Makes 3-4 Servings

  • ½ cup chestnuts
  • ½ cup almonds
  • 5-8 Medjool dates- pitted and soaked for 10 minutes
  • 1 drop doTERRA cinnamon oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon Himalayan Sea salt
  • 6-8 large organic strawberries
  • 1/2 cup organic blackberries

In a food processor, blend dates once they become soft. Don’t soak to the point where they begin to get mushy. Pulse dates into small chunks. Add date mixture to a bowl.
Add chestnuts, almonds, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pulse again in the food processor until finely ground. Pour nut mixture over the dates and massage together, till you have a nice crumble. Slice strawberries and place on separate plates. Put crumble on bottom add strawberries and blackberries. Add a pinch of sea salt, to enhance sweetness. Serve immediately. You can also make a larger batch and keep the “crumble” in the fridge for up to 5 days. Just add the berries when you’re ready to eat! Guiltless dessert!!

  1. Wow! Now we’re talking! This sounds fantastic and the only thing I need to source, I think, are chestnuts! Honestly, I never see them here on the west coast, but surely they exist. 🙂 I’ll hunt them down. ox
