I made this for my kids for a healthy dessert last night in honor of Valentine’s Day. . . it was delicious!
I got the idea from the this recipe for raspberry cream-filled chocolate candies. Some day, I will definitely be trying those! I didn’t have time to make those, but the filling seemed super easy and sounded like a yummy dessert on its own.
I used strawberries instead of raspberries because I had a bag of frozen organic strawberries from Trader Joe’s on hand.
Here it is!
Thaw 1 12-ounce bag of strawberries.
Soak 1/2 cup raw cashews for a couple hours. Put cashews in a bowl and cover with water. Cover and refrigerate.
In a blender, combine:
- Thawed strawberries
- 1/2 cup raw cashews (soaked and drained)
- 1/2 cup medjool dates, pitted
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- Pinch of salt
Blend until smooth.
Refrigerate to thicken.
Serve with dark chocolate shavings! (My son’s favorite part!)
