You won’t believe this layered strawberry dessert is sugar-free, made with healthy ingredients, and packed with nutrients. Plus it’s gluten-free + dairy free + delicious and creamy!

INGREDIENTS

For the base:
  • 1/4 cup dates
  • 1/4 cup almonds
For the layer:
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (full fat)
For the strawberry sauce:
  • 1 cup strawberries

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. First make the strawberry sauce. Blend 1/2 cup of strawberries until they form a creamy sauce and set aside.
  2. Then make the “cookie” base. Blend the almonds and the dates together in a food processor until they form a sticky mass. Don’t blend them for too long. You want it to be sticky, but still a bit crunchy, so you get some nice texture. Divide the mixture evenly into two dessert glasses, pressing it into the bottom of the glass using your fingers.
  3. Next is the layer. Put the cashews and the coconut milk in a food processor until smooth.
  4. Then put about half of it (the layer) on top of the “cookie” base. Freeze for about 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from freezer. Then add the strawberry sauce. Add the white layer then add the strawberry sauce and freeze again for another 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from freezer and enjoy! I didn’t add any kind of sweetener because the dates and the strawberries already make it pretty sweet by themselves. But if you want it to be even sweeter, you could of course also add some agave or maple syrup.
