For the “last hurrah” before the fall routine sets in, here’s a make-ahead recipe for a cool, frosty dessert. Great on a hot day!
FROZEN STRAWBERRY DESSERT
Start with one cup of organic flour of your choice – you may use whole barley, OR (for gluten-free) whole brown rice or whole buckwheat, or coconut flour or almond meal – or a mix of them!
2 tbsp. raw honey
1/2 cup cold butter
1.2 cup sliced or chopped almonds or pecans
Mix flour and honey in a small bowl. Grate the cold butter into the mixture, stir until well blended. Stir in the nuts. Press the mixture into a 9×9 pan and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, or until lightly browned around the edges. Cool in the pan on a wire rack.
Frozen organic strawberries, thawed – one 10-oz. bag or 2 cups
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup raw honey
1 to 1 1/4 cups of raw or organic whipping cream, whipped
In a large mixing bowl, mix the berries, juice, and honey until they are well blended. Carefully fold in the whipped cream with a flat spatula, until well mixed.
Crumble the cooled nut mixture, and reserve 1/2 cup for topping. Sprinkle the remaining crumbs into an 8-inch square pan. Pour the strawberry mixture over the crumbs, then top with the reserved crumbs. Cover well and store in the freezer for at least 6 hours. 9 servings. You should be able to serve this almost directly from the freezer – no need to thaw.
