You know what’s a fun challenge for me?
Coming up with dessert recipes that are allergy-friendly, low-glycemic, and packed with as much nutrition as possible.
It takes a fair bit of thinking outside the box.
Yet when I do it, the sense of satisfaction is immeasurable.
You see, I don’t eat sugar. At all.
I do enjoy using stevia, however I admit… stevia definitely presents its own challenges.
It can be difficult to sweeten things with stevia because it’s known for having a funky, bitter aftertaste. No one wants bitterness lingering on their palate when it’s time for dessert! The small bit of stevia in this avocado-lime tart is just right — no bitterness!
I also have a family, and it’s so important to me to make every bite we eat count — even dessert.
This raw tart recipe is an elegant crowd-pleasure. It not only looks beautiful, but it’s full of enzymes from soaked almonds and pumpkin seeds, healthy fats from coconut milk, oil, and avocado, and detoxifying properties from the spirulina.
Who says you can only eat your greens in a salad or smoothie?!
Raw Avocado-Lime Tart
This allergy-friendly tart is a refreshing change from heavy, baked desserts. It’s bright and fresh, and it’s color practically screams its nutrient density.
With no eggs, grains, gluten, dairy, or sugar, it’s sure to satisfy everyone — from kids all the way to insulin-sensitive adults.
Can’t have nuts? That’s ok! Use all pumpkin seeds and leave out the almonds.
This raw tart is high in protein, zinc, vitamins, saturated fat, and the benefits of spirulina. Just a teaspoon of this green superfood lends such a festive green tint to the tart.
A small slice is all you need to truly feel like you’ve eaten dessert.
