We all deserve a treat from time to time, but that often means throwing any ideas about healthy eating straight out of the window. Whether it’s a birthday celebration or a special dinner party, this recipe means you don’t need to make too many compromises to ensure your skin doesn’t suffer. This recipe, although high in fructose, contains no dairy, refined sugar or wheat and is also completely raw. The fresh berries and raw cacao also contain plenty of antioxidants which I feel has a balancing effect on the fructose content. And in any case it tastes great and sometimes you need to live a little!

Recipe

  1. Using a 9″ spring form pan load your bottom crust mixture into it, pressing to form a firm crust.
  2. On top of this crust along the edge of the pan press halved strawberries to create a ring.
  3. In the middle pour in your coconut cream filling and then freeze the assembly for for 2 hours.
  4. Remove from the freezer and spread on the chocolate topping returning to the freezer for 1 more hour.
  5. Before serving add the berry garnish.
