With the holidays getting closer and closer this weeks recipe blog is a quick and simple raw holiday inspired recipe that can be enjoyed as part of your breakfast or as a nice dessert or snack 🙂
Super easy and yummy!! Two things we love, especially during the busy holiday season.
Lucuma Candy Cane Strawberries
12 or so Strawberries
1 cup of soaked almonds
1/4 cup of water
1/4 cup agave or any other raw sweetener of choice ( we have also used yacon syrup)
1 TBSP of lucuma powder
1 tsp vanilla powder
1 drop of peppermint essential oil ( more if needed, to taste)
Almonds should be soaked for 8-10 hours( overnight is always good). Once soaked be sure to rinse well, add the almonds along with everything else except the strawberries to the blender. Blend until you reach a cream like consistency. Taste your cream and see if you have enough peppermint flavour, some like more tan others 🙂
Cut the stems off your strawberries and depending on size cut width wise in 2 or 3 slices. Now layer each slice of strawberry with the white lucuma cream and create a strawberry stack, red, white, red, white etc.
Its that simple!! They can be enjoyed right away or stored in the fridge for a day or two. A nice healthy, tasty candy cane-ish treat to enjoy over the holiday season while spending quality time with family and friends 🙂
