Strawberry tart -Mansikkatorttu

ImageWhat do we Finns love in summer -berries. Our forests and fields are full of berries. Wild forest blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, lingonberries, cloudberries…planted blackcurrants, redcurrants, strawberries, raspberries..All these amazing treats just a hand pick away. My little daughter tasted blueberries for the first time and loved them, who wouldn’t. Wild blueberries are so tasty, drastically different from bush blueberries as I have noted before.

I will continue to add raw food delights to my blog. I know, you must think I have lost my mind being so excited about  raw food. I want to highlight that I am interested in ”raakaruoka” not ”elävä ravinto” as we distinguish those two in Finnish. In English I don’t know whether there is such a clear distinction between ”raw food” which is uncooked food and delights made of mainly nuts etc. to replace flour, eggs, dairy and so on, whereas ”living raw food” is more about growing your own stuff and eating sprouts and all sort of greenies, I am not into that 🙂 I love good food so much so for me something that does not taste good even though being healthy is useless!

The recipe below is a fantastic alternative for strawberry cake. It is gluten, egg and dairy free so perfectly suitable for people with these allergies (of course nut allergic cannot eat this!!). This recipe is also from the book called ”Raw food delights”. Even my carnivore Aussie man loves these kind of raw food treats and that is a win!

Base:

7 dl (700ml) almonds

5 tbs honey

3 tbs vegetable oil

Filling:

3 pureed bananas

1/2 litre of strawberries

Topping:

5 dl (500ml) cashew cream (see the recipe in this post )

Decoration:

1/2 litre of strawberries

1. Crush almonds in a blender.

2. Add honey, oil and salt. Blend more.

3. Press half of the mixture in a cake tin or on the plate.

4. Pour half of the banana puree on top and half of the sliced strawberries on the top of them.

5. Add the half of the rest of the base mix on the top of banana puree and strawberries.

6. Add the rest of the banana puree and sliced strawberries.

7. Pour and press the rest of the base mix on top.

8. Pour cashew cream on top and decorate with strawberries.

Enjoy on a beautiful summer day!!!
