Gluten Free Nutty Dessert Recipe

This is a recipe by 11 year old Emma Barberi, aka Little Raw Vegan Girl.

I wanted to make something special. I imagined a cake with a lot of colorful fruit on it, topped with a sauce. I planned it all out and came up with this recipe. My dad tasted it and said, “That’s a whole lotta awesomeness!” I thought that was the perfect name for it.

Base:

  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup dried mulberries

Fruit Topping:

  • 6 strawberries
  • 3/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/3 cup raspberries

Raspberry Sauce:

  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 2 tablespoons water

How To Make This Gluten Free Nutty Dessert Recipe

Process base ingredients in food processor until they are blended just enough to stick together. Don’t blend more than that, or you will have a big sticky mess. Shape into a circle on your plate and flatten it out a little. Put the fruit topping ingredients on top of the base.

For the raspberry sauce, blend sauce ingredients together in the blender and then spoon on top of the fruit. It’s beautiful and delicious!

Serves 1 or 2
