No Bake Berry Tarts

                    

For my latest recipe contest entry, I made these no bake berry tarts. You were to create an original recipe using summer berries and keep the sugar to a low to feature the berries natural sweetness. This was perfect for me since I try and stay away from most sugars. The only sugars they contain are from the fruit itself. I've made these quite a few times and my brother loves them. He's a bit skeptical when I make my raw desserts but he always asks for me to make them again.  

Here is a link to the recipe : )

Sweet Snack



Working two jobs can lead to a stressful life as well as unhealthy eating habits. As usual I was craving something sweet when I got off work the other day. Instead of eating something that I shouldn't, I put together this sweet snack. I started with some peach purée I had leftover in my fridge. I added a few drops of stevia and topped it with goat milk yogurt, my favorite granola made by my boss Amber, chopped dried mango slices and dates. I made a similar snack with the granola adding raspberries, dried prunes, hemp seeds, ground flax, and rice milk. 

The granola recipe can be found here on the Enjoy Cupcakes website: enjoycupcakes.com/blog/2010/4/16/granola-cupcake-recipe.html
