Recipe for Raw Chocolate, Avocado & Strawberry Tart. Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Sugar Free

So, just over a week ago I returned from the Amchara Health Retreat (more on that on my blog soon) and I felt the healthiest I had in a very long time. My skin was glowing, I was feeling calm and relaxed and I had lost just over 3lbs. All that in 3 days! I hadn’t had any wheat, dairy, refined sugar or meat. Since then I have lived an almost vegan diet. I have refused anything processed or anything with wheat, gluten or dairy in it. And to be truthful, I am not missing it all that much!  I had learned some very healthy food habits and I didn’t want to undo all of my hard work.

One of the things that impressed me at Amchara was that we were not only there to detox, we were there to learn about healthy living and, on the Thursday, a lady by the name of Anna Middleton comes in to give the guests a raw food demonstration followed by a raw food feast. The basic principle of the stay is that guests arrive on a Friday, departing the following Friday so this is used to break their fast.

Stages of my Chocolate, Avocado and Strawberry Tart

We were also given a folder to take away with lots of lovely recipes. There was one that caught my eye that I have doctored a little to make something to suit me. A chocolate, avocado and strawberry tart.  I had already made some almond milk and wasn’t sure what to do with the pulp so a brainwave struck! This was going to form part of the base.

Here is my recipe:

    I like the thought of combing avocado, chocolate and strawberries, I think they’d go quite well together. I’ve never heard of almond pulp but I’m guessing it’s just squashed almonds? #pocolo

    That looks delicious. I use avocados to make a chocolate mousse so I bet this is even nicer. I must give it a try πŸ™‚

    Hi Victoria, I love all the ingrediants in this tart (apart from the dates), and never would have thought to use avocados with strawberries. I am tempted to give this recipe a try, but may find it hard to get the dates.
