Raw Brownie Berry Tart

DSCN1039The more I make raw desserts, the more amazed I am at how incredible they are.  Not only are they delicious and so much healthier, but they are so simple to make.  This tart is the perfect dessert for a summer day!  No need to turn on an oven!  In just a few simple steps you can have a creamy and wholesome dessert that tastes great!  I think it is my new favorite way to use the strawberries from my garden!

    My blogging and stitching mojo is still missing, but that doesn’t prevent me from sharing others blogs! It is winter in south east Queensland, and that means the strawberry season is with us! I’m looking forward to trying this recipe very soon. But can someone tell this Aussie what “muddled strawberries” are?;-)

    • Hi Maureen. Muddled is basically just using a mortar and pestle to mash them up, or use a potato masher, or anything to just make a strawberry mush! I hope that helps! And I hope you enjoy the recipe! 🙂
