It’s time for this week’s sweet treat…and it’s a good one.
One thing I love about summer is the abundance of fresh fruit. Every week, I buy a ton of fruit, and every week, it all gets eaten! One of my favorite summer fruits is strawberries. There is nothing sweeter than a fresh, red, juicy strawberry. Unless of course you add said strawberries to a creamy, chocolaty pie!
Check out those ruby red strawberries. And of course, the chocolate crust and creamy filling make this pie absolutely delectable!
I originally found this recipe in an issue of Cooking Light, but of course, I had to adjust it a touch, like I do all recipes.
- I used healthy coconut oil to replace the vegetable oil
- I omitted the strawberry-flavoured liqueur
- I used no-sugar-added jam
I’m sure it’s obvious by now that this dessert was pretty popular. I mean really, who doesn’t like chocolate, strawberries, and cream?! And I love that it’s no-bake. You can whip up this dessert in no time and let it sit and chill in the fridge for a few minutes before serving.
I bet this would also be great with raspberries or blueberries or blackberries. Feel free to experiment. You can’t go wrong with these simple yet delicious ingredients!
