Strawberry Cream Pie

This truly is one decadent, delectable dessert. The strawberry cream middle is to die for the shortcake base just sets it off to perfection.

Sometimes I know exactly what I’m going to make – I spend time working it out and perfecting a recipe – it’s great fun and I enjoy getting there but occasionally I stumble across something in the process by accident and there is nothing better than discovering something so perfect by accident!!!

That is exactly what happened here. A few weeks back, whilst I was working on the perfect Strawberry Cheesecake Buttercream Frosting for my Chocolate cupcakes I stumbled across the filling for this heavenly Strawberry Cream Pie.

And the real bonus-  (other, of course, than all the health benefits of such a great dessert!!!)  - it is super easy to make. A batch of rich coconut sugar shortbread, some soaked cashew nuts and you’re on your way. The filling is literally all the ingredients blended together – done in two minutes – set in the freezer in 20.

It will impress any dinner party – no one will believe that it is healthy – it can be whipped up for the family at any time – I’m even thinking of taking some miniatures out in my Kilner jars for a picnic!
