Deborah Schipper DEBORAH SCHIPPER

These treats have a sweet and creamy filling without dairy, gluten and refined sugar. Perfect for the holiday season, they look like a posh canapé but are super easy to make. Rather than feeling overindulged, theses bites will energise with strengthening protein and essential vitamins and minerals.

Makes 24

Ingredients

  • 24 strawberries
  • 2 Tbsp blanched almond flour
  • 160g/5.6oz raw soaked cashews
