Fenugreek Chocolate Strawberry Heart

This fast and delicious desert is healthy and fun to make. My assistant Patty Maher, came up with this great recipe last Valentines Day, and it was a smashing hit with everyone here at Creative Health Institute (CHI). I think it would make a fun party dish for New Years Eve. 

Fenugreek Chocolate Strawberry Heart

(It’s soooo simple  and pretty; you’ll want to kiss yourself!)

Although this tasty heart was inspired by St. Valentine’s Day, I hope you’ll feel free to enjoy it anytime you want to bring a little more love to your family or friends. xoxox ~ Patty

INGREDIENTS

2 cartons of organic strawberries

2 organic apples (granny smith might be especially nice but I didn’t have them)

2 cups raw organic cacao powder OR carob

1  1/2 cups sprouted fenugreek (We have been keeping sprouted fenugreek on and every day for the past few months, so it happens to have been handy to use.  Lucky for this dessert, the addition of fenugreek gave it a fresh, earthy taste. We’ve been keeping sprouted fenugreek on hand because it has antiviral properties and it’s great for balancing hormones and women’s health. I love it in salad’s too. So sprout some fenugreek. You’ll enjoy it. Otherwise, use whatever sprouts you happen to have handy).

1  cup raw agave (or if you prefer not to use agave, use a cup of date paste and be prepared to dilute with room temperature  purified water).

A bit of room temperature purified water to get it to the consistency you prefer.

DIRECTIONS

Wash and prepare the fruit. Take the stems off  the strawberries and slice the applies into wedges. Place the strawberries in the shape of a heart on a pretty serving plate. Fill in the inside of the heart with apple slices.

Put remaining ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth, adding  purified water until it is at a good consistency for drizzling and dipping. Drizzle chocolate over the fruit. Put remaining chocolate sauce in pretty serving bowls to set next to the large plate. Serve with a pretty bowl of toothpicks.

Enjoy!

  1. Can’t wait to make this–Will use carob instead though. I have been eating fenugreek sprouts for the past several weeks. I always have them in the fridge or in jars doing their thing on the countertop.
    Peace and Raw Health,
