Course Dessert

  • 1/2 cup Brazil nuts
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup Irish Moss gel (see below)
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 8 drops liquid stevia, or 1/2 packet dry stevia
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla, or pinch of a vanilla bean

  1. Soak Brazil nuts several hours. Drain and rinse.

  2. Blend soaked nuts in 1 ½ cups water for 90 seconds or until very smooth, in a high-speed blender.

  3. Add remaining ingredients and blend on high until creamy.

How to Use Irish Moss Gel: Keep the dry moss refrigerated in a sealed bag or jar. Soak a handful in a quart jar full of water for 3-5 hours on the counter. Drain and rinse well (you may have to pick out bits of shell/sand). Blend ¼ cup soaked, packed Irish Moss, with 1 cup filtered water until smooth. Store in fridge in a glass jar for up to 2 weeks. Use in potatoes, gravy, ice creams, puddings, etc.
