Recipe: GF Raw Frozen Lemon Banana Tart (SCD, GAPS, Paleo)


Dec 14

This time of year is filled with candy, cake and cookies and lots and lots of chocolate! I thought it would be a nice change to make something light and nutritious that reminds me of spring!

This raw freezer tart is perfect for company as you can make it ahead and keep it in the freezer until the day you serve it. I like to have recipes for simple, yet sophisticated desserts like this one – something to impress your guests!

Using the gelatin instead of eggs helps bind the ingredients together and also adds nutrition in the form of important amino acids like proline and glycine for skin, mucous membranes and joints.

As always, taste the batter to make sure it is sweet enough for you.
