Cashew Date Cream Stuffed Strawberries
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
 
Ingredients
  • 1 pint of fresh strawberries, washed and dried
  • 1 pint of fresh blueberries, washed and dried
  • 1 cup cashew date cream (recipe follows)
Instructions
  1. Cut a thin slice from bottom of strawberries so they stand upright. Remove tops of strawberries with a paring knife and gently scoop out some of the inside of the strawberries. Another option is to not cut off the top off the strawberries, but cut the strawberries from the top into wedges, like a + sign ( but not all the way through).
  2. Use a pastry bag with a decorative tip, or fill a zip lock bag with one corner cut off with cashew date cream.
  3. Fill the strawberries with the cream and top with a blueberry. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  4. Serve immediately on a pretty platter (strawberries will get mushy if you make too far ahead of time).
Notes
I couldn't find my pastry bags and decorative tips so I had to resort to using a ziplock bag to fill my strawberries. They would look a little fancier using a decorative tip, but I still think they look beautiful without, so don't worry if you don't have this. I also left the bottoms on my strawberries because they all stood nicely on their own ( I guess I got lucky). This serves 4 people, so double it up for larger crowds.
