With yesterday’s recipe on vegan, gluten-free ginger ale, we thought we needed a light little snack to go with it! Even if you don’t drink ginger ale, this is a great, refreshing dish that works as readily as a dessert, an appetizer, or a side, and it’s wonderful for a summer picnic or barbecue. And it’s vegan AIP friendly to boot!
This beautiful dish is rich with berries and sweetness, cut with a slight tart flavor. Now that we are headed into summer, farmers markets and other organic markets are brimming with beautiful vibrant berries at the peak of perfect flavor. This dish is served cold from the refrigerator and so is perfect on a hot day for a refreshing treat.
This dish is from one of our favorite recipe books, Raw for Dessert by Jennifer Cornbleet
