I found this recipe on the GlutenFreeGus.com blog and was intrigued by the title so I tried it, and wow! what a great result and so easy to make. I’ll definitely be making it again and again especially for friends as a way of tempting them into the world of Healthy Eating.

    Oh wow that sounds good, Vegan or not!

    I probably won’t try it Paul. As a diabetic, I’ve learned to sort of not think much about actual desserts, so I seldom make them at home. I get a treat now and then when I go out to eat, one piece and walk away, lol.

    • Nancy, is it type II or Type I? If it’s type II then you must read Dr Fuhrman’s new book “The End of Diabetes”. It’s a proven fact that you can be totally cured of it using nutrition only as long as your kidneys have not beenhugely damaged by it.I just received the book last week. Paul

    It’s Type II that I’ve controlled now for several years with diet and exercise. My blood sugars are always normal, a1Cs are good and I’ve learned how to eat an entirely different way. Had to push myself into that at first, but now for a long while it’s become second nature and I’m happy with what I eat, so I don’t feel like I’m missing out on things really. And I go a little berserk with a good treat now and then, lol. Thanks!

    Hi Paul,

    I cant believe we are on the same wave length! We had this tart exactly in a little caf in Melb last week and came home and looked it up it was so delicious. It is the little orange Raw foods Thermomix Book, we agree it is really amazing in flavour. We have printed some recipes off for some of our owners who we know are interested in eating this style of food.

    What a coincidence!

    Cheers

    Jane

    That does look amazing for us dessert lovers!!

    • Hi Julie,
      It not only looks good but it tastes amazing and is very rich. The pecan crust sets it off and adds a lot to the taste. You certainly can’t eat much in a single sitting (well I can’t anyway).
      Let me know how you find it won’t you?
      Paul
