Strawberries and cream are such a dream. I love dunking fresh and fragrant strawberries through a big pool of just-whipped vanilla cream. And I wanted to translate these flavours over into a plant-based version so everyone could experience the yumminess!
I used cacao butter for the white chocolate base and you can sweeten it with powdered sugar if you like. I prefer it without the sweetness but everyone I taste-tested them on have a sweeter tooth than me and they liked them with 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar dissolved into the cacao butter. You can use powdered coconut sugar if you like, just blitz up your coconut sugar in a vitamix or processor until super fine, like powder.
You can find my recipe for Vanilla Roasted Macadamia Butter here and this makes the chocolate super creamy.
For my strawberry chia jam I use 1 punnet of pureed strawberries heated on the stove with 1/3 cup rice malt syrup for 5 minutes then taken off the heat and 3 tablespoons of chia seeds mixed through. Leave for 10 minutes for chia seeds to soften and then it's good to go! Alternatively, you can use regular jam.
- 1/2 cup cacao butter, melted
- 2 tbs Vanilla Roasted Macadamia Butter (see link above)
- 3-4 tbs powdered sugar
- 1/3 cup strawberry chia jam (see above)
