Transform blackberries into this decadent PINK dessert dripping with dark chocolate. You won’t believe it’s low-carb, gluten-free and has no sugar added!
Are you a fan of chocolate covered fruit? I wasn’t until I tried it like this!! An almond flour shortbread base coated in chocolate, topped with a blackberry coconut blend, plus more chocolate drizzled on top! So yummy!
I must admit, chocolate on fruit is typically not my thing, but I found that I really like it! The slightly tart berries are complemented by shortbread and creamy coconut to balance out the acidity. It totally works.
This almond flour shortbread crust is a magical new creation. I discovered there’s no need for flax eggs, applesauce or dates to hold it together. And you don’t have to bake it, either! #winning
And my favorite part– there’s no sugar added at all! (And a coating of dark chocolate always makes things more yummy! Ha) Dare I say this is my favorite crust of all the dozens I’ve made before? Dense, chewy, and radiating that almond flour glory, lol. I love it!
New & Exciting
I’m having so much fun experimenting with new crusts, layers, combinations and toppings. I’m so excited to branch out. Not only in desserts, but in life! I’m coming out of my shell, taking risks, trying new things, meeting new people.
Being an introvert is hard sometimes, lol! But I’ve found that facing my fears of opening up to people has restored my faith in people. A couple of weeks ago, I basically forced myself to go to a women’s brunch where I didn’t know a soul. That was super intimidating for me. But ya know what? I’m SO glad I went. I had the best time and made new amazing friends.
There are so many genuinely NICE people out there. Meeting them has been such a blessing. Also “meeting” people virtually through this blog! Now I’m actually looking forward to meeting more people, even if I’m terrified at first. =D
Blackberries are NEW for me. This is my only second recipe using blackberries. (The first was Low-Carb Blackberry Cake Balls. Love) And now adding CHOCOLATE with blackberries. Holy yum. The chocolate coating on the crust reminds me of this Coconut Cream Pie with Dark Chocolate Ganache. I need to make that again – SO good (and take new photos, ha)
Do you like trying new things? I’m getting there 🙂 Be on the lookout for NEW things from PrettyPies! I can’t wait to share what I’ve been working on. So exciting!
