View Full Version : Nut allergy-But need dessert ideas.
04-01-2009, 07:33 PM
I am very new (2 weeks) and I am trying to make some desserts that are very tasty for kids and hubby that do not have nuts in them. Son has a nut allergy. I get scared just having them in the house! I would love some dessert ideas that have crusts but no nuts. We have had the chocolate mousse( it kept hubby up all nut :( ) I made a strawberry mouse(yum) We have had bannana pudding but all this is lots of avocatos and that can't be good either. Hubbies birthday is this weekend and I need to make something we can all eat.

I mean, banana and strawberry smoothies make everything better

Raw banana pudding.
Bananas + Agave Nector+ a little coconut water (combine in cuisart) blend until smooth and creamy.
Chop up some dates, turkish figs, or turkish apricots and then pour on top
then sprinkle a little coconut flakes on top and wala! A nut free dessert.
Also you can puree some strawberries or mango with a little agave and put it in an electric ice cream maker for sherbert.
Bananas also make great "ice cream".

Raw Apple Pie!
slice up an apple really thin
sprinkle with cinnamon
drizzle with organic grade B maple syrup (probably not 100% raw...but oh well) or Agave/honey...whatever sweetener you want....
I make this and let it sit out for a while and get warm and 'marinate' a little..yummy!
no crust though...but none is needed! I'm not sure how you would make a 'crust' with out using nuts....? ooh ooh, I just thought of it....shredded coconut....instead of nuts....maybe mash it up with some dates...and there you go...a crust!

Can you have to many avocados?
Banana ice cream is very good. Just peel and break ripe bananas into large pieces, freeze. You can use the juicer blank plate and push the bananas through. You can also use a food processor and add soaked dates (20 minutes), vanilla, and nutmeg. I like to top it with chocolate sauce. "Living on Live Food" has a good chocolate sauce recipe that uses carob.

For the base of pies:
dessicated coconut with coconut oil (enough to hold it together) and sweetener to taste (agave, dates, dried fruits). Blend together or simply place into a mixing bowl and mix together.
As a filling, there are heaps of options, banana is a good base, and don't worry about how many avocados you use, avos contain good fats.
I make nut free chocolate crackles
Raw Chocolate Crackles (nut free)
All volumes are approximate as I'm not big on exact measurements... sorry!
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
1-2 tablespoons of agave nectar or other sweetener
2 tablespoons of desiccated coconut
1 tablespoon of cacao powder (or more if desired)
1 tablespoon of sprouted dehydrated buckwheat (more can be added)
Pinch of salt dissolved in minimum of water
Melt coconut oil by immersing the bowl in a larger bowl filled with hot water.
Add sweetener and stir, add cacao powder and salt water and stir until thoroughly mixed.
Add coconut and buckwheat and mix completely in.
Place mixture into medium to small paper muffin trays and store in fridge or freezer.
Check this link out for a pic:
You can leave out the sprouted dehydrated buckwheat and cacao powder and add more fruits to make it like a 'white christmas'.
Use the banana button up top to search for nut free recipes too. :)
Also, what about an ice cream cake? Many people have had success with ice cream cakes when they have kids with multiple allergies, check out the thread page link above for a pic of my triple layer ice cream cake (not the best pic) for an example:

You could use buckwheat to make a crust, I imagine. I've used it for crackers, lovely flaky texture
