Red White and Blue – July 4th Healthy Dessert Recipe

I have attending a “Health Starts Here” classes at Whole Foods Market for the past 5 weeks.  One of the recipes Katherine (our facilitator) shared with us is this simply delicious Berry Crumble Dessert.  She made it and we got a chance to taste it.  This is soooo yummy!

The whole family will love this! The colors are beautiful and make the perfect dessert to conclude a 4th of July get-together.

Berry Crumble

2 cups Blueberries

2 cups Strawberries

2 Tablespoon Date Paste

1/2 cup Chopped pecans and walnuts


1. Take the tops off the strawberries and slice.

2. Add blueberries to strawberry slices.

3. Use about 2 tablespoons of date paste

4.  Mix it all together with your hands until all the fruit is coated with the date paste.

5.  Top the fruit mixture with the chopped nuts.

You might want to top with whipped topping or cashew cream.

Cashew Cream

1 Cup – Cashews soaked overnight

Enough purified water to make the mixture creamy.

Drain the cashews.

Place the cashews in the blender (Vitamix or Blendtec give the smoothest results)

Add water until the creamy consistency that you want.

Pour over the Berry Crumble.

Have a safe and enjoyable July 4th!!

What People are saying about the Book:

 Super Baby Food- by Ruth Yaron

“Super Baby Food is encyclopedic in both scope and size. Ounce for hefty ounce, this manual/cookbook/reference guide is worth its weight in formula.”

—      Sumi Hahn, Reviewer


“I cannot say enough how much I like this book… In short, it is almost 600 pages of everything you have ever wanted to know about preparing your own vegetarian baby food.”

—       Shayla Roberts, Reviewer


“Ruth Yaron challenges our ideas of traditional baby food by offering up other ingredients for home-blended meals.  She explains how to whirl up vegetables and fruits in your blender and then dump it into ice cube trays to freeze and store.”

—       Joy Hatch, Reviewer

Absolutely everything parents should know about feeding their baby and toddler, including age-appropriate foods, food safety, sample menus, and more than 300 recipes. Healthy, organic foods are encouraged along with green housekeeping techniques.  This quintessential guide includes everything from baby’s physical eating skills at each age to fill-in diet worksheets for proper nutrition.  The new third edition scheduled for release in October of 2010 will also include new chapters for mothers with diet and health tips during preconception, pregnancy, and breastfeeding.


Ruth Yaron is married with three children and lives near the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania. When her twins were born 18 years ago, they were ten weeks premature and very sick. This is what prompted years of research on pediatric nutrition. When her third son was born in 1994, she was able to quit her job as a professor at a local university and become a stay-at-home mom. During the next two years, she wrote the Super Baby Food Book, which became a best seller and is still the best-selling book on the subject of feeding babies solid foods.
