Strawberry Parfait & Chocolate Covered Strawberries

It was the most magnificent day here near Boulder, Colorado. Sunny and 72, warm in the sun, cool in the shade, with a strong breeze. We took a long bike ride, maybe 3 hours. Zoe has what I call the half bike or third wheel which attaches to Andy’s bike, making it look like a two person bike. Ashley rides behind me in the trailer. We stopped on our favorite hill, and sat under the trees to eat, overlooking the town in the distance, and the rocky mountains beyond, still covered in snow and topped by the bright blue sky. It was even more beautiful than these chocolate covered strawberries, and strawberry parfait :-)

Layer strawberries (sliced and tossed in xylitol then refrigerated for
an hour)
Vanilla Pudding (recipe in Bananas Foster below)

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Warm on low till just melted (or better yet use a double boiler)
1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
1 teaspoon of coconut oil (or more if you want them really shiny)
Or try chocolate raspberry liquid stevia for a raspberry version
Dredge strawberries in chocolate and lay on unbleached parchment
to dry
We also coated half in toasted shredded coconut

    OH my goodness, this looks soooo good!!! I absolutely love strawberries, especially with icecream (I used to eat strawberry sundays ALL the time before I started having problems with dairy and sugar). I am so excited to try this! :D
