Preparation

  1. Fruit may become your first choice for dessert after you try this dish: Fresh blueberries are the ideal topping for the almond-date crust. You'll get a helping of antioxidants and fiber, and don't be afraid of the fat: It's mostly the healthy kind. Bonus: This dessert doesn't require any baking.

  2. Serves 4
  3. INGREDIENTS
  4. 2 cups fresh blueberries
  5. 2 teaspoons fresh orange juice
  6. 1 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  7. 1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest, plus extra julienned for garnish
  8. 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  9. 4 teaspoons brown sugar
  10. Canola-oil cooking spray
  11. 2/3 cup raw almonds
  12. 1/2 (packed) cup pitted dates
  13. PREPARATION
  14. Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl, cover and refrigerate. Coat a mixing bowl with cooking spray. Pulse almonds in a food processor until they resemble breadcrumbs. Empty into prepared bowl. Pulse dates with 1 tsp water in food processor until well chopped (they will be a little clumpy). Mix with almonds to form a paste.
  15. Divide mixture evenly into 4 golf ball-sized rounds. Place each ball between 2 pieces of wax paper and press to form a 4-inch crust. Turn up edges if desired. Refrigerate 2 hours. Use a spatula to move crusts to serving plates; fill each with 1/2 cup berries and drizzle each with some leftover juices from bowl. Top with julienned orange zest.
