500ml raw cream
50g freeze-dried raspberries
200g strawberries, sliced thinly
For the ‘pastry’
300g raw almonds, soaked for 12 hours
7 tablespoons raw honey
90g raw butter, melted at 35°C
seeds scraped from 1 vanilla pod
For the framboise
1kg frozen raspberries
4 tablespoons raw honey
pinch of sea salt
For the ‘pastry’, drain the almonds and blitz in a blender until smooth. Add the other ingredients, blend for 30 seconds until smooth and sticky. Form into 12 even-sized small rectangles less than 1cm thick on a baking sheet and either oven-dry or dehydrate at 37°C for 24 hours, flipping midway through. They should be slightly crispy and pliable.
For the framboise, put all the ingredients into the blender and pulse for 1 minute until smooth then sieve and chill.
Whip cream until it just begins to stiffen. Crush up the freeze-dried berries.
Take each ‘pastry’ rectangle and, using 2 teaspoons, drop small balls of whipped cream onto the bases, or pipe using a piping bag. Sprinkle with crushed berries, top with an overlapping layer of dehydrated strawberries and then drizzle over a little framboise. This makes one base. Gently assemble your four portions by stacking three layered bases, one of top of the other.
