A GAPS Friendly Very, Berry Cream Flan!

The theme for the last few blogs have been recipes for desserts. Here's another one, no one will ever guess this flan/pie is made with coconut milk, it's so rich. 

You can personalize your flan by choosing the berry of your preference. I have made one with blueberries and the other with raspberries.

Raspberry Cream Flan
Ingredients for two flans:
Crust enough for two flans:
1 1/2 cup flaked or shredded, unsweetened coconut (without sulfites)
6 pitted Medjool dates
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 egg white
1 tsp vanilla (optional)

Topping for two flans:
4 cups coconut milk
2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
¼ cup honey
10 drops stevia
Blueberry Cream Flan
4 tsp grated lemon and orange rind
2 tsp vanilla
1 pack of gelatin
1 1/2 cups organic berries of your choice

In food processor, combine the ingredients for the crust, in the order written, pulsing after each addition. Press into bottom of a square cake pan, springform, or flan pan. Sprinkle with berries. 

Using the same food processor, add all ingredients and blend until smooth and slightly fluffy. Pour over berries.

Bake in 350°F/180° oven for 60-70 minutes or until golden.

This berry cream flan can be served warm or cold. One pie makes 12 servings.
