      Hi Elrica,

      JewelPie is about living a beautiful life with ease. So there would be a balance of natural and commercial. Often, time and other commitments don’t allow going 100% natural.

      Definitely! When I was surfing the net for this dessert, I’ve found a lot of recipes using different fruits like mangoes and other berries. I chose strawberry because they are easy to cut (no peeling/deseeding). If you try this recipe with other fruits, please post a picture at JewelPie’s Facebook page. I’ll love to see!
