Raw Lemon Tarts

Makes 12 individual tarts

Crust

  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup pecans or pistachios
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 medjool dates
  • Optional: 1-2 Tablespoons lemon zest.

Filling

  • 1 cup cashews (soaked for minimum 2 hours)
  • 1 cup macadamias (soaked for minimum 2 hours)
  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • ¼ cup coconut cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of salt

 Method

For the crust

  1. Add nuts into Thermomix or food processor and blend on high speed until mixture resembles crumbs (10 sec/speed 9)
  2. Add remaining crust ingredients and pulse until well blended. The mixture should hold together when pressed.
  3. Press into individual tart pans and place in the freezer. Tip: My tart pans have a removable base- this makes things much easier when removing the shell from the tart case.

For the filling

  1. Process all ingredients on a high speed until silky smooth. (60 seconds/Speed 10 the scrape down sides and repeat.)
  2. Taste and adjust sweetness or tartness to your liking. If you would like it more tart- add more lemon juice and/or zest. If you would like some more sweetness, you could either add medjool dates one by one or some honey or coconut syrup.
  3. Spread filling into tart shells and refrigerate until set, about an hour.
  4. Save leftover filling for another use.

Note: I also had some leftover filling from my raweos, so I used this to fill 2 shells.

You could really turn this into any flavour- For example: substitute the lemon for cacao, or berries.

I served these with some fresh raspberries- yum!
