Healthy, Raw, Vegan, Berry Tarts


INGREDIENTS:

  • Crust:
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 10 pitted dates
  • 1 Tbs shredded coconut (optional)
  • 2 tsp chia - ground
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch sea salt
  • 2-3 Tbs water 
  • 1 tsp organic confectioners sugar (optional)

  • Filling:
  1 cup fresh strawberries 
  1 cup black berries (or blue berries)
  1 ripe avocado
  2 Tbs vanilla (with no alcohol results in a better taste)
  pinch salt
  1 tsp fresh lime or lemon juice


Method:
  1. Combine all crust ingredients, except water into a food processor such as a Ninja or Vitamix and process until ground. Add the water while the processor is running. This 
will help combine ingredients and result in a better texture.
  2. Press crust into the base of individual tart pans or pie plate of your choice. If using a pie plate, it's preferable to choose one that is shallow rather than deep. 
  3. Combine filling ingredients into food processor and process until smooth. Pour filling over crust and even out with a spatula. 
  4. Place in freezer for at least 2-3 hours to set. Keep in mind that this dessert is better served when mostly frozen. You do not want to serve it thawed. Makes for a wonderful summer treat!
