No-Bake Chocolate Raspberry Tarts
Prep time 3 hours 30 mins
Total time 3 hours 30 mins
Serves: 4 individual 4.75-inch tarts
- ½ cup soaked almonds
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- ⅓ cup coconut oil
- 1½ cups fresh raspberries
- 2 tbsp coconut butter
- 2 tbsp agave (can substitute with another liquid sweetener of your choice)
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1½ cups cacao/cocoa powder
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- ½ tsp salt
- Fresh fruits and berries for garnish (I used raspberries, blueberries, kiwi and strawberries)
- To make the crust, place soaked almonds in a food processor and pulse a few times. Then process for about 2-3 minutes until almonds are finely ground. Add shredded coconut and coconut oil and process until combined.
- Divide the crust equally among the tart pans and press into the pans with your fingers, making sure the crust reaches up the sides.
- To make the raspberry filling, place raspberries, coconut butter, agave and lemon juice in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Equally divide the raspberry filling among the tart pans and chill uncovered in the fridge for an hour.
- To make the chocolate filling, place cacao powder, maple syrup, coconut oil and salt in a food processor and process until smooth.
- Take out the tarts from the fridge and pour the chocolate filling on top of the raspberry filling. Place in the fridge to set completely for 2 hours.
- Garnish the tarts with your favourite fruits or berries (or both).
To make Coconut Butter at home, simply blend shredded coconut in a high-speed blender for 3-5 minutes or process in a food processor for 10 minutes.
