Decadent raw raspberry and chocolate tart

A delicious frozen dessert with a stunning colour and flavour. This raspberry and chocolate tart can be eaten straight from the freezer where it will be firm and cool, or at room temperature where it is quite soft but holds together and has a really creamy delicious taste. You could also just eat it freshly made as the frozen berries give it a wonderful coolness and texture.

Such a colourful platter.

This tart can be made ahead and kept in the freezer. Just keep it on a firm base and cover it in cling wrap. On the day it is required just remove it from the freezer and decorate, or slice it and keep it in the freezer to have as a snack.

The tart is paired here with a delightful chocolate mousse, fresh strawberries and Raw Organic Dark Chocolate.

I used a round baking tray with a decorative edge that had a removable base. I greased the inside of the tray with organic coconut oil and then made the base.

In the food processor l placed:

1 cup of activated almonds (or other hard nut of your choice), 1 cup of shredded organic coconut and 8 large medjool dates (remember to take out the seeds).

Blend well in the food processor and then press firmly into the pan. Place this into the freezer to set while you make the filling.

The pan is greased well with coconut oil.

2015-05-22 11.39.19

Use a spatula to spread the base and to push it down so it is flat and firm.

In the food processor blend together:

1 large ripe avocado, 1.5 tablespoons raw organic cacao, 3 tablespoons of organic coconut oil and 1 cup of medjool dates (Approximately 10 dates with the seeds removed). Once combined add 1 really generous cup of frozen raspberries and gently pulse through the mix so they are roughly chopped up or blend thoroughly if you want them mixed through. Remove the base from the freezer and fill with the delicious mix.

2015-05-22 11.38.54

Look at that colour.

Smooth the top with a spatula ensuring it is nice and even.

2015-05-22 11.38.34

The more berries you add the pinker the colour.

Cover with cling wrap and return to the freezer to set. When you are ready to serve the tart, remove it from the freezer and decorate with extra berries and fruit.

2015-05-22 12.12.19

Made with real whole food ingredients.

Alternatively, cut up the tart and freeze, so that you can have a piece as a snack with some berries and raw dark chocolate.

2014-06-29 11.34.02

Served with frozen berries and a piece of Raw Dark chocolate.

This is a very rich treat and a small piece is very satisfying. The coconut and chocolate are a wonderful combination and this tart is very pleasing to the taste buds.

Raw organic blueberry and coconut tart

This is the most delightful raw tart with an extraordinary colour from the organic blueberries. Completely gluten, dairy and processed sugar free and so simple to make with the aid of your trusty food processor. Keep it in the freezer for those unexpected guests or just to have a slice as the need arises.

You need a baking tin with a base that is separate to the edging for this tart so that you can take off the edges, cut the tart and leave it on the base to store. Grease well with coconut oil. I use one with a decorative edge so it gives the tart a nice look.

2015-07-01 12.45.18

Organic blueberries are a must and worth the extra expense. This is one product where buying organic makes sense due to possible contamination.

Base:

In the food processor (chopping blade) place 1 cut of raw activated almonds (or similar), 1 cup of shredded coconut and 8 medjool dates (seeds removed). Process well then place into the greased dish and press down firmly with the back of a spoon.

2015-07-01 13.24.23

A firm base is required.

Filling:

Into the food processor (chopping blade) place:

1 ripe avocado (large)

1 cup of organic blueberries (organic is a must due to possible contamination)

1 cup of raw activated cashews

2 teaspoons of raw honey (More nutrients than regular honey and a lower GI)

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1 teaspoon cinnamon

4 medjool dates (seeds removed)

2015-07-01 13.21.37

Ready to be mixed.

2015-07-01 16.48.55

Process well and watch the colour develop. Mix until smooth.

2015-07-01 16.49.25

Pile it on top of the base and smooth out evenly with a spatula. Place in the freezer to set for a few hours.

2015-07-01 18.41.54

Slice it into pieces and keep in a container so you can quickly grab a piece or keep the whole tart in the freezer for those emergency situations. Decorate with your favourite berries and coconut flakes.

I used a round baking tray with a decorative edge that had a removable base. I greased the inside of the tray with organic coconut oil and then made the base.

In the food processor l placed:

1 cup of activated almonds (the original recipe said hazelnuts), 1 cup of desiccated or shredded coconut and 8 large medjool dates (remember to take out the seeds).

Blend well in the food processor and then press firmly into the pan. Place this into the freezer to set while you make the filling.

In the food processor blend together:

1 ripe avocado, 3 heaped teaspoons of cocoa or cacao, 3 tablespoons of organic coconut oil and 1 cup of medjool dates (Approximately 10 dates with the seeds removed). Once combined add 1 really generous cup of frozen raspberries and gently pulse through the mix so they are roughly chopped up or blend thoroughly if you want them mixed through.

mixed berries

I would recommend organic berries and l picked all of the raspberries out of this pack which was the perfect amount.

Remove the base from the freezer and fill with the delicious chocolate mix.

Coconut and lime tart with a rustic base

This is a raw and frozen tart that is delicious and flavoursome. The smooth top layer blends well with the rustic coconutty base.

2014-09-20 13.26.26

Coconut and lime are a lovely combination

There are 2 stages to this tart which are making the base and the top layer. The process is very quick and it sets in the freezer in a couple of hours.

Ingredients and method:

Base:

1 cup of nuts (I used raw activated almonds-your choice). If you want a smoother less rustic base you could use blanched almond meal. I like the base crumbly.

1 cup organic shredded coconut

8 large organic medjool dates (seeds removed)

Place all of the base ingredients in the food processor and whiz until well combined and broken down.

2014-09-20 10.23.35

The base ingredients ready to be processed.

Have a pan greased and ready. I used one where the edge is serrated and the base comes out. Grease this well with coconut oil. Place the processed mixture into the pan and push down well with a spatula and then your fingers. It should be even and well compressed.

2014-09-20 10.27.17

Pouring the base mix into the greased pan.

2014-09-20 10.28.55

The base is nice and flat and will make a good base for the tart.

Carefully place the tart in the freezer for about 30 minutes to firm up. If you use the pan l did hold the base with your hand while you do this.

Top layer:

2 large avocados (skin and seed removed)

2 generous tablespoons of raw organic honey (gently melted)

Juice and zest of one lime

1/2 cup organic coconut oil (gently melted)

1/2 cup raw macadamia nuts

1/2 cup organic shredded coconut

Place all of the ingredients in the food processor and whiz until smooth.

2014-09-20 11.40.27

Taste test to check the flavour. It should have a nice zesty lime flavour.

Pour the lime mixture onto the frozen base and spread out evenly using a spatula.

2014-09-20 11.41.18

Spread the mixture right to the edges.

When it is even place the tart gently in the freezer for a couple of hours.

2014-09-20 11.42.16

Lift gently onto a flat surface in the freezer.

Use a clean sharp knife to carefully cut the tart. Lift it onto the plate using a cake server. Serve by itself, with some fresh fruit or a topping of raw organic dark chocolate finely sliced.

2014-09-20 13.28.23

A frozen treat that you can keep in the freezer to use as needed.

This is a really lovely recipe and could be kept well covered in the freezer to use as required.
