Rustic coconut tart

Rustic coconut tart

Another heavenly and healthy raw dessert from Natalie and Noel's 'easy living food'.

We served this at our last raw pizza dinner party - see previous posts.

Their recipe called for mature coconuts. I used dessicated coconut.

This tended to soak up the liquid so to up the liquid a bit, i added some coconut cream.

Bearing that in mind, here is their recipe:


1 C pumpkin seeds
1 C buckwheat, activated and dried
1 C dates, pitted and chopped
1/2 C coconut oil
1/4 C hemp powder
1/2 t salt

Put all ingredients into food processor and process till mixed but chunky.
Press into base of springform tin.


2 C mature brown coconuts, chopped
1 C coconut water or water
1 C coconut oil
1 C cashew nuts
1 t vanilla powder
1/4 C honey

Put all ingredients into the high speed blender and blend till smooth, using the tamper as necessary.
Pour the filling into the crust and swirl with a wooden spoon.
Refrigerate for about 6 hours before serving.

They also have a comment about having possibly to improvise a little with the amounts due to the different yield of coconuts.
As we are trying to be vegan, I did not use honey. Instead used a mixture of agave nectar and xylitol syrup.

Again, this was absolutely delicious.

Bon apetit.
