No Bake Lemon Berry Coconut Cream Tart

Category: food

Vegan, Gluten-Free and  Refined Sugar Free

If you’re looking for a dessert recipe that’s easy to prepare and will disappear off the plate in an instant, this no-bake lemon berry coconut cream tart with fresh berries is calling out to you. Considering this recipe is completely vegan, gluten-free, and has no refined sugar, how can you go wrong? Beware: the kids may try to tempt you for thirds with the “but there’s no sugar in it!” approach.     



1. For the crust: In a food processor, pulse together the coconut and cashews until the cashews are finely chopped and broken up. 
2. Add the coconut oil, maple syrup, and lemon juice; pulse until a rough dough-like mixture comes together around the blades. 
3. Turn out the mixture into a 23 cm | 9-inch springform tart tin. Evenly press the mixture into the base and sides; cover and chill. 
4. For the filling: Combine everything for the filling in a clean food processor; add the food colouring, if desired. Process until smooth and creamy, 2-4 minutes; add a splash of water to help bring it together, if needed. 
5. Turn out the mixture into the crust, spreading it out evenly. Cover and chill for 4 hours. 
6. To serve: After chilling, carefully open up the cans of chilled coconut milk. Scoop out the creamy coconut solids into a mixing bowl; reserve the coconut water for another use, such as smoothies. 
7. Beat the cold coconut cream until thick, 2-3 minutes. Turn out the tart and spoon the coconut cream on top. Decorate with berries (hull and slice strawberries, if desired). 

Can be frozen.
