*Servings 1 - 8"Tart

INGREDIENTS
For the base:
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup shredded coconut (or in my case I used the leftover coconut meal after making coconut milk)
  • 5 dates
  • pinch of salt

For the Vegan Tart Filling:
  • 1.5 cups full fat coconut cream
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 tbsp. earl grey tea
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. corn starch
  • 2 tsp agar agar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For  Decoration:
  • A handful of blueberries
  • A handful of dragon fruit balls
  • Shredded coconut
  • Edible flowers (optional)
  • Or any of your favorite fruit or toppings
INSTRUCTIONS
  • To begin making this earl grey blueberry tart, we start by constructing the base. Blend the almonds in the Nutramilk processor till a fine crumb. Add the rest of the crust ingredients and mix well until you obtain a uniform sticky mixture. Note* If the crust isn’t sticky enough then add a  tbsp. of coconut oil and this will help it to stick together when chilled.

    • Add the crust dough to a tart tin (8″/20cm) and spread it evenly on the whole surface. Leave to chill in the fridge, while you prepare the filling.

    • To prepare the earl grey blueberry filling, first heat up the coconut cream in a medium saucepan, stirring well till smooth and uniform. Add the rest of the filling ingredients. Mash the blueberries in the saucepan so they release their juice, giving color and flavor to the mix. Bring to a slow boil and cook for a few minutes until the mix thickens, stirring continuously.

    • When the mixture has become thicker, remove from the heat and pour through a sieve to remove lumps.

    • Pour the filling over the crust and leave it to cool completely. Place in the fridge for some time, till the filling is completely set. As the tart sets and the filling cools down, the color will deepen (naturally) giving you a gorgeous dark purple!

    • Decorate with blueberries, dragon fruit balls, shredded coconut and edible flowers or with your favorite toppings.
