Lime & Chilli Tart

I'm always trying to think up new and unusual recipes. I wanted to make a fully raw superfood treat and this is packed with plant goodness but feels like a naughty treat. With almonds, oats, avocado, turmeric and spirulina this fresh, creamy citrus tart is so good for you and you wouldn't know it was dairy free. I think you'll either love or hate the colours but everyone will LOVE the taste. Great on a warm day with herbal tea or an iced coffee.
Course: Dessert, sweet treat
Keyword: chilli, lime tart, vegan tart
Servings: 8 slices

Equipment

  • loose base mini tart tins or make one larger one.

Ingredients

Base

  • 60 g almonds
  • 60 g oats
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar or use a sugar of your choice

Filling

  • 1 large avocado
  • 2 tbsp agave/maple syrup
  • pinch of chilli powder
  • 1 lime juiced + use zest
  • 1 tbsp spirulina/matcha/boabab optional
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil melted

Instructions

Base

  • Put the almonds, oats and salt in a food processor and blend until you have small crumbs. Add the turmeric, sugar and oil and blend until full mixed together. The mixture should be sticky and not dry, if it's too dry add a little more oil. Spoon into loose based tart tins and press down firmly. Make sure you press around the sides forming a crust and a well for the topping to sit in. Place in the freezer to set for 20-30 minutes while you prepare the filling.

Filling

  • Place all the ingredients in a clean blender/food processor and blend for a few minutes until mixed together. You will have to open the blender and stir a couple of times to get it completely combined. Remove the bases from the freezer and spoon an even amount into each tin. Spread flat with the back of a spoon. Pop in the fridge for 45 minutes (minimum) to chill and set. Decorate with a slice of lime.

Notes

TIP: If you don't have spirulina you can use matcha, baobab or cacao. If you don't have small tins use a medium sized one and make one larger tart.
