Raw Blueberry Tart

This decadent Raw Blueberry Tart is raw vegan, gluten and even paleo! It is made with a chewy date and pecan base that is topped with creamy vegan blueberry cashew cream cheese that tastes just like the real thing. It gets all of its sweetness from the dates, blueberries and a pinch of stevia making it sugar free and bursting with fibre and antioxidants.

Raw Blueberry Tart is from Jesse Lane’s cookbook Healthy Dairy Free Desserts which contains over 30 delicious dessert recipes! It is an excellent make-ahead dessert that can be left in the freezer in an air tight container for several months. It is perfect to have on hand for unexpected company. If you are not planning on entertaining any time soon, you can make it into 12 tarts using a muffin tin.

Ingredients

Filling Ingredients:

  • 2 cups raw cashews, soaked (see instructions)
  • Juice of one lemon
  • ½ tsp stevia
  • 6 Tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1½ cups wild blueberries

Base Ingredients:

  • ½ cup dates, roughly 5
  • 1 cup pecans
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ¼ tsp stevia
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2-4 tsp water *optional

Directions

  1. Place cashews in a bowl and cover them with water. Soak for at least 3 hours to overnight and rinse before using. Note: you can also soak in very hot water for much less time - 15 min or so
  2. To make the base, place the dates, pecans, shredded coconut, stevia and salt in a high speed blender or food processor and pulse until it forms into a chunky crumbly mixture. If your dates are really dry, you may need to add 2-4 tsp of water. The base is ready when you can roll it into a ball that stays together.
  3. Press the base mixture into a 7 inch spring form pan or 12 muffin liners. Place it in the freezer and chill while you prepare the filling.
  4. To make the filling, place the soaked cashews, lemon juice, stevia, coconut oil and vanilla in the high speed blender or food processor and process until silky smooth.
  5. Remove the chilled base from the freezer and top with ⅔ or the vegan cashew cream cheese and return to the freezer to set.
  6. Add 1 cup of blueberries to the remaining filling in the blender or food processor and process until smooth. Pour over the chilled tart, cover and freeze until solid, roughly 5 hours.
  7. Before serving, defrost the blueberry tart in the fridge for 3 hours and garnish with the remaining ½ cup of blueberries.
