Easter Is Coming; Let’s Eat Chocolate

The lovely Alison from Relauncher touched base with me last week offering up one of the most scrumptious Rich, Raw Chocolate Tart recipes I’ve ever come across. Considering Easter is only a few days away, I thought it would be the perfect time to take her up on the offer and share this slice of magic with all of you, Happies.

I ‘met’ Alison via social media and have fallen in love with her healthy philosophy on life and super-cool website. It’s this amazing hub for buying all your health and wellness needs and, let me warn you, can be quite addictive. She’s got everything on there – from food to beauty to sporty accessories like yoga mat spray. LOVE!

Anyway, here’s Alison’s sugar, gluten and dairy-free tart…

RawChocTart

And here’s what you need…

Crust

2cups activated (soaked) mixed nuts
3 TBS organic coconut oil
1 1/4c desiccated coconut
2 TBS organic cacao powder
8 dates

Filling

Handful of berries
1 1/2c coconut milk
2TBS organic cacao powder
1 TBS vanilla
2 TBS organic coconut oil
4 dates
1/2tsp stevia

NOTE: if you want a creamier filling, you can omit the coconut milk and stevia and replace with coconut cream!

And here’s how you make it…

Crust

1. Whizz up all the ingredients in a powerful blender. If you don’t have a powerful blender, just whizz the ingredients in small batches

2. Pack the mixture into a lined cake dish

3. Place in the freezer whilst making the filling

Filling

1. Blend the dates, then remove from the blender and set aside

2. Whizz the coconut milk and stevia in the blender for 7 minutes (this helps slightly thicken the milk)

3. If you have opted to use coconut cream instead, whizz the coconut cream in the blender for about 5 minutes

4. Add dates and the remaining ingredients (except the berries) to the blender and give it a quick blend to mix the ingredients thoroughly

5. Place the berries on the crust, then add the filling on top

6. Return to the freezer for approximately 4 hours

Alison’s Serving Suggestions:

You can choose to serve the tart before the inside sets. This will take around 3 hours. The outer edge will be set, but when you cut inside, the creamy mixture runs out. This tastes great this way against the crunchy crust!

You can also serve the tart with the inside set. You will need to leave the tart in the freezer for longer to allow for the setting time (an additional 1 – 1 1/2 hours).

Well, it’s safe to say this tart is going on the menu this weekend. Doesn’t it look amazing?

Stay Happy,

Yaz x

    It’s taking ALL my willpower NOT to jump on the next bus home and whip one of these babies up. YUM!
