Dive into raw desserts with scrumptious strawberry tartlets

Makes 15 tartlets

Ingredients

Almond Base:
one tsp coconut oil
one cup almonds
five medjool dates (pitted)
1/4 cup desiccated coconut
one tbsp raw cacao powder
a good pinch of salt
one tsp vanilla essence (the real stuff)
one tbsp peanut butter
one tbsp water

Strawberry Filling:
ten strawberries and three extra for the top, washed and hulled
1/2 cup raw cashews
one tbsp coconut oil (melted)
two tbsp maple syrup (the real stuff)
one tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla (the real stuff)

Method 

Base: 

  • Grease a mini muffin tin with the coconut oil, set aside
  • Place the almonds into a food processor and blend until reasonably smooth
  • Add remaining ingredients and blend until well combined
  • Press mixture into each mini muffin tin so that the bottom and sides are covered, forming a little cup 

Strawberry Filling:

  • Place the cashews into a blender and blend into a fine crumb
  • Add remaining ingredients (except the three extra strawberries for decoration) and blend until a smooth strawberry cream is formed
  • Dice the three remaining strawberries, set aside

Assembly

  • Spoon the strawberry filling into the pre-prepared almond cups and top with the diced strawberries and pomegranate
  • Allow to set in freezer for at least two hours before serving

They keep in the freezer for when visitors pop in.

Indulgence is part of the health equation. Enjoy treats that will serve your health rather than take away from it.
