This dessert is perfect for the warmer weather. It’s refreshing, fruity and lighter than most nut based treats. Plus it’s:
▪ Gluten Free
▪ Dairy Free
▪ Cacao Free
I came up with this recipe whilst trying to create something different to the usual chocolate based healthy dessert for a dinner party.
To be honest anything lemony is good with me!
This recipe makes x 4 tarts.
▪ 1 1/2 cups of macadamia nuts
▪ 1/2 cup of medjool dates
▪ pinch of sea salt
Blend ingredients until a dough is formed, press into the coconut oil greased tart tins.
▪ 1/2 cup of lemon juice
▪ 1 tbsp of honey
▪ 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil
▪ pinch of vanilla
Blend all ingredients together until a smooth cream. Pour into the tart tins on the base. Place in the freezer for 30 mins to firm.
▪ 2 cups of strawberries, chopped
▪ 3/4 cup of medjool dates.
Blend into a strawberry jam, pour in the cream filling and place in the freezer to set for about an hour.
These are delicious when totally defrosted or still slightly frozen. I like how when they are frozen you can eat them by hand! They’re like an ice-cream biscuit and oh so yummy!
