Strawberry & Avocado Tart

This Strawberry and Avocado tart promises to be star of the show; it's healthy, tasty and insta friendly.
Serves 8-10

For the base
  • 3 cups (approx 300g) ground almonds (or tigernut flour for nut-free)
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 5 tbsp Vita Coco coconut oil, melted
  • 3-4 tbsp maple syrup or sweetener of choice (to taste)
  • Zest one lime
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste

For the filling:
  • 3 large, ripe avocados, peeled and mashed
  • 1 cup cashews, soaked in boiling water for 10 minutes and drained
  • 4-5 tbsp maple syrup, or sweetener of choice (to taste)
  • 2-3 tbsp Vita Coco coconut milk
  • Juice 3-4 limes (to taste)
  • Zest two limes
  • Drop lime essential oil (optional)
  • To top: fresh berries

  1. Start by making your base. Preheat the oven to 170C. Stir together all ingredients in a mixing bowl until well combined. Press into a loose-bottomed tart tin (we used a rectangular tin 36cm by 12 cm), pressing the base up the sides, and smooth over with a back of a spoon. Place in the oven to bake for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly golden. Leave aside to cool.
  2. In the meantime, make your filling by blending all ingredients together until completely smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness / lime flavour as desired.
  3. Once the tart base has cooled, spoon over the avocado lime mousse filling. Top with berries, then cut into slices and serve immediately.
  4. N.B Stores in the fridge well, but avocado discolours after a while - this is best served fresh!
