raw lemon + coconut tart

 Hey everyone - today I'm sharing a sweet treat from my kitchen: Raw Lemon + Coconut Tarts.  
I was inspired to create these after a morning out, for tea and cake - I had a lemon + coconut slice which was rather yummy!  So I decided to re-created it in my own kitchen for my family ☺

 You could easily make this into one large slice, but I've chosen to put them in little tart tins - this recipe made five.  Raw cakes are quite rich, so you only really need bite size pieces ☺
 Ingredients + Method

for the base:
3/4 cup of each - medjool dates, shredded coconut + nuts of your choice

process these three ingredients together - I used my Thermomix - process for as long as it takes for the mix to come together - it doesn't need to be smooth
press into little tart tins 

for the filling:
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup maple syrup 100%
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup cashews (you can soak these for a creamier mix)
2 tblsp coconut cream

mix all of these ingredients together in the Thermomix til it is creamy - you may need to scrape down the side a few times and keep processing until it's quite smooth
spread out filling over the base

the tarts are ready - refridgerate for a few hours and then enjoy.  
raw treats always need to be stored in the fridge or freezer ☺

Each little tart can be cut into four pieces- perfect for that afternoon tea ☺  I hope you enjoy these.

Creating with love + happiness ♥
