Sugar-Free Raw Vegan Fruit & Nut Tart - An Original Recipe (Probably my Healthiest EVER!)

As I had never before created anything suitable for the raw vegan diet I decided to try making something, and am very pleased with the results!  I'm not entirely sure what to call it, since it's not a cheesecake or flan and not really a tart (I'm pretty sure 'tarts' have a pastry case), but after a really hard think I was stumped so settled on the inaccurate 'tart'!  Oh well!  

I love the lightness of it - the way I don't feel full like I would after eating cheesecake.  I love the nutty, slightly chewy base with a subtle sweetness that lingers as an extremely pleasant after-taste.  I love the soft, fruity topping that has a smooth and somewhat 'gooey' consistency.  And I love how the chopped hazelnuts pressed into the base gives the sensation of chocolate chips.  It works so well as a light summer dessert, and I will be making this again for sure.  Not only is it a delicious treat but very healthy, considering it's made simply of nuts, seeds, dates, coconut oil and fruit.  That's it!  As always I would recommend you use organic ingredients so as not to risk an unwanted side cocktail of chemical residues :-)


100g dates

150g ground almonds

25g hemp seeds

25g coconut oil

25g chopped hazelnuts

1 mango

1 avocado

1 ripe banana

30g chia seeds

Fresh blueberries to decorate


If you have a food processor you can just blitz the dates, but mine has broken so I chopped my dates finely using a knife.

Grind the hemp seeds (I used the coffee grinder attachment on my blender).

Put the dates, hemp seeds, ground almonds and coconut oil (melted on very low heat) into a bowl and mix thoroughly.  I used my hands to scrunch the mixture really well.

Press into a lined cake/flan tin.

Sprinkle the chopped hazelnuts on top of the base mixture, and press down into the base using the back of a spoon.  Pop into the fridge to harden.

Put the mango, avocado and banana into a bowl and puree using a stick blender.

Finely grind the chia seeds and stir into the fruit mixture.

Spread the fruit topping over the base and decorate with blueberries.  Pop back into the fridge for a few hours to set properly before removing from the lined tin and slicing up to eat.
