No-Bake Cherry Tart

Happy Sunday!
During the hottest summer days, there is nothing better then a cold no-bake dessert!! We really love our sweets here!!! Still had a lot of cherries left; we recently bought a lot at the farmers market…made a no-bake crust using ingredients I already had in my pantry like oats, nuts and dates, whipped up my yummy coconut custard and decorated the tart with cherries. Pretty simple but so yummy!

No-Bake Cherry Tart

For the crust:

  • 2 cups oats
  • 10 Medjool dates
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup mixed nuts (cashew, walnuts, pecans)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2tbsp nut butter of your choice
  • pinch of sea salt

Coconut Custard:

  • 500 ml canned coconut milk
  • 4 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • about 600 g cherries, pitted

-In a medium saucepan whisk together all ingredients except vanilla extract. Let come to a boil, while whisking, then reduce heat and let cook until thickened. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla extract and let cool a few minutes then fill into a bowl and let cool completely in the fridge.

-Line the bottom of a 28 cm tart form with parchment paper, grease the sides.

-In a food processor or blender, add the oats, nuts and dates (medjool dates are usually very soft, if using other dates, soak in a bit of water to soften), process until everything is into small pieces, add the oil, honey, nut butter and sea salt. Process until well combined. It will be a sticky dough.

-Press dough evenly into prepared tart form. Fill tart with the coconut custard and decorate with the cherries.

-Refrigerate several hours or overnight before removing from baking form.

-The crust is pretty soft, place the tart in the freezer for an hour or longer, to make it easier to cut and serve into individual pieces.

Enjoy!
