Raw Vegan Key Lime Tart with Oats Crust

key lime tart

Desserts | July 12, 2015 | By

Today i had the pleasure to indulge by far, the B.E.S.T. Raw, Gluten Free Dessert that ticks all the healthy boxes. A part from being Raw and Gluten Free it’s: Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free,  Eggs Free…it’s absolutely nourishing and tastes incredible. 

It’s so fresh, refreshing, colourful and with an amazing tangy flavour that gives you that extra punch. A true summer hit! Sienna and I were literally fighting got the last crumble.

I have tried to develop this recipe according to my taste and i have to admit that although it doesn’t taste the same as the one i had this afternoon (no one shares their secret ingredient), it’s pretty sexy and extremely tasty as well…

Have a look at my ensemble and let me know your thoughts.

Love,

Xx

Crust
  1. 1/2 Cup raw buckwheat groats
  2. 1/4 Cup oats
  3. 1 Cup Medjool dates
  4. 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  5. 3 Tbs maple or agave syrup
Cashew Cream
  1. 2 cups raw cashews (soaked for at least 2 hours)
  2. 1/4 -1/2 cup lime juice + 1 teaspoon lime zest (depending on desired lime flavor intensity)
  3. 1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup or other preferred liquid sweetener)
  4. 2 teaspoons vanilla
  5. pinch of salt
  6. 1/4 cup water (adjust according to desired consistency)
Instructions
  1. Place the buckwheat in a food processor and process for 2-3 minutes until it becomes more like a flour, but not too fine.
  2. Add the oats and dates, pulse and then blend for 2-3 minutes until well mixed.
  3. Remove the mixture and using your fingers push down into a pie pan.
  4. Blend the filling ingredients together in a high-speed blender or food processor until silky smooth. Spread the filling over the crust and use a spatula or inverted knife to make the top very smooth.
  5. Chill the pie in the freezer for an hour, then transfer it to the fridge and let it set for another 3 hours, or overnight. Cut into slices and serve.
  6. Alternatively, you can make four tartlets in place of one pie.
  7. Cover and store the pie in the fridge for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 10. If you freeze the pie, defrost the slices in the fridge for several hours before serving.
Notes
  1. The recipe is a bit tart, because that’s how I like my citrus, but feel free to add more sweetener to taste if you wish.
