Lemon Coconut Tarts

We put our heart and soul into these Lemon Coconut Tarts, an indulgent treat made with wholesome, all-natural ingredients. The tropical citrus and coconut flavors in the cream filling melt in your mouth and the crust gives each bite a satisfying crunch. The ingredients include cashews for heart-healthy fats and plant-based protein; almonds and dates for antioxidants to protect cells in the body from oxidative stress and inflammation; coconut oil to raise the body’s HDL cholesterol in the blood, which is good cholesterol that your body needs for a healthy heart; and lemon kefir for 12 live and active probiotic cultures to help support the gut microbiome. For beautiful presentation, each tart is garnished with a slice of grapefruit (or a slice of orange for a variety of bright colors) and a sprinkling of sesame seeds. You’re going to want to keep this recipe on hand for when Thanksgiving rolls around.

Servings: 5-6 servings

Directions

  1. To make the crust: blend the dry ingredients into a flour texture in a food processor, then add the remaining ingredients and process into a thick dough; it's fine if it's crumbly, but the mixture should hold its shape when pressing.
  2. To make the filling: blend all ingredients until smooth. Adjust according to taste preferences. Pour evenly into your tarts crusts and leave in the fridge to set overnight. Garnish with orange slices and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Enjoy!
  3. Garnish: Sliced orange and red grapefruit + black sesame seeds
