Ingredients

for the crust:

  • 1 1/2 cup pitted dates
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

for the filling:

  • 2 cups soaked cashews
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 tbsp lime zest or more

Instructions

  • For the crust: combine dates, walnuts, pecans, oil, and syrup in a food processor and pulse until everything is mixed together. You may want to do this in 2 batches.
  • Grease a muffin tin with coconut oil then evenly distribute the crust, using your hands or a spoon to smash it down flat; place tin in the freezer.
  • For the filling: place cashews, milk, oil, syrup, extract, and lime juice in a high-power blender and pulse. If mixture seems to be stuck, add additional milk 1 tbsp at a time, but be careful not to add too much additional milk or the filling will be too thin.
  • Pour cashew cream overtop of the 12 tart crusts, evenly distributing it.
  • Sprinkle each tart with lime zest and place muffin tin back in the freezer for at least 20 minutes, allowing time for them to harden.
  • Store tarts in the freezer and use a knife to remove tarts from muffin tin.
  • Eat frozen OR leave out for 10 or so minutes, allowing time for them to thaw before eating.
  • Enjoy!
