Summery Strawberry Tarts

 

These strawberry tarts are the perfect dessert to make in the summer. It’s healthy, super delicious and you will definitely impress your friends when you serve them this perfect little tart!

If you are having a big crowd over or you would like to make a birthday cake, instead of making small tarts you can also triple the recipe and make a big tart out of it. Just as yummy and of course, more cake equals to more happiness!

 

Ingredients

 

Makes 4 tarts

For the base

  • 25 grams cashew nuts
  • 75 grams pecan nuts
  • 2 tablespoons rasped coconut
  • 3 medjoul dates
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon hempseed

 

For the filling

  • 300 grams plant based yoghurt (I used soya)
  • 1 tablespoon rasped coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup
  • 3 hands full of strawberries

 

Method

 

  1. First place the chia seeds in a bowl with about 5 tablespoons of water. Wait for the chia seed to expand and form a jelly, this will take about 10 min.
  2. Then place all the ingredients for the base in a blender and blend until it forms a sticky mixture.
  3. Cut baking paper into smaller pieces and place them in your muffin tin. Divide the sticky nut mixture over 4 bottoms to make a base for your tart. Make sure to put some pressure to create a good base.
  4. Place the yoghurt in a bowl and add the rasped coconut, vanilla powder, agave syrup and the chia seed jelly and mix well.
  5. For the next layer get a heaped tablespoon full of the yoghurt mixture and place it on top of your nut base.
  6. Cut your strawberries into small pieces and add it to the remaining yoghurt mixture.
  7. Use the strawberry yoghurt mixture as a last base to your tart.
  8. Cut half a strawberry and place it on top as a finishing touch.
  9. Then simply place it in the fridge for at least 1.30 hours to make sure your tart sets.

 

Don’t they look great! Summery, flowery and simply beautiful! Enjoy!

Vegan Chocolate Mousse

 

For any chocolate lover (like me) this is the ultimate recipe!

This chocolate mousse is so smooth, flavourful and if you are looking to satisfy your chocolate cravings then this is definitely the most healthy but also the most satisfying dessert you could ever make.

It may seem strange at first to be making chocolate mousse with avocado, but it actually gives the mousse a very smooth texture. All the other ingredients will also overpower the avocado flavour so I’m sure no one will even believe you have used avocado’s in the first place!

 

Ingredients

 

  • 1 banana 
  • 1 large avocado
  • 4 teaspoons cacao 
  • 80 ml almond milk 
  • 8 medjool dates
  • Pinch of salt 

 

Method

 

  1. First, pit your dates and soak them in boiling water for at least 10 min, so they get nice and soft. 
  2. Then place all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until everything is smooth. 
  3. Place your mixture into bowls and leave in the fridge to set. 
  4. When serving top of with a spoon of coconut yoghurt and sprinkle with cacao nibs.

Summery Strawberry Chia Jam

 

Days are getting longer and mornings are getting warmer, which means it’s time to whip out the fresh strawberries and create something summery to get in the spirit! Jam is a classic in any household but it usually consists of lots of sugars. This strawberry jam has no refined sugar but instead has lots of vitamins from the fresh fruit and protein which comes from the chia seeds. This means it’s a great way to start the day!

Put some on your porridge in the morning, on a cracker as a snack or even on a cheeky piece of cake or on pancakes as a topping! It’s super yummy and definitely very healthy!

 

Ingredients

  • 250 grams fresh strawberries
  • 3 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 2 ½ tablespoons chia seeds

Method

  1. Start by placing the agave syrup and strawberries in a sauce pan and bring them to boil.
  2. Let them simmer for about 5 min, stir regularly.
  3. Then mash the strawberries using a fork or a potato masher.
  4. Once the strawberries are mashed stir in the chia seeds.
  5. Lower the heat and let it simmer for about 10-15 min, stir often.
  6. Once the mixture starts to thicken remove from the heat and poor it in an airtight jar.

 

Keep the jam in the fridge and you’ll be able to enjoy it for around a week. Buon a petite!X
