Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 cup gluten-free all purpose flour use plain all purpose flour if not gluten-free
  • 1 cup ground almonds or almond flour
  • 4 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

Filling

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 175°C (350°F). Lightly grease the base and sides of a 9.5" tart tin with some oil or vegan butter.
  • In your food processor, combine the gluten-free flour, almond flour, vegan butter, maple syrup, and salt until the ingredients stick together to form a dough.
  • Evenly press the dough half of the dough into the sides of the tart tin first, then press the remaining dough into the base of the tin. With a fork, gently prick the dough several times.
  • Bake the crust for 15-18 minutes until slightly browned, then allow to cool (do not remove the tart from the tin).
  • Make a coulis with the frozen raspberries, add them to a saucepan with a tablespoon of water and bring to a simmer on medium heat. Cook for 10-12 minutes until the raspberries have broken down and the mixture has reduced by about a half. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly.
  • To a high-speed processor, add the raspberry coulis, soaked macadamia nuts, melted white chocolate, coconut milk, yogurt, Amaretto, and maple syrup, and blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Pour the filling into the cooled tart base. Smooth out the top with a spatula and place in the fridge to set for 6 hours, or preferably overnight.
  • Once set, garnish with some more melted white chocolate and fresh raspberries.

Storage

  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge and consume within 3-4 days.

Notes

  • Soaked macadamia nuts: Soak in water for 4 hours, rinse and drain.
  • Chilled coconut milk: Refrigerate the tin of coconut milk overnight, then only use the thick cream from the top of the can.
