Raw Vegan Berry Tarts with Chocolate Mousse

For a long time, I’ve been too scared of using the mini tartlet pans because I can never get the bloody things out! >_<;

You can just picture me scrapping the crust off, breaking it, cursing and thinking how on earth do I fix that, well, until I discovered this amazing way you can use it without all of that happening…

Use those little white circle muffin parchment cup things! Even though the muffin parchment paper cups are NOT the shape of the tart pans, when you press it on the pan, the paper will take the shape of the pan. YAY!

So this totally solved a big problem of mine, I can make TARTS again!

What is the sage doing in the pics, you may ask? Well, absolutely no reason, just to sit there looking pretty. Of course, if you dare to try a different flavour, you can always add some sage leaves, but I do not guarantee any result as I didn’t actually do that.

Anyway, I’m so happy I finally made use of the leftover berries I was using for a smoothie earlier this week. They always make such PRETTY desserts. OMG, the avocado this time turned out extra thick, which was really great. I think it has to do with that this avocado was not overripe, I tend to sometimes leave it in the fridge for too long.

Raw Vegan Berry Tarts with Chocolate Mousse

Crust
1/2 cup oat flour
1/4 cup walnuts
2 tablespoons almonds
2 dried figs
1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk
1 tablespoon walnut oil (or other preferred oil)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Filling
1 avocado
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
1 tablespoon lucuma
1 tablespoon cacao power
1 tablespoon dark cocoa powder (eg Hershey’s Special Dark)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Topping
A small handful frozen raspberries and blueberries

Be sure that you’ve frozen a small handful of raspberries and blueberries. The raspberries will not break properly if they aren’t frozen, so this step is important.

Add all the ingredients for the crust into the blender. Blend on full speed until the mixture is crumbly and somewhat sticky. You may need to open the blender, spoon it around a little and blend again.

Spoon the mixture into a bowl and set it aside for now, then clean out the blender.

Remove the skin and pit from the avocado and add it to the blender, then add the rest of the filling ingredients in. Blend on full speed again until everything is completely smooth and well mixed. Again, use a spoon to mix it after a while, then put it back to be blended on high speed again.

Leave the avocado chocolate mousse in the blender for now.

Prepare 3 mini tartlet pans and three muffin parchment paper (believe me, you will find the parchment paper useful, as it helps get the crust OUT of the pans easily).

Put the muffin parchment paper on the tartlet pans.

Spoon 1/3 of the filling onto the muffin parchment paper sitting on the tartlet pan and press it around to form a crust. Then, add a couple of spoonfuls of avocado mousse in the middle and use a spoon to even out the top.

Finally, get a frozen raspberry or two and break it into small pieces and spread it on top of the tart. Add a blueberry as well.

Repeat for the other two tarts and eat any remaining avocado mousse filling.

put it in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes, then carefully take the tarts with the parchment paper out of the tartlet pan, and peel the parchment paper off. (If you didn’t use it, you may end up furiously scraping the crust off the pan, with little or no success, resulting in broken tarts.)
