Ingredients

For the Base

200g of plain flour (I use gluten-free)
100g of coconut oil (Melted)
5 tablespoons of maple syrup

For the Filling

150g of cashew nuts
(soaked overnight and drained)
50g of coconut oil (Melted)
1 tablespoon of maple syrup
250g of strawberries

Toppings (optional)

Dairy-free white chocolate
Vegan pink food colouring
Strawberries

Method

To make the crusts

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees c and line a mini tartlet tin with greaseproof paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, melted coconut oil and maple syrup.
    Mix and bring together with your hands until a dough forms.
  3. Press the dough into the lined tins, prick with a fork and pop into the oven to bake for 9-10 minutes, until golden in colour.
    Allow to cool fully before filling.

To make the filling

  1. Place the drained cashew nuts, coconut oil, maple syrup and strawberries in a food processor/blender and whizz up on high until smooth.
    This will take around 5 minutes.
  2. Pour into the mini tart cases and level.
    Pop back into the freezer to set. 
    This will take around 2-3 hours. I like to allow mine to set overnight.
  3. Defrost fully and serve with fresh strawberries. I also added on some dairy-free white chocolate dyed pink. It looks really effective.

Tip: The cashew nuts need to be soaked overnight in water. Just make sure the water is covering the nuts!
