Author Notes: Chef and amateur kickboxer Watt Sriboonruang started making raw and vegan treats to satisfy her sweet tooth without hindering her training.

Directions

  1. Soak cashews overnight or at least 5 to 6 hours.
  2. In a food processor, process all the crust ingredients until well blended (15 to 20 seconds). Don't over-blend it.
  3. Press the crust mixture on the pie/quiche pan.
  4. Freeze it (we use a bottomless pie pan so we can un-pan the crust after freezing it for at least an hour).
  5. Rinse and drain the soaked cashews. In a blender, blend all filling ingredients until smooth and creamy.
  6. Pour the cream mixture on the crust (the crust will be filled only halfway. We want to leave enough room for the fresh fruits).
  7. Add your favorite fruits in the filling. Make sure you push all the fruits all the way down to the bottom on the crust. You can add as many fruits as you wish. We stop once the filling raises up the same level of the edges of the crust.
  8. Let it set in the freezer for 30 minutes, or in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  9. Add your favorite fruits on top when the filling is set.

I just wanted to say how much I appreciate the vegan recipes I have seen here recently. Thanks!

Could almond meal be used instead of cashew?

Why would you put the tart back in the freezer after you’ve added the fruit? Instruction 7 says add fruit, 8 says put it in freezer (or fridge) and 9 says to add fruit. ??

Hi Danine, the way I read and interpreted the directions, the 1 set of fruit is pushed down into the custard until all that fruit is submerged and the custard is now level with the pie pan. Once removed from the freezer, a 2nd set of fruit is added to cover the custard. <br />
