Raw Coconut Cream Tart

I know it's the season for all things pumpkin, apples, pears, and spice but today I thought something coconut would be nice! 
It's been sooo long since my last post. I haven't been in the kitchen too much lately. I've been visiting my mom in British Columbia and just finished taking a self development course at Yasodhara Ashram. Also, I've been on a sugar cleanse (I've posted about my cleanses before. You can read more HERE and click on some of the links for past ones). I like periodic cleanses, and I felt this was the perfect time since I've been on holiday and not having to fill chocolate or dessert orders. These cleanses always leave me feeling so refreshed, lighter, more clear headed, and gives me a boost in metabolism. 

Coconut Cream Tart
Makes a 9" tart

Crust 

1 cup almonds
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1 1/4 cup shredded coconut
1 cup packed raisins
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1- 2 teaspoons water

Grind the almonds and sunflower seeds down to flour in a food processor.
Add the coconut, salt and raisins. Grind until completely broken down.
Add the water and vanilla, starting with 1 teaspoon water.
Process until the mixture forms a dough that will hold together. Add more water if needed.
Press into and up the sides of a 9" tart pan with removable bottom.

Filling

2/3 cup packed young coconut pulp
2/3 cup cashews
1/2 cup coconut water
1/4 cup coconut nectar
3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
4 tablespoons melted coconut butter
Few drops stevia, if needed

In a high speed blender combine the coconut pulp, cashews, coconut water, nectar, vanilla and salt. Blend until smooth and cashews are broken down.
Add the oil and butter. Blend to incorporate.
Taste and add a few drops stevia if needed.
Pour the filling into the crust.
Set in the fridge for 12 hours before serving or in the freezer for part of the time.

Make a large tart or make several mini ones!
