This tart simply sings of spring! The lemon mousse is astoundingly light and flavorful. Variations include, dividing the crust and filling among 4 to 6 mini tartlet pans instead of using one large one; or serving the lemon mousse by itself, topped with a handful of fresh raspberries.
For the crust: Pulse the almonds, macadamias, and coconut together in a food processor until coarsely ground. Add the raisins and salt, and pulse until the mixture sticks together when pressed between your fingers. Press into a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom (or a pie plate) and refrigerate or freeze to chill completely.
For the mousse: Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
To assemble and serve: Fill the chilled crust with the lemon mousse. Chill the tart for at least one hour, or until ready to serve. Top with fresh raspberries just before serving.
Macadamia nuts: Cashews
Raisins: Pitted dates
Coconut water: ½ cup filtered water plus 2 tablespoons agave nectar
