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.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry almonds
  • ¾ cup dry macadamia nuts
  • ¾ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1½ cups cashews, soaked for 2 to 4 hours and drained
  • 2/3 cup coconut water

  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon turmeric (optional, for color)

Instructions

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.

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.
