No Bake Wild blueberry tarts
This is where freeze dried powders really come into their own! Blending in fresh fruit to a no bake filling causes all kinds of difficulties in terms of trying to get it to set! The blueberry powder works so well, infusing the filling with blueberry flavour as well as bestowing its vibrant purple colour without disrupting the creamy consistency. -Michelle, the recipe creator
Preparation Time – 20 minutes
Servings – 6
For the Tart Shells
- 130g oats
- 20g cacao powder
- 80g pitted Medjool dates
- 50g cacao butter, melted
For the Filling
- 55g cacao butter finely chopped
- 15g cornstarch or tapioca starch + 2 tbsp water
- 60ml non dairy milk of choice
- 100g coconut cream (from the top of a can of full fat coconut milk, discard water)
- 60ml maple syrup
- 4 -5 heaped tsp Arctic Berries Blueberry powder
- Almonds, coconut flakes, bee pollen, cacao nibs, for garnishing
- Grease 6 small loose bottom tart tins with spray oil. I like to line the base of them with a round of parchment paper.
- Blitz oats to a flour consistency in your food processor.
- Mix together oats, cacao powder, dates in your food processor. Once the dates have been fully broken down into the oats add in the melted cacao butter. The mixture should hold together between your fingertips, but it shouldn’t be sticky.
- Divide mixture between your 6 prepared tart tins. Pack down and spread across the bottom and up the sides using your finger tips.
- Mix together starch and water in a small bowl.
- Add the coconut cream, maple syrup and milk to a pot; once hot reduce to a simmer and stir in cornstarch mixture. Stir in blueberry powder and continue to whisk as the mixture thickens.
- Melt cacao powder in a separate pot or in the microwave. Pour into the blueberry mixture and slowly whisk together.
- Divide filling between the 6 tart shells and place into the fridge to set for at least 4 hours or overnight.
- Remove for the tins to serve and garnish with recommended bits and pieces or whatever you fancy! You could also serve them with a scoop of vanilla or chocolate ice cream in the centre!
- Store tarts in the fridge in a sealed container for up to a week. They would likely freeze quite well.
