Easiest Healthy Dessert Recipe. Ever.

And when I say it is easy, I mean it really is. And it’s actually healthy. So, if you are a novice, or lack confidence in the kitchen, you can whip this together in about 20 minutes and feel really good about it. I had this the first time a few years ago and remember thinking how skilled the lovely woman who prepared it must have been…and she probably was….but in all reality not much skill is needed here. I have made this more than a few times and am not sure why I didn’t write about it until now. Better late than never.

Raw Avo Lime and Coconut Tart

IMG_6889

For ingredients all you need is a couple of ripe avocados, a few limes, some unsweetened coconut flakes, some dates, some pecans, some honey and some coconut oil.

For equipment you need a blender and 3 or 4 tart pans, even a pie pan will do. And a freezer.

1. Measure out approx 1 cup of dates, 2/3 cup of chopped pecans, 1/2 cup of coconut flakes, and a 1/2 tablespoon of lime zest and set aside. Prepping your ingredients before hand is called Mise en Place. Its fun to prep, it looks pretty and it feels pro.

2. Blend above ingredients until they are evenly blended and the mixture is sticky.

3. Layer the bottom of a lightly oiled pan(s) with the mixture. No need to press the mixture into the sides of the tart pan, but if you are using the pie pan and have enough mixture, why not.

4. Set the pan(s) in the freezer for a bit and continue with the recipe.

5. Measure out  2 cups of avocado flesh, 2/3 of lime juice, 1 tablespoon of lime zest and 1/2 honey. You can also add a tablespoon of coconut oil if you like. I have made it with and without and I like both.

6. Add items to blender and blend ingredients until smooth and pour into pan(s). Freeze for at least 2 hours. Let sit approx 30 minutes before serving. Top with some toasted coconut flakes and serve!
