1 cup cashews, dry
1 cup dehydrated shredded coconut flakes
1 tsp sea salt
2 cups raisins or pitted dates

Ingredients
2 med. avocado (ripe)

1/8 tsp. sea salt
1/4 cup orange zest, for garnished

Tart Crust
1. Pulse the almonds, cashews, 1/2 cup of coconut flakes, sea salt in a
food processor until nuts are in tiny pieces. Do not over process the
mixture, you want chunks in your crust.

the nut bits. The raisins will bind the nuts to form a dough. Flour
each tart mold with dehydrated coconut flakes. Press the dough into
the bottom of the floured tart pan. Set aside.
Cacao Pudding filling
1. Blend all the ingredients into the blender or food processor. Add
more water if the mixture is too thick, if too thin add a little more
cacao powder. Making Raw food is about adjusting, adding a little bit
here and there to get the right consistency.
Assembly

2. Add orange zest to each tart and sprinkle with a little coconut
flakes.
3. Put in the fridge for 30 minutes to allow tarts to set. Remove from
