This refreshing, tasty-looking recipe comes to us from the lovely Heather Pace.

Mint Chocolate Tart

INGREDIENTS (FOR CRUST)

  • 1 cup almonds, ground
  • 3/4 cup pitted, packed dates
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS (FOR CRUST)

  • In a food processor, mix ingredients into a moist dough that presses together easily. Add 1-2 teaspoons water if needed.
  • Press the mixture into a 6″ tart pan. Set aside.

INGREDIENTS (FOR FILLING)

  • 2 1/2 cups cashews
  • 1 cup lightly packed mint leaves
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons agave
  • 5-8 drops mint essential oil, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of Himalayan salt
  • 3 tablespoons cacao butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

INSTRUCTIONS (FOR FILLING)

  • In a blender, combine all but the butter and oil until smooth and creamy.
  • Start with less mint essential oil, as it is very strong!
  • Now add the last 2 ingredients and blend to incorporate.
  • Taste the mixture – add more mint oil if needed (or mint leaves).

Note: You can sub mint extract for the mint oil if necessary.
