Raw Choc-Orange Tart

Suits: GF, DF, Nightshade free, Vegan, Raw, Sugar free.


  • 1L / 4 cups Orange juice, freshly squeezed
  • 350g / 1.5 cups Coconut oil (melted)
  • 180g / ¾ cup Dried figs, roughly chopped
  • 180g / ¾ cup Dried dates. Roughly chopped
  • 100g / ½ cup Cashews
  • 100g / ½ cup Pecans
  • 80g / ¼ cup Cacao
  • 5g (1 tsp) Fresh ginger


  • Roughly chop dates and dried figs, then soak with ginger in orange juice until soft (about 15 minutes). Strain dried fruit and set aside 15-20% for the filling
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, reduce orange juice for 15-20 minutes until it becomes a thin syrup. Wipe the sides regularly to prevent burning
  • In a food processor, blend the larger portion of dried fruit until chunky and combined. Then add 2/3 of the nuts and blend until chunky. Add the remaining 1/3 of nuts and pulse 2-3 times. Chunks of nuts should still be visible through the paste. This is the tart base
  • Line a tart tin or small casserole dish with baking paper and press the tart base in until it is evenly spread
  • In a blender, combine 350ml melted coconut oil, 350ml of reduced orange juice, the remaining dried fruit and 80g of cacao. Blend for 2 minutes or until completely emulsified
  • Pour tart filling into the prepared tin or dish and place in the freezer for 30 minutes to set
  • Slice, serve, garnish and enjoy!

History & Benefits

This simple dessert is raw, vegan and gluten free. The coconut oil will soften and melt in warm temperatures so for best quality, keep chilled in the fridge.
