Have you ever had the moment, when somebody calls you and say they will come over for dinner tonight, and you have only 2 hours to get everything ready?
Sometimes I have the moments like this, and in the past I couldn’t put myself together, I was getting nervous, I ran off time and always forgot about something. But recently, I am getting better, I learned how to handle the situation like this, how to make the delicious healthy dinner in 2 hours and make everybody happy.
So 2 weeks ago was that day, when our friends called us and said they will come over for dinner.
The dinner was easy to make, but I also wanted to make my own dessert, so I just checked the pantry for ingredients and made the raw coconut chocolate tart in 20 minutes. Yes, it needs some time to stay in the refrigerator, so it’s better to start from the dessert when you prepare a quick dinner.
The recipe is gluten, dairy, nuts free. I would say it’s sugar free too, but I used a few drops of stevia in the whipped cream.
Raw Coconut Chocolate Tart with Berries.
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup medjool dates
1/2 cup raw cocoa
1 can coconut milk
few drops of pure stevia
1tsp vanilla extract
fresh berries for topping.
Put all the crust ingredients in the food processor. Process just until completely combined, stop the food processor and pinch a small amount of the mixture together with your fingers, if it holds together it’s done. And if not just process slightly longer.
Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and press down evenly. Put it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes.
The coconut milk for whipped cream should stay in the refrigerator for a while before using it.
Mix the coconut milk with vanilla and stevia with mixer on high speed for 1 minute.
Pour the whipped cream onto the crust and put the fresh berries on top.
Let it stand in the refrigerator for 2 hours before serving.
