I am one of those people that loves to put in a little extra elbow grease on holiday meals!

I bake more, decorate the table, and I break out the fine china too which inevitably means I am also signing up for hand washing the dishes when we are done.

I can’t even begin to tell you how many holidays I’ve taken on too much and tried to make everything too perfect. My intentions are always good, but inevitabley I wind up completely exhausted, with aching feet, and no real memories of the holiday other than how much time I spent in the kitchen. Not this year!

My friend, it’s 2019, and I’ve decided that this year, I’m going to let my freezer do the heavy lifting when it comes to dessert!! 

Well, if you want to get technical I’m putting my food processor AND the freezer to work. Basically, if you can measure and pour ingredients you can make this Creamsicle Tart because all of the hard work is done by the blades of the processor. I suggest making the tart 2-3 days before your Easter feast, that way it can just be hanging out in the freezer, waiting on you to add some fresh fruit to the top before it’s served.

Description

This tart is delicious with sliced oranges and blackberries, but it would also be great with sliced strawberries or raspberries too! 


Scale

Ingredients

For the crust:

Coconut oil or spray for greasing the pan

1/2 cup Pamela’s Almond Flour

1/4 cup raw cashews

1/4 cup raw pecan halves

1 cup desiccated/shredded unsweetened coconut

2 tablespoons melted coconut oil

1 tablespoon orange blossom honey

1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt

For the filling: 

1 cup raw cashews, soak overnight or for 30 minutes in boiling water, drained and rinsed

1 cup full fat coconut milk

1/2 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup orange blossom honey

zest of 1 large Cara Cara orange or 2 small

For the topping: 

2 Cara Cara oranges, peel and pith removed, sliced into thin rounds

1/41/2 cup fresh blackberries

1 teaspoon bee pollen, optional


Instructions

To make the crust: 

Lightly spray a 11x7x1-inch tart pan that has a removable base with coconut oil, set aside.

Place the Pamela’s Almond Flour , cashews, pecans, coconut, coconut oil, honey, vanilla bean paste, and salt into the bowl of a food processor fitted with the “S” blade. Process until there are no large bits remaining and the ingredients have started to clump together. Gently press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared tart pan. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

To make the filling: 

Wipe out the bowl of the food processor. Place the soaked and rinsed cashews, coconut milk, coconut oil, honey, and orange zest into the bowl and process for 3-4 minutes until creamy and smooth. Pour the filling over the crust, smooth the top, and transfer to the freezer to freeze until set, about 4 hours.

To serve:

10 minutes before you are ready to serve remove the tart from the freezer. Gently remove the sides of the pan, exposing the sides of the tart. Decorate the top of the tart with sliced oranges, blackberries, and a sprinkle of bee pollen. Slice with a very sharp knife and serve immediately. Freeze any leftovers. The fruit topping will freeze as well, but frozen oranges and berries have a great icy crunch and they’re totally delicious!
