Orange Creamsicle Tarts by Carla Aguas
Difficulty 5 minutes Serves 4 tarts
These Orange Creamsicle Tarts have a delightfully smooth sweet orange flavor and a delicious chewy Macaroon Crust.  They are so gorgeous to serve and taste even more divine!


Macaroon Crust:

1 1/2 c Dried Shaved Coconut
1/2 c Cashews, ground
3 tbls Agave
2 tbls Coconut Oil, melted
Pinch Himalayan Salt

Orange Creamsicle Filling:

1 1/2 c Cashews, soaked for 2 hours
1 c fresh Orange Juice
1/4 c Agave Nectar
2 tbls Coconut Oil, melted
2 tbls Orange Zest


Macaroon Crust:

1) Process the coconut and cashews in the food processor until a meal forms.

2) Add the rest of the ingredients and process until the dough becomes sticky.

3) Measure a heaping 1/2 c of dough into each tart tray.  Press into place being sure to create a few mm crust around the sides.  Let sit in the fridge while you prepare the filling.

Orange Creamsicle Filling:

1) Blend all the ingredients until completely smooth.  Depending on how sweet or bitter the orange juice is, adjust to taste.  The flavor should be one that is lightly sweet with a creamy taste.  Either add more orange juice or agave to achieve your desired flavor.

2) Pour into the 4 prepared tart trays and let set in the fridge overnight as the orange zest flavors will give the cream a more intense flavor.

3) Sprinkle a few long zest strips over the top and serve.
