Strawberry and Chocolate Buttercream Tart
Difficulty 5 minutes Serves 1, 7 inch springform pan
There's something about the freshness of spring that brings on the cravings for chocolate and juicy strawberries like nothing else! When we stumbled upon this recipe by Emily Von Euw of This Rawsome Vegan Life it was instant salivation and obsession! An almond crust combines with a perfectly sweet chocolate buttercream mousse-like filling and fresh berries and mint leaves to garnish. Delish!

Ingredients

Crust:
1 cup almonds
1 cup dates 

Chocolate buttercream:
1 cup dates
3/4 cup water
Juice from 1 lemon
1/4 cup cacao powder
2 tablespoon cashew butter
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

Topping:
Sliced strawberries 
Mint leaves

Directions

1) To make the crust: pulse the almonds into flour in a food processor.

2) Add the dates and process until they stick together.

3) Press into the bottom and up the side of a lined spring form pan or tart molds. 


4) to make the buttercream: blend all the ingredients until smooth. Refrigerate overnight so it can develop those magical flavours, then spread evenly into your crust.

5) Top off with strawberries and mint. Enjoy the !#$% out of it.
