These Chocolate Cherry Mousse Tarts will blow your mind. All natural ingredients, no chemicals, but without compromising the flavor! And, conveniently in a single serving portion. Make sure there are enough people around to eat the other ones, or you may accidentally eat a second one 😉
Ingredients for 4 tarts:
1/2 cup almonds
2 tbls coconut oil
1 cup cashew cream
12 cherries (cut in half and take out pits)
4 tsp cacao powder
Honey to drizzle on top (optional)
ONLY use 1 tbls of water if your cashew cream is very thick. If not, don’t use water at all.
So I’ve been on a cashew cream kick. IT’S DELICIOUS! I can’t wait to attempt to make vodka sauce with it instead of using heavy cream!!! Not that I’m dairy free, but I do try to avoid dairy because of all of the hormones and chemicals in our poor cows 😦
If you missed the video on how to make basic cashew cream with just 2 ingredients, watch this!
After I made it and tasted it, my mind went crazy thinking of a million things to make with it, from totally sweet all the way to salty and maybe even spicy!
For this dessert recipe, here’s what you need to do.
- First off, you need to make a batch of cashew cream!
- Blend the almonds and coconut oil together. Press the mixture into the bottom of the tarts to make the crust.
- Blend the cashew cream, cacao powder, cherries, and salt. If your mixture is SUPER thick, you can add a tablespoon of water. If not, leave it. You don’t want it too liquid-ey.
- Pour into the tarts and feel free to drizzle some honey on top to sweeten it up a little. Refrigerate for about 2 hours, or, until they have hardened up like mousse!
Seriously guys, this was delicious. Take a pic if you make them! Enjoy!
