Vanilla Cherry Tarte
(vegan, no bake, gluten free, oil free, soy free, refined sugar free)
I've always, always, always, always wanted to make my own Tarte. But never have I ever found a recipe for a crust that wasn't either super sticky or completely falling apart.
And tasty, that's the most important point! So I decided to make my own one. Feel free to swap my crust for your favorite tarte crust recipe!
Vanilla Cherry Tarte
Serves: 6 - 8 small sliced
Preperation time: 20 minutes
Freezing time: at least 2 - 3 hours or overnight
- 20g ground flax and 60g water, mixed to create a flax egg
- 70g coconut flour or almond flour
- 7 to 10 dates (depending on the size and stickyness of your dates)
- 100mL plant milk (I used coconut milk)
- 1 package (=37g) pudding powder, vanilla flavored (*see notes if you don't have access to such a thing)
- 500mL plant milk
- 50g coconut sugar (or other sweetener of choice)
- a dash of vanilla extract
- a dash of cinnamon
- 200g vegan quark creme or extra thick vegan yogurt
- 100g cherries (pitted if desired)
- blend all the ingredients together (preferably in a food processor)
- press down in a tarte pan or other freezer safe form of choice
- freeze for until the filling is ready to be added
- mix the pudding powder with a small amount of the plant milk, while heating the rest of the milk with the sugar and the cherries until it starts to cook
- remove from the stove and add the pudding powder mixture, stir immediately and keep stirring until the mixture starts to thicken (you might have to put it back on the stove for a bit)
- once it starts to thicken, remove from the stove for good and add your vegan quark
- mix until well combined
- add the slightly cooled mixture on top of your crust and decorate as desired (I used cacao nibs and more cherries)
- put in the freezer until hardened
- If you don't have access to pudding poweder, you can easily make your own by using around 37g of cornstarch and some vanilla powder or vanilla bean paste.
- You might end up having some filling extra. You can put that in the fridge and enjoy cold as a snack!
