Tart Base
85g chopped dates
40g coconut flakes
1 tbsp melted coconut oil
30g cacao powder
1/2 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract

Tart Filling
2 avocados

125g coconut sugar
120g cacao powder
100g coconut oil
200ml coocnut milk
60ml maple syrup
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt


Place all the base ingredients in a food processor and blend until you get a cumbly, sticky texture. Press the dough down into a 21cm (8-inch) cake tin, making sure it is as even as possible. Chil in the fridge for 15 minutes while you prepare the filling.

Blend all the filling ingredients in a food processor or high-speed blender until smooth, then transfer to the cake tin and smooth over the base. Allow to set in the fridge for six hours before serving. To serve, dust with some cacao powder, chocolate sauce, fresh edible flowers and berries.
