Date & Cardamom Tart

I’m not usually a fan of dates, or dried fruit in general, as they tend to turn everything into sticky sweet mush. However, the other day I went to a dinner and was asked to bring dessert that was both gluten and dairy free as well as low carb, and I discovered a new use for dates: a light, creamy (yet non-dairy), middle-eastern spiced tart!

This tart is both easy to make, delicious and elegant, and does extremely well as a dessert served with coffee or dessert wine, even for those of us who enjoy gluten and dairy (they won’t taste the difference, I promise!).

Date & Cardamom Tart ingredients:

  • Cashew nuts
  • Dates
  • Coconut
  • Coconut oil
  • Coconut cream
  • Cardamom
  • Gelatine
  • Eggs

Pretty healthy, right? If you’re into sugar, you can sprinkle some coconut sugar and cardamom for spicing on top just before serving, or top with chocolate. Strawberries work extremely well with this tart to balance the different flavours.
