Another delicious dessert made healthier with Baobab from @nourishingamelia. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

Base

  • 1 cup pecans
  • 3/4 cup ground almonds
  • 10 medjool dates

Filling

  • 2 cups fresh mango
  • 1/2 block coconut cream
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp Baobab Powder
  • Sprinkling of shredded coconut for decoration (optional)

Method

Place all the base ingredients into your food processor and blitz until everything is combined together. You’ll be left with a sticky mixture. Press the mixture into mini tart tins (you should make about 6). Then, place the tart tins into the freezer for 45 minutes.

To make the filling, add the ingredients to a food processor and blend until you get a creamy, thick consistency. After 45 minutes, remove the tart tins from the freezer and add the filling into the base of the tarts. Sprinkle shredded coconut on top if you want a bit of extra decoration and deliciousness!

Place back into the freezer for half an hour to let the tarts set.

Remove the tarts from the freezer and let them thaw for 5 minutes before serving. These tarts will last 2-3 days if kept in an airtight container in the fridge.

Baobab is a superfruit that has great things, like antioxidants,dietary fiber,vitamin C, vitamin B, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. The fruit – a big, coconut looking thing – comes from Africa’s picturesque baobab tree, known as the “Tree of Life.

One serving (about 2 tablespoons) contains 24% of your daily recommended dietary fiber and 25% of the daily recommended Vitamin C. And if that wasn’t enough, the fiber in the Baobab fruit pulp acts as a prebiotic – helping your gut grow its good bacteria so that you can better absorb nutrients. And it’s extremely alkaline with a PRAL value of -52. Its tangy and slightly sweet taste works well in smoothies, tomato sauce, desserts, and many other foods.
