To Live for Chocolate Tart – in the Thermomix

To Live for Choc Tart

First of all, let me just say that I found this recipe online this week. By no means is it my own recipe – all credit goes to Whole Food Simply. I’ve simply converted their recipe (see here for the original) into the Thermomix recipe.   What I especially love about this recipe is that there is no sugar! That, and no baking time are winners in my eyes!

150g Raw Hazelnuts
100g Medjool Dates (approx. 12 small or 6 large) – make sure they are pitted!
70g Dessicated Coconut

1 medium-large avocado
40g cocoa (or cacao, or carob)
200g Medjool Dates (approx. 1 cup) – again, make sure they are pitted!
60-80g Butter (the original recipe uses coconut oil, but I only had fresh butter on hand)
100g Raspberries, frozen is fine

1. Weigh all ingredients into the Thermomix bowl.
2. Mix Speed 7, for 10 seconds.
3. Press into lightly greased flan tin (with removable base); or spring-form cake tin. I use the MC on some baking paper to press in tightly.
4. Place into freezer whilst making topping.

1. No need to clean the bowl! Weigh in topping ingredients (excluding the raspberries), and mix Speed 4-5 for 10 seconds.
2. Scrape down the side of the bowls, and mix again Speed 4-5 for 5 seconds.
3. Weigh in the raspberries; and mix Speed 5 for 5 seconds (mix on stirring speed if using fresh raspberries).
4. Dollop the topping onto the base and smooth with a spatula.
5. Place in the freezer, and store there until ready to use!

It’s quite easy to slice when it’s cold out of the freezer. Plate up and leave to rest for 10-15 minutes before serving. Lovely as a dessert, or slice cold into bite size pieces for a quick and healthy snack!

Double Layered Raw Chocolate Fudge (nut-free)

Guess what I’ll be making this weekend…

Hot Pink Chilli

I posted this photo on my personal facebook and Instagram last night and it caused quite the furor! I’d go so far as to say, it ‘went viral’. Ok not quite but I had everyone begging me for the recipe, so here it is🙂 I take no responsibility for the over consumption of said fudge!

I can in no way, claim this recipe as my own,. I found this over at PaleOMG and let me tell you… it is dangerous to have this in large amounts in one’s fridge.D.A.N.G.E.R.O.U.S! I modified Juli’s recipe a little bit to suit our needs and this i what I came up with. I’m sorry for the lack of photos. There are only 2 pieces left…

  • 200g / 1 C Coconut Oil (melted or solid)
  • 240g / 1 C Tahini
  • 150g / 1/2 C Coconut nectar (or raw honey, or real maple syrup)
