Mocha Tart

This is actually a recipe from Mother's Day, we kind of forgot about it which is hard to believe considering how amazing it was! You would never guess it was low-glycemic, gluten-free and vegan. Seriously amazing, you guys have GOT to get some dandy blend. This was such a nice, fluffy and light dessert after a hearty veggie meal.

1 can full fat coconut milk
5 tsp dandy blend or alternative instant coffee
1 tbsp lucuma powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 packet powdered white stevia

Crust: (I didn't measure everything exactly for this crust, you may need to add more oil)
3/4 cup ground almonds
1/2 cup coconut shredded, ground finer
1/4 cup carob powder
1/4 cup tahini
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 packet powdered stevia
Pinch of salt

Combine ingredients for crust, press into an 8-inch pie pan/plate. You may have extra crust leftover, which is nice to sprinkle on top. Save it! Combine ingredients for filling. Pour filling into crust, cover with plastic wrap, set in fridge to firm over night. Serves 8.


  1. Oh, my goodness, that sounds incredible! I've never heard of dandy blend. I used to use coffee sub, but they all seem to have barley in them. . . will have to look for that! :)

  2. this looks like my kind of dessert. definitely bookmarking! :)

  3. I've been meaning to buy dandelion "coffee" for months now! Silly me, I'm sure it'll be better than the horrible instant coffee at work...

    This looks AMAZING!

  4. How ingenious to use tahini in the crust! This sounds like a perfect treat - I love your recipes!

  5. @Hannah: dandelion coffee IS so much better I've never been a coffee drinker but I can see how people get addicted to the flavour and comfort of it.

  6. This looks SO delicious! I am loving your blog!! :)

  7. OMG, this tart looks incredibly delicious :-D

  8. Mine didn't solidify. Any sugggestions?

    1. what kind of coconut milk did you use? was it full fat? (best brand to use would be thai kitchen) If you don't have thai kitchen, use regular coconut milk with some coconut oil. (Also, the stevia is a key factor because if you sweeten it with syrup/sugar it won't set either) Good luck! :)
