Kiwi Tarts

Ingredients

For Crust

1 cup of roasted hazelnuts

6 medjool dates

For Filling:

1/2 cup full fat coconut cream

4 kiwis (sliced) a dash of vanilla

Preparation

Start by opening your can of coconut cream and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours. This helps make the cream nice and thick when whipped.

Next, combine and food process  the hazelnuts and dates. Then form the mixture into small tartlet shapes. Refrigerate for an hour.

Use a hand blender, standing mixer or a good old fashion fork to process the coconut cream into whipped cream. Add a dash of vanilla and agave or honey to taste. Then add a dollop of coconut whipped cream into the tartlets and top with a slice of kiwi!
