Classic No-Bake Coconut Lemon Tart [Vegan, Gluten-Free]


For the Crust:

  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut plus a little more for sprinkling

For the Filling:

  • Half a 15-ounce can of coconut cream
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon agar agar powder
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. Take all of the crust ingredients and pulse together in a food processor, until the mixture starts to clump together.
  2. Lightly dust a 10-inch pie dish with coconut, then press the crust mixture evenly into the dish to make the base. Place in fridge while you prepare the filling
  3. Whisk the coconut cream, lemon juice, zest, maple syrup and agar together in a saucepan. Then mix the corn starch and water together and add to the coconut mixture
  4. Place on a medium low heat and gently heat the mixture to simmer slightly, whisking constantly. As it heats it should thicken. This should take about 8-10 minutes from start to finish
  5. Once the mixture has thickened, take off the heat and leave to cool for a minute or two. Pour into the prepared tart base and leave to cool. Once at room temperature cover and place the Coconut Lemon Tart in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or until ready to serve.

Desserts and dinners that really know how to please a crowd.

I have spent the last three and a half years sailing around the world as a Chief Cook with Sea Shepherd. On board these strictly vegan ships I have learned so much more about cooking, especially having to please a very hungry crew of sometimes 40 people three times a day, whatever the weather or how much the ship is rolling. While patrolling against illegal fishing in West Africa, I decided to start my vegan recipe blog, The Grumpy Sailor.
