Preparation

To Prep:

  1. Brew a fresh cup of coffee, at least 1 cup, and allow to cool.
  2. Add 1 1/2 cups cashews to the coffee and allow to soak overnight, soak another 1 cup of cashews in a cup of water overnight.

To Make the Crust:

  1. Blend almonds and oats into a fine powder in a high-speed blender.
  2. Soak dates in warm water for approximately 3 minutes or until they are soft and mushy.
  3. Add the rest of the crust ingredients, including the soaked dates, to the blender and blend until it forms a “dough” ball.
  4. Press this dough into three 4-inch mini springform pans, or any other mini tart container (the springform will make the tarts easier to remove later on).
  5. You will have extra crust left, use it to make bliss balls by rolling into balls and leaving in the refrigerator to set. Grab one or a few for a quick burst of mid-day energy.
  6. Place the tart crusts in the freezer to set while you work on the rest of the layers.

To Make the Chocolate Espresso Layer:

  1. Blend all of the ingredients in a high-speed blender until they form a silky smooth and creamy consistency. Add more coffee by the tbsp if your blender needs a bit more liquid to get it blending.
  2. Add this chocolate espresso layer to the tart tins on top of the crust layer.
  3. Put back in the freezer to set this top layer while you make the vanilla.

To Make the Vanilla Layer:

  1. Blend all of the vanilla layer ingredients in your high-speed blender, ensure that you wash it between the layers (or make the vanilla layer before the chocolate).
  2. Get it just as creamy as the previous layer, adding almond milk 1 tablespoon at a time if you need to help your machine blend it down.
  3. Add this vanilla layer evenly to the top of your mini tarts and smooth out the top.
  4. Allow the tarts to fully set in the freezer for 5-6 hours, or in the refrigerator overnight.
  5. When you’re ready to serve the tarts, you can let them thaw for about 15 minutes or until at an ice cream cake consistency. Then top with a sprinkle of cocoa powder and slice into 12 equal portions.
