Vegan lemon tarts! Nutty crust is topped with a creamy vanilla cashew filling for the perfect sweet and tangy treat! Need I say more? Since I have literally inhaled raw cacao for the last few months, I decided to take a little bit of a break from chocolate and try something new. I made these super cute little raw lemon and vanilla cheesecake tarts. They are light and very refreshing, but still satisfy a sweet tooth. The crust is the perfect balance of crunchy and chewy from the dates and almonds. Then, soaked cashews make the filling extra creamy. These vegan lemon tarts taste absolutely delicious, too! The lemon juice perfectly balances out the sweetness of the dates and coconut nectar. It's a great treat for all occasions. Bring them to a party to impress all of the guests, or save them as an on-the-go treats. Whatever you choose to do, you'll be so happy you made these vegan lemon tarts!
