For all chocolate lovers, VOILA! Here we have a tart with a super chocolate and avocado cream, the texture of which is very similar to a mousse cream. It’s one of the simplest and quickest tart recipes that anyone can make it.
You already know very well that I am not expert in making desserts (I’ve often complained / excused myself here on the blog), but when I want to make something delicious, I try to prepare it so that it’s healthy, with fewer calories, with few ingredients and not involving very complicated steps, rules that I also applied this chocolate avocado tart. In the list of ingredients you will see that for the crust I used sugar-free biscuits, instead of butter I used coconut oil, for the sweet part both in the crust and in the cream I added dates paste and the chocolate I use is a dark one. It’s a tart that doesn’t require cooking and is also perfect for those who have a vegan food style, because I didn’t use dairy or animal products.
The idea of this tart came to me after I saw a challenge on Facebook launched by Nestle Dessert Romania, where you have to cook a dessert using Nestle Dessert Noir chocolate, trying to fit it into one of their themes: your favorite dessert, your mother’s favorite dessert or the dessert with which you would conquer someone. The winner’s recipe can be listed in the Nestle Dessert book, it may appear on the package of the chocolate or it can win the most exciting prize, a pastry-bakery course. More details can be found on their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/NestleDessertRomania/. Last year I participated in a contest organised by them with my Carrot Cake recipe, in which I used this chocolate for the glaze.
Regarding my tart, is there any point in telling you that it’s a healthy tart? I know is hard to believe me, perhaps because of the word “chocolate” in the whole equation, but I invite you to follow the list of ingredients below and you will be convinced of this!
170 gr. no sugar added whole wheat / digestive biscuits
100 ml. coconut oil, melted coconut butter (you can replace it with normal melted butter)
80 gr.pitted dates
200 gr. dark chocolate from Nestle Dessert
2 ripe avocado
45 gr. pitted dates
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
3 tablespoons of agave syrup or honey
To make it easier to turn into paste, soak the dates in a bowl with warm water for 30 minutes – 1 hour. After that put them in a food processor and mix them a few times until they become a paste.
Mix the biscuits in a food processor until they have a texture like sand or put them in a hermetic bag or cover them in a clean kitchen towel and beat them several times with a rolling pin or with a cup.
Put the biscuits in a bowl, 80 gr. of dates paste, 100 ml. coconut oil and mix well. Put the crust mixture in a tart tray and flatten the biscuits mixture well both the bottom of the tray and its edges. You can use your hands for the edges and a cup for the bottom. Place the tray in the refrigerator for 1 hour to strengthen the crust.
Melt the chocolate at bain-marie or in a microwave. Put the 2 avocados and the rest of 45 gr. of date paste in a food processor and blend everything into a paste / puree. Put the resulting paste/cream into a bowl, then pour over this the melted chocolate, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, 3 tablespoons of honey and mix everything well from bottom to top with a spatula. The cream is very much like a mousse cream.
Put this dark chocolate and avocado cream over the crust, then put the tray in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours to strengthen. Decorate your tart with your favorite fruits, crushed walnuts, almonds or pistachios, coconut flakes, etc. I chose strawberries and coconut flakes.
Leave the tray in the refrigerator until you serve the chocolate and avocado cream tart.
