For the Base

  • 100 g Vegan Digestive Biscuits (Graham Crackers) I used McVities Light
  • 60 g coconut oil

For the Chocolate Tart

  • 100 g cashew nuts
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 30 g coconut oil
  • 100 ml almond milk
  • 50 g vegan dark chocolate

For the Topping

  • 125 g frozen raspberries
  • 2 tsp icing sugar (powdered sugar)
  • 50 g vegan dark chocolate


  • Soak the cashew nuts in boiling water for an hour then drain

To Make The Base

  • Lightly grease your tin/s (I used two heart shaped cake moulds but you can also make this recipe in one 15cm/6inch loose bottomed deep springform cake tin or tart dish)
  • Crush your biscuits or crackers in a paper bag (or between two sheets of baking parchment) - I gently bash mine with a rolling pin.
  • Melt the coconut oil, gently, in a small pan. Remove from heat and stir in your biscuit crumbs.
  • Press the mixture into your prepared tins and chill while you make the filling.

To Make The Filling

  • Blend the soaked and drained cashew nuts, maple syrup, coconut oil and almond milk in a high speed blender until smooth
  • Melt the chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of hot water, stir into the cashew mix.
  • Pour the chocolate cream filling onto the chilled base and return to the fridge to chill for about an hour.

To Make The Topping

  • Heat the raspberries in a saucepan with a tablespoonful of water and the icing sugar until defrosted and bubbling. Push the mixture through a fine sieve to remove the seeds. You should have a thick drizzling sauce - if it's too thin return to the pan and bubble for a minute or two until reduced.
  • Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water.

To Finish

  • Carefully remove your tarts from their moulds.
  • Drizzle the chocolate over your chilled desserts artistically. Or just pour the whole lot over the top!
  • Drizzle the raspberry coulis around your desserts or over the top - whatever takes your fancy!
