This recipe came to us from a Blue Zones cooking class taught by nutritionist Sarah Pruett Soufl of Soufl Nutrition. The idea of the class was to incorporate more seeds and nuts into Soufl created this recipe and we tweaked it just a wee bit to suit our tastes.

The crust starts out with walnuts, which is great news for us, because we’re still reaping the benefits of that walnut windfall we had a few weeks ago. As for the filling, while it does have avocado as the base, the other flavors override the avocado taste. That means you get all of the rich and silky creaminess of avocados with none of the vegetable-y taste.

Ingredients

Crust

  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 Tbsp agave syrup
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder

Filling

  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • 1 Tbsp agave syrup
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1 cup frozen pitted cherries

Instructions

For the crust:

  1. Place all of the crust ingredients in a food processor and process until well mixed. The mixture should look like wet dirt - it should be pliable and sticky. Press the mixture evenly into a 10-inch tart pan (or six smaller individual tart pans) and place in the freezer.

For the filling:

  1. Place all of the filling ingredients except for the cherries in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Add the cherries and pulse a few times so the cherries are roughly chopped but not totally pureed. Pour the mixture into the crust and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.
