Festive Fruit Tarts
(Makes 8 servings)
In a food processor grind the walnuts slightly. Add the rest of the ingredients and continue to blend until it is all well mixed (do not blend until it gets oily). With your hands or using cupcake molds shape little cups out of the dough. Dehydrate them for 3 hours at 115F or just refrigerate for 30 minutes (in this case the cups will be softer).
For the strawberry filling:
2 tbsp raw agave nectar or sweetener of choice
½ cup melted raw cacao butter or nut butter of choice
Chop the strawberries and mix them with agave nectar and melted cacao butter.
For the garnish:
Fresh mint leaves
variation: use any seasonal fruits
Fill each walnut-raisin cup with strawberry filling mixture. Decorate each tart with a scoop of fresh mango, a slice of strawberry, 2 blueberries and a fresh mint leaf. Put into freezer for a couple minutes and serve. If you are not planning to serve it right away just keep it refrigerated.
