  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 4 large or 6 medium Medjool dates, pitted


  • 12 oz fresh raspberries or other berries of choice
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tbsp coconut butter (also called coconut manna or coconut cream concentrate)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, softened
  • 4-6 Medjool dates (use 4 if your berries are very sweet, or 6 if they are less sweet)



Make the crust: Place the nuts in a food processor and process until they are a very fine consistency, almost like nut flour. Add the dates and pulse until the mixture becomes sticky and forms a giant "ball" in the processor.

Press the crust mixture into one 9-inch round tart or pie pan or four 4-inch tart pans (lined with parchment paper if you have it) and place in the freezer to set.

Make the filling: Place the berries, lemon juice, coconut butter, coconut oil, and dates in the food processor and process until smooth. Taste to make sure you have added enough dates for your desired sweetness.

Remove the crust from the freezer and fill the pan with the berry mixture. Place the tart back on the freezer and chill for at least 2 hours.

Remove the tart from the freezer a few minutes before serving to soften it slightly. Garnish with lemon zest or slices, if desired.
