Persimmon Tart

Persimmon Tart

This persimmon tart is a light and lovely winter dessert, fully raw vegan, elegant, beautiful, and totally delicious! Thrill your guests with this dairy-free, no-bake, gluten-free, easy raw food dessert recipe.

Start by selecting some beautiful persimmons from your local market.

Next, you’ll build a super simple raw vegan tart crust using delicious, everyday ingredients like nuts and dates.

Use a mandolin slicer and a good chef knife to slice up your persimmons and apples in order to make the filling.

Get the fruit slices nice and coated with sweet gooey filling sauce. Yum! Next we’ll move on to the tart assembly.

Layer persimmon and apple slices in a beautiful circular design for your tart.

Crush raw almonds and mix with some low-glycemic coconut sugar for a tasty crust topping.

Once your persimmon tart has been assembled, it’s time to put it into your trusty dehydrator and let it work its magic! Dehydrating food and keeping it under 118 degrees Fahrenheit means the food stays raw.

Check on your persimmon tart from time to time, and after around 8 hours you will have this ooey, gooey, chewy treat!
