Mango Tart

This one is a Mango version of the recipe I did a while back with chocolate and strawberries https://foodforthesoul00.wordpress.com/2014/04/05/chocolate-raspberry-tart/

It is a heart healthy desert and full of protein and nutrients.

You can use fresh ripe mangoes or frozen ones. I happened to have both on hand so used a combination.

For the crust you need to grind up

1/2 cup pecans; 1 cup golden raisins; 1/2 cup shredded coconut; 1 teaspoon coconut nectar or agave;

Spread the crust out in 3 pans lined with parchment paper. Put it in the fridge while you work on the filling01-IMG_2279-001 02-IMG_2280-001

For the filling use a good blender and blend up. I used the high power vitamix blender.

2 1/2 cups raw cashews;  1 1/2 cup chopped mango pieces; 1/2 cup water; 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar; 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ,1 tsp of lemon zest, 1 tsp Maca powder (optional)….once blended add a tablespoon and a half of psyllium husk to thicken.
