Raw Orange Vanilla Cream Tarts





Raw orange vanilla cream tarts – you will definitely impress your guests with these!! The orange vanilla “cream” is so smooth, decadent and creamy. It’s the perfect afternoon treat and can you believe, it’s HEALTHY?! What I love about these tarts is that you can top them with your favourite fruit: figs, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, kiwi fruit… the toppings are endless! It’s sugar-free, dairy-free and gluten-free! And the best part is that no-one will know it’s healthy! Sshhhh… Secret Squirrel 😉

    Hey there, just discovered this awesome recipe! By any chance can you substitute the cashew nuts with another type of nuts I.e. almonds or pistachios? Thank youu x

    Hi Naimah,
    Thanks very much for the lovely comments! The cashew nuts give the “creamy” texture so it cannot be substituted with another type of nut. I do have a pistachio tart recipe coming soon, so stay tuned! 🙂

    Hi, have been trying cashew creams in Thermomix, I found if I whizzed the nuts dry it gave a more creamy texture, about how long do you process the mixture, love the taste!!!!!!!!!Happy New Year

    Hi Margaret,
    Process the mixture until you are happy with the consistency. It can sometimes take a few minutes.
    Enjoy! xx.

    Hi There!
    Your website is fantastic! – I cant wait to try all your dessert recipes – is it possible to turn the ‘orange vanilla cream’ into just vanilla cream and leave out the orange juice altogether?

  9. Secret Squirrel

    Hi Haamna,
    Yes – you can leave out the orange juice and replace with 1/4 cup coconut milk and another 2 tsp sweetener.
    Enjoy! xx.

    LOVE your recipes! you are so talented! I loved making these tarts my family is obsessed with them! I was just wondering since this was the first ever raw recipe ive tried, if i did something wrong with the cream, the texture was abit grainy? I dont no what it was suppose to be like. I’ll need to make them more to perfect them! ♥

    Hi Lisa,
    Thank-you so much for the lovely comments!! The cashew cream is supposed to be smooth. You may need to keep them in the food processor for a little longer or add a splash of milk and keep processing until smooth.
    I’m so pleased your family loves them! ♥ xx.

    Hi, can’t wait to make these. Just a question, how exactly do you soak the cashews-Just in water? And do they need to be dried out somehow or can they go straight from the liquid to the food processor? Thank you so much 🙂

  13. Secret Squirrel

    Hi Amanda,
    Put the cashews into a bowl and cover with water, leave overnight to soak. There is no need to dry them, just drain the water and place the cashews straight from the liquid to the food processor.
    Hope that helps xx.

    Hi Donna,
    I’ve never tried to make this into a large tart before, but I would say that it would make a medium sized tart.

    These look delicious! Unfortunately I am allergic to cashews, and have been missing out on the tons of great recipes that use them. Are there any possible substitutions? I would really like to make these!
