Raw Chocolate Nectarine Tart

Nectarines have to be one of our favourite stone fruits, they can be used in salads, smoothies, desserts and meat dishes. We like to eat ours raw so that they are juicy and to emphasise the delicious flavour of the fruit. The “Hunny” nectarine, grown right here in New Zealand by Yummy has been used in this tart as it is a lot sweeter in flavour than your average nectarine, meaning we would not have to sweeten the tart with any liquid sweeteners.

Raw Chocolate Mousse Tarts

These tarts are such a beautiful desert and can be served to anyone who is vegan, dairy free, gluten free or refined sugar free.  They are best stored in the freezer so that the mousse filling is nice and hard.  I topped mine with flaked almonds and a bit of coconut but anything can be used.  Fresh fruit, cacao nibs or bickinis would also be delicious.
