Directions:

  1. Lightly grease four (5-inch) individual, fluted tart tins and set aside on a tray.
  2. Place the dates and pecans for the crust in the food processor and blend until they start to clump together. Divide the mixture equally among the tins. Press the mixture onto the base and up the sides of each one, making sure it is of even thickness. Place in the fridge to set for 30 minutes.
  3. Place the soaked and drained cashews, dates, vanilla extract, lime juice, and cold water in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth and mixture has a creamy texture.
  4. Once the tart bases have set and feel firm, remove from the fridge and divide the cashew cream among them. Spread it out evenly with the back of a spoon. Place back into the fridge to cool for 15 minutes.
  5. Top each tart with berries and mint sprigs.
  6. ENJOY!
