  1. Step 1

    Place the cashews and pistachios in separate heatproof bowls. Pour over enough boiling water to cover. Set aside for 4 hours to soften.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, grease a 20cm (base measurement) fluted tart tin with removable base. Place extra pistachios, almonds and coconut in a food processor. Process until finely chopped. Add the date, coconut oil and salt and process until mixture holds together when pinched. Spoon almond mixture into prepared tin. Use a flat-bottomed glass to spread and press the mixture evenly over the base and side of the tin. Place in freezer for 30 mins to set.
  3. Step 3

    Drain the pistachios. Remove skins and discard. Place the pistachios in a blender. Drain the cashews and add to the pistachios in the blender with the coconut cream, avocado, vanilla, lemon juice and maple syrup. Blend until very smooth and creamy. Pour the cashew mixture over almond mixture in the tin and smooth the surface. Place in the freezer for 2-3 hours or until firm. Store in the freezer until ready to eat.
  4. Step 4

    Before serving, remove the tart from the freezer and set aside for 15 mins to soften slightly. Transfer to a serving platter. Cut into wedges to serve.

    Tip: SERVE WITH finely chopped pistachios, pomegranate seeds and halved strawberries
