Affluent Society has teamed up with Califia Farms to bring you a series of easy-to-make-at-home recipes. Califia is one of USA's fastest-growing, independent and natural product companies. White nectarines give a delicious flavour as it pairs incredibly well with the beautiful vanilla flavour coming from Califia Farms Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk. The thick and creamy texture makes it perfect for vegan desserts like this. Yellow flesh nectarines will also work if you can't get any white ones. Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 20 mins Total time: 30 mins Serves: 8-10 Ingredients:
BASE: 3 cups almond meal 1 cup quick oats 6 TBSP grapeseed oil (or other neutral oil) 6 TBSP maple syrup NECTARINE FILLING: 4 white flesh nectarines, stone removed 1½ cups raw cashews (soaked for at least 3-4 hours or overnight) ½ cup cacao butter, melted ½ cup Califia Farms Unsweetened Vanilla milk TBSP maple syrup Sliced nectarines and raspberries to decorate Method 1. For the base, mix all ingredients in a large bowl until sticky. Press down evenly onto the base and sides of the lightly greased round tart tin. 2. Bake in the oven at 180 C for 10-12 minutes or until the edges go slightly golden. Set aside 3. For the filling, remove stones from nectarines and place them in the blender (I left the skin on). Meltdown cacao butter over low heat and add to the blender. Add all the remaining filling ingredients and blend until as smooth and creamy as possible 4. Pour over the tart base and place in the fridge to set (will firm up in the fridge but won't go very hard and solid) once set, decorate with nectarine slices and raspberries. Slice and Enjoy.
