These No-Bake Blueberry Cashew Tarts have no sugar added, are vegan friendly, dairy-free, and gluten-free. During the summer, it is best to make simple, quick desserts that don’t even require an oven. These No-Bake Blueberry Cashew Tarts are the perfect dessert. All you need is a blender or a food processor, and you can prepare these tarts in less than 15 minutes.
Instead of making my own cashew butter, I used Cashew Acai Spread from NutJar. It is a new Canadian small business that features vegan nut bars, spreads, and butter. They use 100% natural ingredients. The Cashew Acai Spread contains simple ingredients, including cashews, acai berry, coconut oil, and organic cane sugar. It has a nice acidity from the berries, and the spread is nutty and on a thicker side.
Tips/Notes before Making Blueberry Cashew Tarts:
As always, I tried to make the recipe more flexible, so everyone can make these treats with a limited pantry. It is a nut-base tart, and I chose walnut and cashews. You can also add almonds or pecan. I would not recommend using pistachio on its own, simply because it is hard for the crust to hold its shape. It is also important to buy nuts with no salted added. As for the berries, you can choose any berries you prefer – fresh or frozen.
