  • 1/4 c Dried Unsweetened Shaved Coconut
  • 2 tbls Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1 tbls Agave Nectar
  • 1 tbls Lemon Juice

  • 1/4 c Lemon Juice
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Powder
  • Pinch of Celtic Sea Salt

Apricot Topping:

  • 6-8 Apricots
  • 2 tbls Lemon Juice


White Pastry Crust:

1. Process the macadamia nuts and cashews in the food processor until a meal forms.

2. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until the dough is sticky.

3. Empty into a tart pan and firmly press the dough into place being sure to leave a 1/4 inch lip around the edges.

4. Set in the freezer while you prepare the Vanilla Custard Filling.

Vanilla Custard Filling:

1. Blend all the ingredients until completely smooth.

2. Pour into the pie crust and smooth over with a spatula.

Apricot Topping:

1. Pit and slice the apricots length wise and lightly dip them in the lemon juice.  This will prevent the apricots from browning.

2. Arrange them over the top of the tart.
