There are times when you want to seriously impress your dinner party guests. Don't let a SIBO diet stop you! Our raw chocolate and mandarin tart recipe is seriously amazing. It is rich, decadent and will amaze your guests that there's no cream or refined sugars in this show-stopping dessert.
We love that there's no cooking in this recipe. It is completely raw. This also means you get all of the goodness from the raw cacao powder and honey, as they don't get affected by the heat. We love to change the fruit we use depending on the seasons. We use mandarins in winter, pomegranates in spring, berries in summer and grapefruit slices in autumn.
If you can't tolerate butter or honey, replace them with a fat and sweetener that you can eat. You might like to substitute the butter with coconut oil or the honey with glucose or natural stevia.

raw chocolate and mandarin tart recipe
Classification: Remove and Restore phase, gluten-free, vegetarian
1 cup macadamia nuts
2 tbs raw cacao powder
½ tsp stevia
Coconut oil for greasing
1 cup coconut milk
¼ cup raw cacao powder
½ cup honey
1 tsp vanilla powder
½ cup coconut oil, melted
2/3 cup raw cacao powder
4 tbs coconut milk
½ - 1 tsp stevia
3 mandarins, divided into individual segments, seeds removed
Lightly grease a large fluted loose base pie dish with coconut oil.
Place the ingredients for the base in a food processor and blitz until well combined. Transfer into the pie dish, then using your hands, flatten out to cover the base and sides. Refrigerate until firm.
Meanwhile, make the filling. Place all of the ingredients for the filling in a food processor or blender and blitz until very smooth and creamy. Pour into the set base and return to the fridge.
Once the filling has firmed, make the topping. Mix the melted coconut oil with the cacao powder, coconut milk and stevia. Stir to combine and remove any lumps. Pour over the filling and refrigerate until set.
Remove from the fridge 10 minutes before serving and decorate with mandarin segments. Cut with a very sharp knife. This dessert is very rich and decadent so only thin slices are required.
