Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare the crust, line the bottom of an 8-inch round tart pan with removable bottom with a round of parchment paper.

  • Combine, dates and next 6 ingredients (through vanilla) in the bowl of a food processor; process until all ingredients come together, adding water 1 tablespoon at a time as needed to form a sticky ball.  Transfer the tart pan; using lightly moistened hands, press the mixture evenly along the bottom and up the sides of the pan to form the crust. Refrigerate until ready to fill.

  • To prepare the filling, combine sugar and next 5 ingredients (through avocados) in the bowl of a food processor; process until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Spread filling into prepared crust and chill at least 30 minutes or until set. Garnish with fresh raspberries, strawberries, and hazelnuts.
