It may be fairly obvious by now that I absolutely love tarts and pies of all kinds and I couldn’t wait to share this refined sugar-free, no-bake, vegan earl grey blueberry tart with you all! Also, feel free to check out my recipe for Vegan Pistachio & Lemon Tart, Vegan strawberry rose tart, Raw Vegan raspberry cheesecake, or even a Raw Vegan pumpkin pie!

Some people have the tendency to believe that if you’re suggesting a no-bake vegan tart then flavour and texture are being sacrificed and it’s true that textures are different. However, I don’t think this is a negative. I can honestly say the flavour of this earl grey blueberry tart is one of my absolute favourites.

The recipe is completely dairy-free and yet the coconut cream creates a rich creamy flavour so you’re not missing out on that factor. Plus this recipe is refined sugar-free, using natural sweeteners to provide a lovely subtle sweetness to the vegan tart.

Plus, the actual process for making this no-bake tart is incredibly simple. The crust recipe is as simple as chucking a few ingredients in a blender and can be used for raw vegan recipes as well. The filling simply needs a bit of heating and stirring and then it’s cool down time. Voila!

In terms of storing this tart, simply keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for a month.

Vegan Early Grey Blueberry Tart Recipe:

Makes: 1 Earl Grey Blueberry tart (8″/20cm)

Preparation Time: ~30 minutes (does not include cooling-down time).

Ingredients

Raw Base:

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup shredded coconut (or in my case I used the leftover coconut meal after making coconut milk)
  • 5 dates
  • 1 tbsp Coconut oil ( if needed)
  • pinch of salt

Vegan Tart Filling:

  • 1.5 cups full fat coconut cream
  • 1 cup blueberries ( either fresh or frozen but the colour will change depending on which you use)
  • 1 tbsp earl grey tea ( I used a blend with blue cornflours . this isn’t necessary but could affect colour)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 2 tsp agar agar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Decoration:

  • a handful of blueberries
  • a handful of dragon fruit balls
  • shredded coconut
  • edible flowers (optional)
  • or any of your favourite fruit or toppings

Directions

  1. To begin making this earl grey blueberry tart, we start by constructing the base. Blend the almonds in a food processor/blender till a fine crumb. Add the rest of the crust ingredients and mix well until you obtain a uniform sticky mixture. Note* If the crust isn’t sticky enough then add a  tbsp of coconut oil and this will help it to stick together when chilled.
  2. Add the crust dough to a tart tin (8″/20cm) and spread it evenly on the whole surface. Leave to chill in the fridge, while you prepare the filling.  
  3. To prepare the earl grey blueberry filling, first heat up the coconut cream in a medium saucepan, stirring well till smooth and uniform. Add the rest of the filling ingredients. Mash the blueberries in the saucepan so they release their juice, giving colour and flavour to the mix. Bring to a slow boil and cook for a few minutes until the mix thickens, stirring continuously.
  4. When the mixture has become thicker, remove from the heat and pour through a sieve to remove lumps.
  5. Pour the filling over the crust and leave it to cool completely. Place in the fridge for some time, till the filling is completely set. healthy no-bake, refined sugar free, vegan earl grey blueberry tart
  6. As the tart sets and the filling cools down, the colour will deepen (naturally) giving you a gorgeous dark purple!healthy no-bake, refined sugar free, raw vegan earl grey blueberry tart

  1. How much coconut oil should go into the crust?

     
  2. The aesthetic result of this cake is spectacular. Since all the ingredients are healthy and good, I am sure it is also delicious. I’ll try to cook it, even if I’m a bad cook!
    That’s great!

      Hi Elena,
      Thank you so much for your comment. I was a delicious dessert. I do hope you make it at home. 🙂

  4. Omgosh this looks so beautiful I can’t wait to make it! Is coconut cream different from full fat canned coconut?

     
    • Alpha Foodie

      Thank you so much <3
      If the canned one is called 'coconut milk' then yes it is quite different. Coconut cream is a lot thicker and richer, whereas milk is a similar consistency to other 'milks'

       
  5. Hi,
    I made this tart yesterday. Although I like it (maybe could be slightly sweeter), it doesn’t look pretty. The color is a kind of brown/grey//mauve. I would like to make it as a birthday cake for a friend. Any suggestion?

      I’m about to edit my blog post now – I used an earl grey & blue cornflour tea blend so that may have affected the colour ( like how butterfly pea flowers would – so these could also be used as a natural colourant ( just a tsp in with the tea) ).
      The other main thing that can affect the colour is whether or not you use fresh or frozen blueberries.

       
  6. The tart looks and sounds delicious and I plan on making it soon for a weekend gathering. Quick question… In one of your pictures, it shows coconut oil being added to the base, but it is not listed in the ingredients. How much do you use?

      So sorry for the delay in getting back to you! I’ve had some issues with blog comments recently but finally fixed it!

      I’ve fixed that on the post now. The 1tbsp of coconut oil is optional, just in case the crust isn’t sticky enough to form the base with just the dates
      One tip is to soak the dates in boiling water for 10 minutes if they’re not soft. This will soften them up and make them stickier for the base mix 🙂

       
  7. Hi, I saw your video on Instagram for this recipe, and it showed you putting coconut oil in the crust, but I don’t see that mentioned here. Should I put coconut oil in the crust and how much?

  8. I finally managed to get this made tonight, but too late to eat it. Mine is a darker colour, which I suspect is because the tea has made it browner – any thoughts on how to avoid that? Less tea? Also, it was tasting too rich/coconutty, so I squeezed in the juice of a lemon that happened to be on the bench and I think it’s the perfect touch to set off the flavour! Hopefully we can eat it tomorrow night. Unfortunately dragon fruit is out of season here, so I’ll try decorating with star fruit instead. 🙂

      I’m about to edit my blog post now – I used an earl grey blue cornflour tea blend so that may have affected the colour ( like how butterfly pea flowers would). Whether you use fresh or frozen blueberries can also change the colour.
      Thanks for the lemon tip ! 😀
