Raw Frozen Mango Tart

...and it's not even Wednesday! ;)

Liz wanted to experiment with mangoes for dessert tonight, and decided to have a go at making a raw version of a Martha Stewart recipe -- Frozen Mango Cream Cake (May 2007 MSL). Adapted heavily of course, but the basic idea was...

the crust: macadamia nuts, coconut oil, agave

the filling: orange juice, lemon juice, agar agar, mango, agave, pine nuts, cashews

the verdict: really, really good. Smooth, creamy but with substance -- it helped that the mangoes were perfectly ripe.
