Organic Raw Berry Tart

I think its such a shame to cook berries, they are up there with figs and mango's...foods that should just be enjoyed, they dont need excess sugar, they have all the sweetness we could ever ask for... so with this in mind perhaps try these delicious raw berry tarts. They are so easy to make look amazing and are great for you !!!

2 cups organic raw nuts (almonds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, etc) – don’t soak the nuts
1 cup organic dates, pitted
1/4 tsp himalayan sea salt (optional)
Organic blueberries, strawberries and blackberries
Organic orange rind grated
Put the nuts in a blender and mix until the nuts resemble crumbs. Add the dates and salt and blend again. Use your hands to press into a larger pie plate or use smaller ones to make individual ones. Make sure it is all flattened. Put in the freezer for around 15 minutes. Top with berries and rind and serve. MMMMM
