Berry Sweet Mulberry Strawberry Tart




*Please note this is not one of my easy recipes, but it is the best pie I ever made!


Macadamia Mulberry Crust

1 cup macadamias
1 cup dried coconut ( I used the Mexican white or tan coconut meat that was shredded and dehydrated at a low temp)
1/2 cup dried white mulberries
1 cup pitted dates

With the S blade in my food processor I processed the dates and mulberries separately until they were well blended. Then I processed the coconut and mac nuts until the mac nuts were processed into medium small bits. Then I processed both mixtures and stopped the food processor just before the mixture balled up. Then I pressed it into a tart pan that was lined with saran wrap or you could oil it with coconut oil so it doesn't stick. I refrigerated the crust overnight or you can do it for a few hours so that it sets.



1st Layer


Strawberry Pudding


2 cups strawberries tops removed
2 cups freeze dried strawberries (can used dried if don't have freeze dried)
3/4 cups pitted dates
1 tablespoon pysllium powder
Stevia leaves or liquid or other raw sweetener to taste
Seeds from 1 vanilla bean

I blended the pysllium and the freeze dried strawberries separately into a powder in a blender. Then I blended the fresh strawberries, dates, stevia, and vanilla in the blender. Then I added the freeze dried strawberry pysllium mixture to the strawberry date mixture and blended it some more. Then I put the smooth strawberry pudding mixture into the refrigerator to set for at least an hour.


2nd layer

Vanilla Cream

1 cup young coconut meat
1 cup raw macadamia nuts soaked overnight in water. Rinse before using.
1 cup pitted dates soaked in 1 cup coconut water
1/4 cup coconut water (or enough to thin while blending)
1 vanilla bean, seeds scooped out
Stevia leaf or liquid or other raw sweetener to taste

I soaked 1 cup pitted dates in coconut water overnight or you could do it for a few hours until the dates are soft Then I blended all the above ingredients together (including the coconut water that the dates were soaked in) in a blender and let the mixture set in the refrigerator for at least an hour.


3rd Layer

Mulberry Cream

1 cup Mulberries (Can use blackberries if mulberries are not available)
1 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup young coconut meat
1/2 cup macadamia nuts
1 vanilla bean, seeds scooped out
Stevia leaf or liquid or other raw sweetener to taste

I blended all the ingredients in the blender until smooth and let the mixture set in the refrigerator for at least an hour.


Assembly of Pie


4 pints of strawberries thinly sliced
Edible Flowers
Mint Leaves


As you can see from the pictures on the left I added the 1st layer of filling and then I added a layer of the thinly sliced strawberries. Then I added the 2nd layer and then a layer of the thinly sliced strawberries. Finally I spread on the 3rd layer of filling and garnished the pie with a design of mint leaves, strawberries, and flowers. It's best for the pie to be in the freezer for at least three hours before serving, if not it gets kinda goopy, if I could do it again I would add a thickener that Cherie Soria told me about called Irish Moss.
