Leftover Makeover Mother's Day Edition: Key Lime Tart For Two

On Wednesday, I shared a delicious Key Lime Coconut Cashew Butter recipe with you. Tart and sweet, it's makes a great fruit dip or breakfast topping.

But what about a creamy layer to a super quick and easy tart-for-two? Put this recipe in an adorable mini dish and it makes the perfect personal Mother's Day treat for the special lady in your life.

Key Lime Tart For Two

Top Layer:
1/4 cup Key Lime Coconut Cashew Butter (recipe found here)

1/3 cup pecans
2 tablespoons shelled pistachios
2 dates
1 teaspoon coconut oil, melted and slightly cooled
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

To make the crust, blend all ingredients in a food processor until it forms a sticky consistency.

In a 3x5 ramekin (I found mine here), smooth crust into an even layer. Let chill in freezer for at least 30 minutes.

Take prepared crust out of freezer and add 1/4 cup pre-made cashew butter on top, smoothing evenly. 

Top with chopped pecans, pistachios and/or lime zest. This recipe tastes best chilled, so keep it in the fridge until ready to serve. 

Wishing all the mothers out there a lovely day filled with awesome people, delicious food and your favorite me-time activities! Happy Mother's Day!
