No Bake Fruit Pizza
Fruit Pizza is the perfect festive dessert to bring to a summer cookout or party!
- 1 cup almonds
- 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1 cup medjool dates
- Dash of Himalayan pink salt
- Splash of vanilla extract
- Splash of water if needed to help blend
- 1 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut or scant 1/2 cup coconut butter, warmed
- 1 can coconut milk, refrigerated overnight, solid cream only
- 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
- 3 Tbs lemon juice, from 1 lemon
- Zest of 2 lemons
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1-2 cups fruit, for topping
- To make the crust:
- Pulse all ingredients together in a food processor until sticky crumbles form. Press firmly into the bottom and sides of a parchment-lined 9-inch cake pan or tart pan. (I place parchment on top and press with a flat measuring cup)
- To make the frosting:
- Add shredded coconut to a food processor to make coconut butter by blending it for about 10-15 minutes until liquified (stop to scrape down the sides a couple times, as needed.)
- Add the remaining ingredients and blend thoroughly. (Frosting will be thin, but thickens when chilled)
- Pour over crust (see notes) and set in the fridge uncovered for 20 minutes to lightly set the filling.
- Garnish with fruit of choice and return to the fridge for a couple of hours to firm up. When set, grab the parchment to lift pizza out of the pan. Use a pizza cutter to slice. Enjoy!
Depending on the size of your pan, and how thick you like your frosting, you may not use it all. If you like a thin layer of frosting, use half and save the rest for another pizza (or for another use.) Leftover frosting will firm up in the fridge, so gently warm it up (a few seconds in the microwave works) and it will return to a spreadable state. Store pizza tightly covered in the fridge. Should last 4-5 days, depending on the fruit you use. I recommend berries-- any kind! Kiwi, sliced grapes, diced mango, and pineapple are great, too! Avoid fruits that brown quickly, like pears, bananas and apples.
