No-bake vegan red currant tart

A delicious and healthy tart with a slightly sour hint of currant, which is pleasantly refreshing, is the ideal light summer dessert.

This season, we have a lot of fruits in our garden, among which is red currant. These tiny bright red berries are extremely tasty and very healthy! Their sweet and sour taste is perfect for hot summer days. And since we really have an abundance of currants this year, of course we also used them in a summer dessert – bakeless tart. This tart was a great idea for summer sweetening, because it is really beautiful, but also very tasty and healthy, and it does not require heating oven, which is especially convenient in this heat. Juicy crust, sweet and sour currant filling and silky coconut milk cream create the perfect combination of flavors and textures.

Tart is a real energy and vitamin bomb, because currants contain a lot of vitamins: B-complex (B1, B2, B3 and B6) and vitamins C, A and K. Tart also does not contain oil and flour, and if you replace oats with gluten-free ones, it can also be gluten-free. It is very easy to prepare, made without baking, as the ingredients for the base are simply mixed in a blender, and the currant filling and coconut cream are cooked in a pot.

Preparing all the layers is very easy, and to make it even easier to follow the recipe, we have also prepared a video, which you can find a little lower on the page.

Ingredients and preparation


Crust is raw, which means that the ingredients for it do not need to be baked, but just mixed together in a blender. It is made with only 3 ingredients:

  • dates,
  • ground almonds and
  • oat flour for a gluten-free version, use gluten-free oats.

Soak the dates in water to soften them and make them easier to mix into a smooth cream. We usually soak them in lukewarm water in the evening and let them soak overnight. You can also soak them in boiling water for at least half an hour if you are short on time.

Red currant filling

The delicious sweet and sour filling with a beautiful red color is made with only 4 ingredients:

  • red currant,
  • agar agar– this is a great vegan alternative to gelatin that creates a jelly-like texture. It is made from algae and is odorless and tasteless, but it still plays an important role in thickening the cream and giving it a jelly-like texture,
  • starch – corn or tapioca and
  • coconut sugar– you can also use brown, white sugar or erythritol.

Put all the ingredients in a pot, mix well and bring to a boil. When it boils, add the starch, mix and cook for about three minutes, then pour filling over the dough layer and leave it to cool down and harden.

Coconut cream

You only need 5 ingredients for a silky smooth coconut cream:

  • coconut milk– from a can,
  • agave syrup– it can also be replaced with maple or rice syrup,
  • vanilla extract,
  • agar agar and
  • starch (tapioqa or corn starch).

Put all the ingredients in a pot, mix well and bring to a boil. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, then pour over the cooled layer of currants. Place in the refrigerator for a few hours to harden, then decorate the pie as desired.
