No-Bake chocolate tart

This No-Bake Chocolate tart that traditionally serves one is the perfect dessert for a special occasion; like an anniversary or a birthday, or even just to enjoy by yourself after a long day, it doesn’t take much time, and it’s vegan too! Who said you couldn’t have your cake (tart) and eat it too?


Although this dessert requires 3-4 hours to set, it can be prepared in just under 20 minutes and does not require an oven making it that much easier to whip up.


With just these four main ingredients you are ready to get started; vegan butter, 7 Oreos, vegan chocolate chips, and of course our BamNut Milk, for this recipe using the BamNut Barista version. For decoration on top, we decided to use raspberries, although you can use any fruit you like, whipped cream, or even just leave it plain.


Ingredients for the tart shell:

  • 30g vegan butter, melted
  • 7 Oreos, crushed

Ingredients for the filling:

  • 100g vegan chocolate chips
  • 75ml BamNut Milk, Barista

Here’s how you put it together so you can enjoy it;

First, to create the tart shell, pulse your Oreos and melted butter in a food processor until their combined in a crumbly mixture. Then put the mixture into a tart shell/form to create the base shape, for it to become firm place it in the freezer for 30-40 minutes allowing it to set.

Moving onto the filling; in a saucepan, bring the BamNut Barista Milk to a boil, when boiling mix in the chocolate chips until they have melted. Once the tart shell has fully set in the freezer take it out and pour the melted mixture into the shell. Lastly, let everything set in the fridge for 3-4 hours, or even overnight if you have the time, then enjoy!~
