Shortbread tart base

  • 2 cups macadamias
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats

Lemon coconut cream filling

  • 4 cups shredded coconut
  • 4 tsp lemon zest
  • 5 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


Shortbread tart base

  • To make the base, process the macadamias until they resemble a fine “meal” – don’t process for too long, or you will end up with macadamia butter! Add all other base ingredients and pulse to combine. Firmly press into a 23cm round fluted tart tin with removable base, and place in the freezer while you make the cream filling.

Lemon coconut cream filling

  • To make the cream filling, process the shredded coconut in a food processor for 15-20 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl frequently, until it becomes smooth like butter and reduces in bulk. Add the remaining filling ingredients and process together until smooth and creamy.
  • Spoon the cream filling onto the base and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
