Meyer Lemon Vegan Raw Tart

Published on November 3, 2015 by   ·   142 Comments Pin It

Meyer lemon is a citrus fruit hailing from China that’s a cross between lemon and mandarin. Meyer lemon trees are perfect indoor plants that fruit beautifully. These trees get around 6-10 feet tall but will adapt to pot size – urbanites: take note if you’re looking for a good houseplant. If you’re a lemon lover like me, this is one you’ll want in home.

Meyer lemons are a great source of Vitamin C and antioxidants that boost your immune system and help protect against heart disease, cancer and help increase alkalinity in the body. I grew up loving lemon bars, lemon tarts, I love anything with lemon! Thank goodness I grew up in Cali where we had an abundance of lemons everywhere!

I came across some Meyer lemons this weekend and was reminded of my hometown. I made this vegan meyer lemon tart in about 20 minutes of prep time.

Meyer Lemon Raw Vegan Tart

– 5 dates

– 1/3 cup melted raw coconut oil
– 1/4 cup maple syrup – Juice from 5 ripe Meyer Lemons (strained to remove seeds)

In a food processor blend pecans and dates until fine and sticky. Press into bottom of springform pan cover and place in fridge.


Place everything except lemon zest into high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into pan with crust. Refrigerate for up to 3 hours to allow lemon filling to set. Then sprinkle with lemon zest.

Serve with raspberries.
