View Full Version : Jennifer Cornbleet's Tropical Fruit Tart Recipe?
03-18-2008, 05:15 PM
Last week-end I went to a dinner party hosted by a raw foods chef. She made a Southwestern meal and everyting was great! For dessert she made a fantastic pie made with mangos as the base, topped with kiwi and berries. The crust was made with almonds.
While looking at Jennifer Cornbleet's website, I saw a picture of her Tropical Fruit Tart. It looks just like the pie I had! I would love the recipe if anyone has it!!
I would ask the raw chef, but it was from one of the classes she teaches. One 3-hour class is $125.00!! She owns every raw cookbook ever made, so I bet the recipe was Jennifers.
Thanks in advance!

Do yourself and the author a favor ~ purchase the book. She's got a LOT of very easy to make, very tasty recipes. It's one of my favorites.

For the first time recently, I forked over $55 for a three hour class by Chaya Diehl for a class. To my surprize it was well worth the money. She's a former employer of Elaina Love and that's where she gets her recipes from that she tweaks to her perfection. Now I really, really want to get my hand's on Elaina Love's expensive cookbooks. But, oh yeah, just mentioning it cause of the price comparison.

I might buy her book in the future, but I've recently purchased several raw cookbooks and I just can't buy anymore right now.
I was just hoping someone could share that one recipe with me.
I know this isnt the one you want but here is a tarte from gone raw.
You could use different berries or a mixture of berries, or use mangoes etc. Whatever is your favorite. Lots of different fruits would probably be good with this recipe. I havent made this but it sounds simple and yummy. The crust is pretty basic and you could add in coconut flakes or cinnamon if you wanted for a different flavor. You could probably sub different nuts in place of the walnuts if you wanted. Raw food is so much fun and the possibilities are endless.
Wow, check out this tarte. It looks divine.
Scroll down for pictures and recipe.
I dont know why it says to warm dates in microwave because that would make this not raw. Of course we know better. Other than that this recipe sounds yummy.
When Im done with my juice feast Im gonna try this.

I tried emailing you but it wouldn't let me. I have that cook book, and yes, well worth it and I have made that tart myself minus the fresh fruit toppings and LOVED it!

Thanks for the links. I had to laugh, though, when I saw that the dates should be warmed in a microwave!
I wonder why you couldn't e-mail me! Maybe I can e-mail you. What do I click on?
In your public profile it says that you do not wish to be contacted. Maybe you could go into your profile and change it. I have Jennifers book to and it is worth the $ as it has many simple recipes.

I have her book so here is the recipe:
Coconut crust-1 1/2 cups of unsweetened shredded dried coconut
1 1/2 cups raw macadamia nuts or raw nuts unsoaked-1/2 teaspoon salt-1/2 cup of pitted medjool dates, unsoaked-process everything except dates in food processor s blade-then add dates until mixture resembles coarse crumbs and begins to stick together. Do not over process.
actual recipe: 3 cups of coconut crust-2 cups of mango pudding or pineapple pudding( 1 1/2 cups of chopped fresh mangos (2) 1/2 cup of dried mangos cut into peices soaked for ten minutes and drained-process in blender)
1) mold crust into pie pan and put in freezer for 15 mintues 2) spread mango pudding over the bottom. 3) place berries in bowl and mix gently. 4) arrange berries over the top of the tart so that the entire tart is covered. chill for at least 2 hours before serving.5) serve chilled or at room temp. it will keep for three days.
So there you go- have fun- I think I will try this myself it sounds really good.

Go to amazon - she also has a DVD set - she is WONDERFUL! Her recipes are simple and enough for one to two people (which is great if you, like me, are the only raw person in the house). It is well worth the money to get another uncook book. I have about 20 and I use hers quite a bit.
