Pretzel Crust

  • 140 g salted pretzels
  • 140 g unsalted non-dairy butter melted
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup

Margarita Filling

  • 150 g raw cashews soaked*
  • 150 ml full fat coconut milk shaken well
  • 60 ml melted coconut oil
  • 90 ml agave syrup
  • 120 ml fresh lime juice
  • 2 ½ tbsp tequila
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime zest


Pretzel Crust

  1. In a food processor, blitz the pretzels until they reach a crumb with a few larger pieces scattered throughout for texture. Add the pretzel crumb to a large bowl.
  2. Add the melted butter and agave syrup to crushed pretzels and stir to combine. The mixture should resemble wet sand.
  3. Tip the mixture into a 20cm (8 inch) fluted tart tin and press the crust firmly up the sides of the tin and into the base.
  4. Freeze the crust while you prepare the filling.

Margarita Filling

  1. Add all of the filling ingredients to a high powered blender and blend on high until creamy and perfectly smooth.
  2. Using a spoon, beat some of the air out of the filling, then pour it into the frozen crust. Tap the tart against the counter a few times to release most of the air bubbles.
  3. Freeze the tart for at least 4 hours, or until set. Remove from the freezer to thaw for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.

  • To prepare the cashews for the filling, soak them in a bowl of boiling water for 1 hour to soften, then drain.
  • This tart will keep covered in the freezer for up to 3 days. Remove from the freezer to thaw for 10-15 minutes before serving.
  • To decorate the tart, I used a raw cane sugar and lime zest sprinkle, thinly sliced lime rounds, and mint leaves.
  • For a gluten-free tart, be sure to use a pretzel brand labelled gluten-free.
