Instructions

Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/360°F. Grease an 8-inch tart tin. Set aside.

In a food processor, combine crust ingredients and pulse until combined. You should get a moist mixture that can be easily moulded.

Filling

  1. Place oat milk, coconut cream in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Turn off the heat then add 3 of the teabags and leave to brew, covered, for 15 minutes. Remove the tea bags and squeeze out all the liquid. Allow milk tea to cool to room temperature.
  2. Bring milk tea, lemon, orange and grapefruit juice to the boil then whisk in agar agar, vanilla, and cornstarch. Whisk until agar is dissolved. Then add maple syrup, whisking constantly. Allow to boil for approximately 30 seconds.
  3. Remove from heat and strain it through a fine-mesh sieve into a heatproof bowl. Allow mixture to cool for 5 mins.
  4. 
Pour the mixture into the tart. Place in the fridge to set for 2 hours.

Jello

  1. In a saucepan, add grapefruit juice, maple syrup. Bring to a boil, whisk in the agar, and super juice powder. Let it simmer for 3 minutes until agar is completely dissolved. 
  2. Allow mixture to cool to room temperature before gently pouring over the top of the set citrus chamomile tea filling. 
  3. Place tart in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight to set.
