Vegan Chocolate Cream Tart

[wpseo_breadcrumb]

All of us love chocolate, right? ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿซ

However, before we even start cooking our delicious Vegan Chocolate Cream Tart, letโ€™s know more about chocolate benefits, how to choose it and cook it properly.

Chocolate: Pro and Cons

All types of chocolate are made from cocoa beans. The good quality chocolate should contain several main ingredients (without them you canโ€™t say that it is a real chocolate). 

First of all, cocoa butter. ๐Ÿค”

If you want to buy good quality chocolate with rich taste for cooking, it should have a cocoa butter.

The second thing is a cocoa mass – a solid or semi – solid product which is using to make chocolate (with some additional cocoa butter).

There are existing so many different kinds of chocolate with various flavours: nuts, extracts (like vanilla or coconut), liqueurs and fillings (chocolate ganaches, fruit and berry purees, cream and etc.).

The chocolate have a long story. Many centuries ago, Olmec Indians used hot chocolate as sacred drink. And the recipe of that chocolate is too far from our modern version.

In XIX century, chocolate was sell into pharmacy like a refreshing drink for gain energy.

Many scientists recognise that chocolate positively affects on the body by improving the mood and producing the hormones of happiness – serotonin and endorphins. ๐Ÿ˜ŒEating chocolate makes you feel happy.

Nevertheless, we shouldnโ€™t overdo with this sweet dessert. The high consumption of chocolate is raising the amount of glucose in blood and it is not good for our metabolism. ๐Ÿ˜”

That is why it is recommend to eat chocolate dessert only in first half of the day and in small portions. โ˜บ๏ธ

How to store chocolate and how to buy it properly

As we mentioned before, the high quality chocolate must contain two ingredients: cocoa butter and cocoa mass. If itโ€™s have it, that means you found what you are looking for.

Therefore, I advice you to not buy the cheap chocolate because it can have some harmful chemicals. 

To keep chocolate you will need to choose dry but cold dark place. It will helps not to melt the chocolate.

Now it is time to make delicious and simple vegan dessert – Chocolate Cream Tart.

The first step is prepare the dough. I used the food processor to make it faster, but it is okay if you just mix all ingredients together into a bowl and then knead it until it become smooth and elastic.

Make sure that the tart crust is well chilled because if it is not, it will be pretty hard to transfer it to tart pan. ๐Ÿ˜ŠSo, let is sit in fridge at least 1 hour.

Prepared tart shell before baking

The next step is making two fillings: chocolate cream and chocolate ganache.

Follow the instructions in recipe down below and done! Your vegan chocolate tart is ready for decorating! ๐Ÿค—

For decorating tart you can use anything that you want: different berries, nuts and etc, but try to keep it as minimalistic as you can.
