Eating clean to live lean doesn’t mean abstaining from delectable treats.

When it comes to living a healthy and balanced lifestyle, you can have your cake (or tart in this case) and eat it, if you’re sensible about what ingredients you use and keep those portions under control.

Makes 1 tart




  • 2½ cups almond milk
  • 2-3 tbsp maple syrup/honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp tapioca flour
  • Cinnamon, for dusting


  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C and line a pie pan with baking paper.
  • To make the crust, mix all the ingredients together. Once combined, press into the pan.
  • Poke the crust with a fork and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove and cool.
  • Meanwhile, to prepare the filling, heat the almond milk in a saucepan.
  • Stir through the maple syrup and vanilla extract.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the tapioca flour and 1 cup of almond milk until smooth and no lumps are visible.
  • Add the tapioca flour mixture to the heated milk and stir continuously on a low heat until thick and smooth.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  • Pour onto the crust, dust with cinnamon and refrigerate overnight.
