Orange & 70% Chocolate no-bake tart – Vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free

by Lucia

Another super simple, sugar-free, dairy-free, gluten-free & vegan – Orange & Chocolate no-bake tart.

 The preparation is quick and easy, but chocolate cream requires some time to settle. You can keep this tart also a couple of days in a fridge. 

You do not need any gelatine for the orange layer, I just peeled the oranges and blended them together with the dry dates, until I got completely creamy consistency. It will get stable in the fridge and will hold the shape enough, while being super soft and creamy.

Serves: 8 Prep Time:
Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • 120 g hazelnuts
  • 6 dry dates, pitted - for the base layer
  • 30 g (about 2 tbsps) solid coconut oil + 15 g of coconut oil for the chocolate cream
  • 190 g (70% dark chocolate) - can be 50% too
  • 350 g soy/rice milk
  • 2 medium size oranges
  • 7 dry dates (aprox. 60 g) - for the orange layer


  1. Place hazelnuts, dry dates and solid coconut oil into a food processor and blend until finely ground and sticky.
  2. Place the dough into a baking pan and press it to the bottom, use the baking pan which has a removable bottom. 
  3. Chop the chocolate. 
  4. Pour the milk into a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Keep low-medium temperature and keep stirring to avoid milk to burn. Switch off the heat and add the chocolate and the coconut oil. Keep constantly stirring until chocolate melts. The chocolate cream starts to thicken after a few minutes. Pour the chocolate over the base. 
  5. Let it cool down completely and after place it into the fridge for at least another hour. (more is better). The best is to leave it overnight, if possible. 
  6. Then, when the chocolate is solid, you can prepare the orange layer. (eventually, you can anticipate and prepare the orange layer before, and keep it in a jar in the fridge, until the chocolate base gets solid. )
  7. Place 7 dates into a small bowl and cover it with hot water. Let is soak for 15 minutes. Then, throw away the water. 
  8. In the meantime, peel oranges and take out the seeds, and place them into a food processor:
  9. Add soaked dates and blend until completely creamy. From the beginning, it will be watery from the juice of oranges, but continue blending and after a few minutes, all starts thicken. 
  10. Pour this orange cream over the solid chocolate base (otherwise if chocolate is not solid, the cream will sink into) and leave in fridge to settle for at least 1 hour (longer, better). 


I recommend to prepare this cake the night before. You can also anticipate the orange layer at the same time, and keep it in a jar and in the fridge. Chocolate base will perfectly settle during the night and so the orange cream. Then, the next morning, just place the orange layer on the chocolate base and let it settle for some minutes before serving. 

The tart can last a few days in the fridge. 


This cake is vegan, sugar-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free.
