This recipe is just for the filling as I did not include any tea in the crust. So, you will need a baked 9” pie crust. Feel free to make your own dough or buy it from the supermarket. I made my own crust using paleo ingredients that included almond and tapioca flours. I made enough to cover a 9.5” tart pan with a removable bottom.
|Crust is ready for dressing!|
- 300 g milk chocolate
- 200 g bittersweet chocolate
- 115 ml 35% whipping cream
- 115 ml almond milk
- 2 tbps Masala Chai
- Pour whipping cream, almond milk, and chai, into a saucepan and heat at medium to high.
- Bring to a full boil, then set aside for about 30 minutes to an hour to continue infusing.
- Pour tea mixture through a sieve a couple of times to remove all large particles.
- Heat tea mixture again, bringing it back to a boil.
- Have both chocolates ready and chopped, sitting in a heatproof bowl.
- Once the tea mixture comes to a boil, pour over the chocolates in the bowl.
- Allow the chocolates to sit for a few minutes to melt, then whisk the mixture until smooth.
- Pour the chocolate mixture into the pie shell and place in the fridge for 2-3 hours until it becomes firm.
- To serve, bring tart to room temperature, slice, and enjoy!
|Is this good enough?|
|Maybe some white chocolate works?|
|Try a slice!|
- As already stated, feel free to buy a pie crust from the market if you do want to make you own. Tenderflake is pretty good.
- To speed up the chocolate melting, you can heat it lightly over a double-boiler, and then pour the tea mixture over it to whisk until smooth.
- Make your own Masala Chai. In the future, I’m going to try my own tea mixture rather than a ready made tea brand. This way, I control the amounts of each spice used.
- Decorate your tart with berries, sprinkles, nuts etc… I drizzled some melted white chocolate on my tart after allowing it to sit in the fridge for about 15 minutes.
- Serve each slice with a dollop of whipped-cream and a dash of cinnamon for an extra hit of spice.
- I used a combination of whipping cream and almond milk, but feel free to use just one type or a combination of other milks. Coconut would be great.
