In bowl, blender, or food processor, mash/blend avocado until smooth.  Add next 4 ingredients, blending until mixture is thoroughly combined.  Place in pastry bag fitted with large star-shaped pastry tip.  Chill for about an hour in the fridge.  To make tart crust, mix cashews in a food processor until you have a fine cashew flour.  Add coconut and mix until completely blended with the cashew flour.  Add honey and lemon juice or water and mix thoroughly.  Flatten the dough to fit in tart pan or divide evenly to fit in individual tartlette pans.  Pipe mousse decoratively onto crusts and garnish with fresh fruit pieces or chopped nuts.  Serve right away.
