Strawberry Tart (Gluten/Grain Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Egg Free)

We went strawberry picking a few weeks ago and I knew I wanted something creamy to go with them but I didn't have a lot of time... instead of coming up with a totally new recipe I just based it off of the recipe for my Pear and Fig Coconut Cream Tart that I made last fall.  It's a bit different because I didn't bake it all together, but that's definitely an option if you want something a little different!  This tart is light and creamy and not too sweet- it lets you taste and enjoy the sweetness of the strawberries as well.

So to keep things simple, here is the recipe!

Strawberry Tart
Gluten/Grain/Dairy/Soy/Egg/Corn Free

2 cups almond meal
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 Tbsp chia meal in 2 Tbsp hot water
1/8 tsp celtic sea salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 can full fat coconut milk
1/4 cup arrowroot flour

Strawberries for decoration

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare your crust:
Mix your chia and water and set aside to gel. Mix all of the ingredients together with a fork or whisk and press into a 9.5" tart pan(mine has a removable center). Place crust in the oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

Over medium heat, warm your coconut milk, honey, and vanilla.  Once it is about to boil, whisk in your arrowroot.  Remove from heat and pour into tart shell.

Place in the refrigerator to firm up and cool off.  Gently place your fruit onto the coconut cream, remove from pan, slice and serve.

  1. Hi, Nooshin! Is it blasphemous to ask how you think this would work plain old garden variety sugar instead of honey? How much would you sub in? Amy B

    1. Hi Amy- Only slightly blasphemous :) I would say it depends on how sweet you want it! 1/4 cup should do, but you can taste the cream and see if you want more. You can also use maple syrup, agave, or coconut sugar if you're into those!

  2. how beautiful! it sounds absolutely delicious! thanks for sharing!

  3. Noosh, I am loving the idea for the filling. I don't have to worry about the gluten though so I may try a graham cracker crust... only because I don't have the almond and chia meal. Can't wait to try this!

  4. Hi Noosh,

    What a beautiful tart!!! Love the color and your crust is amazing. :-)


  5. this tart looks delicious! I am thinking of trying it with savory fillings, as a way of using up some of my darn squash. I am just learning about chia, too, so thanks for coming up with a way of using it.

  6. Art and delicious recipes blended together in this recipes. This will make a sweet and yummy dessert.

  7. Ahhh why must you tease me so!

  8. 3 Studies SHOW How Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you literally kill fat by eating Coconut Fats (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from large medical journals are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world around!
