Strawberry Coconut Cream Tart Recipe
I hope you all had an important weekend! It felt like summer time round right here and it was wonderful. We went for an extended breezy stroll to the farmers market, sat out on patios and drank wine, then sat out on (extra) patios and ate dinner. It felt completely unimaginable to bask within the solar and really feel the nice and cozy contemporary air, particularly as a result of it was snowing right here just some weeks in the past.
To rejoice all of those summery emotions, I made this strawberry tart from the Candy Laurel cookbook by Laurel Gallucci & Claire Thomas – you may know Claire from her weblog & YouTube channel The Kitchy Kitchen. This tart is so gentle and scrumptious, I do know it’ll be on repeat all summer time lengthy.
What I like about this recipe is that, assuming you get 2 good cans of coconut milk (which I did – see notes beneath), that is SO darn easy to make. It’s paleo, grain-free, and dairy-free, however there aren’t any sophisticated components, simply easy, healthful ones.
The crust is a mixture of almond flour, salt, coconut oil, maple syrup, and an egg. It comes collectively fantastically and is to press out into the tart pan.
One factor that I like on this e-book is that their coconut cream recipe comes with many taste variations, one among which is lemon and lavender. I skipped the lavender, however I added lemon zest (and a little bit of lemon juice) to my coconut cream as a result of I like lemons and strawberries collectively!
I do know so lots of you’ll completely love this e-book – there are SO many wonderful allergen-free recipes (many are vegan as nicely). There are truffles, cookies, bars, pies, muffins, fast breads, pop tarts… every recipe is extra decadent than the subsequent, but all of them have brief components and easy directions. A terrific reward for Mom’s Day!

I’ve discovered that coconut milk cans will not be all the time constant – generally you get a dud can the place the cream will not separate from the water. I often purchase an additional can simply in case. For this recipe, I used Entire Meals’ full-fat coconut milk, with success.
Word: My strawberries had been extra tart than candy, so I sprinkled them with a little bit cane sugar and a pinch of salt to deliver out extra of their sweetness.
