Summer Berry Tart
Makes one 8-9 inch tart
To make the tart crust:
– 2 cups almond flour + 2 tablespoons
– 1/2 tsp pink salt
– 1 tablespoon maple syrup
– 2 tablespoons coconut oil
– 1 egg
1. Preheat oven 350
2. Place flour and salt in food processor. Pulse briefly.
3. Add coconut oil, maple syrup and egg and pulse until mixture forms a ball.
4. Press into lightly greased (you can use coconut oil) 8-9 inch tart pan.
5. Bake crust about 10 minutes. Remove from oven. While crust cools prepare coconut whipped cream.
To make the coconut whipped cream:
– 2 cans coconut cream, refrigerated overnight (I use Natural Value)
– 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
– 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
6. After the coconut cream has set in the fridge overnight, the coconut fat solids separate from the coconut water. Open cans of coconut cream and spoon solid cream into Kitchen Aid mixer bowl. Beat the solid coconut cream on high speed until cream is peaks form. Slowly stir in the maple syrup and vanilla extract.
Refrigerate until use.
7. Finally, to decorate tart, fill cooled tart crust with coconut cream. Decorate with 2 pints of organic strawberries or berry of choice. Enjoy!

  1. silly question, but why the pink salt? it’s generally used for garnish, but the lovely pink color wouldn’t be noticed in any kind of baking application. the taste isn’t discernibly different (to most palates) from regular sea salt, or kosher salt.

  2. Hi Lauren,
    At Sweet Laurel, they use pink salt for its mineral qualities and PH balancing properties. For the purposes of this recipe, any type of salt will do.
