Vegan Lemon Tarts

Healthy Luxe with Califia Farms

Lemon tarts

These tarts are so light and full of flavor, made using Califia Farms Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk. The almond milk creates a creamy texture (minus the cream), and the vanilla adds natural sweetness.

Base

1 1/2 cups spelt or allpurpose gluten free flour

1/2 cup desiccated coconut 

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

1/4 cup melted coconut butter

2 tbsp coconut oil 

1 tsp vanilla essence

1/4 cup cold water 

 

Filling

1 cup Califia Farms Vanilla Almond milk 

1/4 tsp agar-agar

2 tbsp maple syrup
