Hey guys! I’m back again with another amazing recipe. This time it is vegan!! How exciting right?!

I finally finished the freelance work that I had to turn in this week and it feels so nice to be able to come back and write for my own blog and connect with my own readers!

One thing that swayed my decision on making this awesome vegan tart apart from the fact that I have been seeing so many different types of vegan tarts on Pinterest is the fact that I had a pantry full of nuts!

A couple of weeks ago the grocery store I shop at had amazing sales on almonds, cashews, walnuts… so I had to get some of course.

I saved my nuts for the sole purpose of making a vegan treat and after seeing the recipe that Numidyum posted on her own blog I had to try it. Plus check out her photo, how can you say no to that!

Numidyum’s vegan strawberry tart

Her recipe was simple and looked extremely tasty and refreshing, the only issue I had was the fact that I did not have a similar mold, mine was a lot smaller so there were definite changes that needed to be made!

I decided to split her recipe in half and add some lemon zest to make this tart a lemon strawberry vegan tart… yay!! I love lemon tarts combine that with my love of strawberries you get this!

If you didn’t notice yet, I am obsessed with strawberries… So I stuck with the strawberry layer option but I am sure that this would taste amazing with any other berry just make sure that you are using enough!

By the way, I am curious to know if you guys like the decoration of this vegan strawberry lemon tart? Personally, I am in love with the fondant flowers because they add so much to the visual of the whole tart!

If you guys ever want a tutorial on how to work with fondant make sure to let me know 🙂

How to make this Vegan Lemon Tart

Start by blending your nuts, oats, coconut oil, and the sweetener in the food processor. You will know when it is ready when the crust holds itself together when pinched!

In your lined long pan press the crust evenly using a flat measuring cup and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

During this time move on to the first filling layer. Start by heating up the milk, the sweetener, the lemon zest, as well as the corn starch over medium-low heat. Stir continuously to avoid lumps, if any lumps do happen though don’t be scared… Just strain the cream and that should leave you with a silky smooth finish!

Pour this coconut custard over the crust that’s been chilling, return everything to the fridge and move on to the last layer.

For the strawberry gelee (jelly), blend your strawberries, add in the corn starch and the sweetener and cook over medium-low heat while again continuously stirring. When the mixture thickens pour it over the coconut custard and chill one last time.
