This vegan white chocolate tart is the perfect Spring dessert. Using natural and healthy ingredients, this tart is vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free! Top with strawberries and edible flowers.
It’s finally Spring, which means we’re going to start seeing all the beautiful produce and flowers at the farmers market. When ORIGIN Magazine approached me to create a few recipes for their Top Global Foodie edition, I knew I wanted to make an easy, healthy and beautiful tart.
The inspiration behind this white chocolate tart is, well, you guessed it, Spring. Flowers, fresh fruits, bright colors and sunshine. What I love about it is that it’s really easy to make and it looks so beautiful. And it’s also vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free – but it tastes like the ‘real deal’.
How to make a vegan tart
Making vegan desserts can be tricky and sometimes expensive if you don’t have some of the ingredients already in your pantry. Coconut oil, maple syrup, seeds and nuts are staples in my kitchen, and if you’re looking to make healthier treats these are must-have ingredients.
Vegan White Chocolate can be hard to find, but I was able to track down this really good brand on Amazon. It tastes so good you won’t notice the difference.
For the Crust
Honestly, the crust is my favorite part! Start by gathering the ingredients, grab your food processor and pulse until well combined. Press the mixture onto a 9″ tart pan and bake at 350ºF for 10-15 minutes.
For the White Chocolate filling
Super straight-forward but it does require a lot of patience. You’d need to chill the filling overnight for it to set. So if you’re making this tart for a special occasion I’d highly suggest making it the night before!
How to decorate a tart
A few of my favorite tricks to make show stopping desserts:
- Layers: I like adding layers & dimension to desserts, especially tarts since they can look pretty boring. If you’re using strawberries or fruits, arrange them in different directions, cut some and leave some whole.
- Texture: Add hemp seeds, chia seeds, slivered almonds or chopped nuts to create some texture.
- Edible Flowers: always a good idea! Go for complimentary colors and different sizes. So for example, my main flowers are orange, but if you look closely there’s little chamomile flowers and a few smaller leaves spread out. If all the flowers are the same size it’ll look super crowded.
- Have fun! Search your pantry and fresh herbs and find what you like. I also prep and style on a plate to test how it’s going to look BEFORE placing it on top of the tart. Give yourself room to practice if it’s your first time.
