This Berry Tart with Grain Free Vanilla Almond Crust is a perfect summer dessert!

Last time I made a grain free tart it was delish, but didn’t hold together like a regular flour crust.  THEN!  I finally started using almond flour instead of almond meal and it was a game changer! This crust tastes just like shortbread and I would never believe it wasn’t… if I hadn’t made it myself.  So when I was imagining this tart coming together I knew it needed a creamy filling, and seeing as I try to stay away from dairy these days – coconut saved me once again!  I found some Coconut Milk Yogurt at the store and it was perfect in this!! I got the vanilla flavor and added some lemon zest and vanilla bean to it becaaaaaause…. FLAVOR!!

Okay now a life update:  I have a new netflix show obsession.  Hart of  Dixie.  YUP!  Not ashamed at all – it’s pretty amazing.  When the hubby works his 48 hour shifts, I need girly shows of my own to watch while editing photos and writing these posts.  Right now – Lemon’s sister just got drunk and now she is flippin out! Hahaha – so good.  Anyone else watch it?  I know i’m only like 5 years late but now I can binge it all so i’m pretty happy about it.

Okay back to the berries.  Blueberries and strawberries for 4th of July or any BBQ this summer!  AMERICA! ๐Ÿ™‚
