Recipe for gluten free, sugar free, dairy free fruit tart. Surprisingly tasty! You won't miss the stuff that isn't in there. #glutenfree #dairyfree #sugarfree #veganI recently had an allergic reaction to a skin cream, and after a month and a half of dealing with it, I decided I needed to make some changes in my life.

Using Frankincense mixed with Jojoba oil had been helping, but I knew the persistent rash wasn’t going to go away fully unless I made some lifestyle changes. And that meant changing my diet.

I went cold turkey on both refined sugar and gluten. I was surprised to find that, even though I am more of a savory kind of snacker, I still missed the sugar. You can always find me in the shop with an apple or some other sweet not far behind. (Check us out online by clicking here).There is sugar in pretty much everything. My oldest daughter is gluten free, but I still couldn’t indulge in most of her snacks, because they were all made with sugar.

And then, on day 6 of my sugar free streak, we got invited to a bake off. There’s nothing like standing in a room full of sugar and gluten when you can’t have it!

Thankfully, my mom has a recipe for a delicious fruit tart. You’d never know that it was missing a thing. In fact, it’s sugar free, gluten free, and dairy free. And tasty. Wins all around, right? If any of you have struggled to find a good recipe for a food allergy or sensitivity, look no farther.

And bonus – this filling also works as a fruit dip. So if you want to skip the crust altogether, just dip that fruit right in and dessert is done.

2 Tablespoon coconut flour

Instructions:

Put 2 cans of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. Spoon the cream from the top to whip in a chilled metal bowl. Set aside the runny part of the can to go into the filling.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk almond flour, coconut flour, gelatin, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir in melted coconut oil, honey, and almond until a dough forms. Spoon dough onto a round baking pan, lined with parchment paper. Roll into a large circle. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden. Cool completely.

Place soaked cashews, coconut milk, raw honey, melted coconut oil, and almond extract into a blender or food processor. Blend 3-5 minutes until completely smooth.

  1. Refined sugar free, not sugar free. Honey is still sugar, though lower on the glycemic index. Not just a technicality, saying this is sugar-free is dangerous for diabetics. Looks delicious though. I do appreciate a natural sweetener myself!

  2. I agree with the above comment. Refined sugar free, yes, but it’s not sugar free. As a diabetic myself, I’m particularly aware of those details. 🙂
    Looks yummy, though!
    Have you tried stevia? If you get a good brand, it’s an amazing sweetener, and with no glycemic load.

  3. Loved it! It was delicious & my whole family & my kids loved it! Will definitely make again! I did add a little sugar to the filling & had lots of filling left…could have made a second crust. I made it in the shape of an egg for Easter. I also wanted to make it right away & stuck the coconut milk in freezer for a bit & didn’t soak the cashews overnight & it all still turned out great! Thx for the recipe!
