In Season Recipe:

High Protein Summer Fruit Tart

* Means found at farmers market

Ingredients:
TART
– 2 1/2 cups almond flour (in most health food isles, gluten free sections of your grocery)
– 1/2 tsp. sea salt
– 1 large egg*
– 1 tsp. orange zest

– 1/4 cup coconut oil
– 1/4 cup raw honey *
– 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

COCONUT WHIPPED CREAM
– 1 can full fat coconut milk, refrigerated for 6 or more hours (to allow the cream to separate from the milk)
– 1 Tbsp  vanilla extract
– 2 Tbsp. raw honey*

FRUIT TOPPING
– Seasonal fresh fruit, sliced (we recommend strawberries, blueberries and raspberries for a patriotic twist)*

Equipment:
– 2 medium sized mixing bowls
– Whisk or fork
– Hand mixer
– Baking tray
– Parchment paper or baking mat
– Wire cooling rack
– Cutting board
– Kitchen knife

Directions:
TO MAKE THE TARTS:
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Combine the almond flour and sea salt together in a medium sized mixing bowl and set aside.
2. Add the egg to a medium sized mixing bowl and beat with a hand mixer on low for about 20 seconds. Add the orange zest, coconut oil and vanilla extract and beat until combined. Gradually add in the almond flour mixture until combined.
3. Roll the dough into 6 balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a baking mat. Pat the dough down into thick flat round tarts about 4″ in diameter.
4. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until tarts just begin to turn a light brown color. Remove and let sit on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes and then move to a wire rack to cool completely.

TO MAKE THE COCONUT WHIPPED CREAM:
1. Open the can of coconut milk and scrape out the cream into a medium sized bowl. Hint: I always open the can from the bottom and pour the milk out into a separate container before scraping out the cream.
2.  Add the vanilla and raw honey to the coconut cream. Whip with a hand mixer until well combined (2-3 minutes). Place the bowl of whipped cream in the fridge until ready to use.

TO ASSEMBLE:
1. Once the tarts have completely cooled, top them with the whipped coconut cream and the sliced fresh fruit, like blueberries, raspberries and strawberries, and serve.
