Why I made this Strawberry Tart with Almond Cream Filling.

In our pre-keto days, Grumpy and I would enjoy a Strawberry Almond Cream Tart on our anniversary. It was a non keto, cooking light recipe that we absolutely loved (and still do), but we don’t eat it anymore since going Keto. I wanted to make something similar that would fit into our keto diet as well as be easy, delicious, and gorgeous!

Since we can’t have graham crackers on this diet, unless I make a keto version of them myself, I decided to make a shortbread cookie crust for the tart. Then, I just used cream cheese, powdered Swerve, almond extract, and some heavy cream for the almond cream filling. Strawberries are one fruit that is keto friendly so, just fresh sliced strawberries arranged over the top of the cream filling gave the tart the freshness it needed to be the perfect spring dessert!

Answers to your questions about Strawberry Tart with Almond Cream Filling

What is the best tart pan to use for this recipe?

My favorite tart pan is a non-stick one with a removable loose bottom. This allows you to “push” the tart up and out of the mold without breaking it.

Can I use any type of sweetener in this recipe?

I have used both granulated Monkfruit and Swerve sweetener in the crust and it turned out great. I have not tried stevia in the cookie, so I can’t say how it will turn out. However, I steer away from using Stevia too much because for me it will have a bitter aftertaste. My recommendation is to stick with Monkfruit or Swerve.

Can I substitute coconut oil for the butter?

Yes, you can substitute coconut oil for butter in this recipe.

Can I use fat free or reduced fat cream cheese instead of full fat cream cheese?

If you do this, you are then defeating the purpose of eating Keto. The Keto diet is high fat, low carb, moderate protein. You need the fat in your diet when eating Keto so I do not recommend it.

I absolutely love my non-stick removable loose bottom tart pie pan! This pan allows me to bake a gorgeous dessert and serve it outside of the pan! Allow the tart crust to cool about 20 minutes, then push the loose bottom up and the tart will pop right out! I highly recommend this pan for all of your tart making!

    We love this Tart. I went to make one today and was out of almond flour. Can I use coconut flor instead?

      Hi Debbie, replacing almond flour with coconut flour means adjusting the amount of liquid and eggs added. I have not made this recipe without almond flour, and cannot guarantee how it would turn out without having tested it myself. A guide for a starting point in subbing almond for coconut flour is to use 1/4 cup of coconut flour in place of each cup of flour. That would be 1/2 cup coconut flour and omit the 2 cups of almond flour.
