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
My favorite tart pan is a non-stick one with a removable loose bottom. This allows you to the tart up and out of the mold without breaking it.
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.
Yes, you can substitute coconut oil for butter in this recipe.
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.
