By this time, everyone is looking for the perfect last minute Fourth of July dessert that is not only festive, but tastes delicious. Now you have found a treat that will be a crowd pleaser among all, vegan or non vegan. This recipe includes seasonal fresh fruit along with a decadent vegan whipped cream simply made from coconut milk.
- 48 vegan premade mini tart shells
- 3 oz of bluberries
- 1/2 pint of strawberries
- 1 (14 oz) can of full fat coconut milk
- 1/6 cup of vegan powdered sugar
Begin to whip the coconut milk in a large bowl while slowly adding the powdered sugar. Fill each of the tart shells with the whipped coconut cream. Line up the tart shells in a 6 by 8 formation. Then in the top left hand corner put four blueberries in each of 9 tart shells (3 by 3 square) to make the "stars". Then cut the strawberries in thin rounds and cut each round into halves. Start out with a half round of strawberry on each tart. Then on the next row, add on the botton half of those tarts, a half round of strawberry. Keep repeating this and you will be left with the cutest american flag dessert for your July 4th party.
