Today’s a special day, not just because this recipe I’m about to share with you will become a go-to for you this summer, but because it’s my birthday (#hello29)! I’m normally not one for big birthday celebrations or making a big fuss about it but with each year I grow older, I become more filled with gratitude. I’m incredibly grateful for everything life has shown me in the last couple of decades including the people I love, you + this amazing community here on NS, and all the things to come this year – lots of celebrations to be had! Added bonus that the July 4th is right around the corner and these are super simple to make and share with your friends and family.
A couple years ago one of the first dessert recipes I shared on the NS Blog was the Raw Peach Tart. It was such a hit that it’s one of very few recipes that snuck it’s way into the Nutrition Stripped Cookbook #NScookbook (you can order it for presale here and get bonus recipes!). I was inspired by that classic recipe to make these beautiful single serving Raw Strawberry Summer Tarts utilizing the best of the season, strawberries! You can get all fancy and make the Coconut Whipped Cream as well, which I highly recommend, or at least drizzle a little honey on top of the sliced fruit and you’re good to go.
A couple tips if making these for the Fourth of July, make several of these tarts with strawberries, some with blackberries, blueberries, and banana- you can decorate a table and place them all in a flag formation for functional style! A couple recipes you may enjoy with this one is the Coconut Whipped Cream and Simply Coconut Ice Cream.
