Hey everyone!! I made these tarts last week sometime, and I have been a bit slow at getting them up on the blog… so better late then ever! These little guys are such a perfect treat anytime of the year, but I guess they have a bit more meaning if you make them for your significant other on Feb 14th (sorry I really don’t understand Valentines day so I sort of avoid talking about the name of it) – I am talking to you, Men – unless you usually do the cooking, then ladies go at it!

The base of the beautiful tarts are super nutty, filled with hints of coconut, cacao and dates and the filling is super berrylicious using strawberries, and blueberries just like a friend of mine recommended I do! They are so super easy to make, super delicious, made from natural ingredients and healthy… like super, doooper healthy!

The recipe was inspired by my friend Niki, from RebelRecipes, I adapted it based on what I had at home, and what flavours I thought I could add to spark up the “love” factor. You can find the original recipe by my girl at www.rebelrecipes.com!

I really hope you all enjoy these simple little treats!

Love from your Greek Food Goddess XOXO

  2. Transfer the mix, and divide into four (this recipe makes four tarts).
  3. Press the mixture into the tarts using your hands, going all the way up the sides (I used a 9cm tin).
  4. While you’re making the fillings, throw the tarts into the fridge to “set”
  5. FOR PINK TARTS: Melt coconut oil, and add it to a blender.
  6. Add in the strawberry mixture and blend till smooth.
  7. Add mixture to 2/4 of the tarts, and place back in the fridge to firm up!
  8. FOR BLUE TARTS: Repeat process for blueberry filling and add to the other 2 tarts!. Add them back into the fridge.
  9. Nikii suggested you let them set for around 30 minutes, but to be safe I kept mine in there for an hour before indulging..
  10. I added roses, lavender and berries to top off these beauties!! I really hope you enjoy!
