Vegan Lemon Tarts

Prev Next

Say hello to vegan lemon tarts! These tarts are so light and full of flavour, made using Califia Farms Unsweetened Vanilla Almond. The almond milk creates a creamy texture (minus the cream) and the vanilla adds natural sweetness. Tip: save some vanilla almond milk to serve on the side.
