Vegan Lemon Tarts

Prev

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.
