A simple dairy-free and egg-free Valentine's Day tart recipe. A vegan raspberry custard tart perfect for Valentine's Day or any day, really!
Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Nothing completes an evening better than a decadent dessert! Today I have a recipe for a vegan raspberry custard tart that is perfect for Valentine's Day. This tart looks WAY fancier than it actually is and is oh so good.
What is Vegan Custard?
The basic recipe for custard uses a combination of heavy cream or condensed milk, eggs, and sugar. It is a highly versatile dessert and can be eaten on its own or added to other desserts like bread pudding, pies, or creme brûlée.
How to Make Vegan Custard?
Transforming classic dishes or desserts to be vegan can be tricky. People tend to be very used to how the original looks and tastes. The original custard recipe relies heavily on non-vegan ingredients - milk and eggs.
With a little vegan magic, I came up with a raspberry custard tart that I think is just as thick and fluffy as the real deal. It is completely dairy-free and egg-free, so really, what's not to love?
Ingredients Needed for Vegan Raspberry Custard Tart
The basic recipe for this raspberry tart calls for the following ingredients:
- White Sugar
- White Wine
- Coconut Oil
- Coconut cream or full-fat coconut milk
- Soy Milk
- Egg Replacer
- Vanilla Extract
- Mini Graham Cracker Crusts
If you are feeling a bit fancy and really want to impress, I recommend adding these ingredients to your grocery list too:
- Balsamic vinegar
- Fresh sage or dried rosemary
Tips to Make the Perfect Vegan Valentine's Day Tart
Here are answers to some questions you might have before making this raspberry custard tart:
What kind of dairy-free milk is best to make vegan custard?
Custard is meant to be thick and creamy. This means you want to use dairy-free milk with the highest fat content possible. I used a combination of coconut cream (or full-fat coconut milk) and soy milk in my recipe. Oatmilk and almond milk don't have high-fat content, which will make your custard thinner.
How do you make the mini graham cracker crusts?
The crust is definitely a place you can take a little short cut to save some time. I used Keebler Ready Crusts Graham Cracker Crusts (yes, they are vegan, and yes, you are welcome)!
Do you have to bake this tart recipe?
One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it requires no baking! It is a great dessert to make the night before Valentine's Day and store in the refrigerator until you are ready to enjoy.
What do you top the raspberry tart recipe with?
The options here are endless! A dairy-free whipped cream, chocolate, or fruit would be a perfect addition to this tart.
