Strawberry Custard Tarts

Keto Strawberry Custard Tarts are a delicious dessert that you can whip up last minute for a family get together, or use as a Sunday Dessert idea. Whether you make individual tarts, or a large family size version, your guests will be coming back for seconds with this yummy recipe.

When I was younger I would always look forward to springtime and a trip to the local Tim Hortons for a Strawberry Tart. They were only available for a limited time each year, but boyyyy did I make the best of that short window! For me, this recipe brings back, childhood, spring and family time all rolled into one delicious bite.

Our version of the strawberry custard tart has a cookie crumb base which really adds to the overall dish on our opinion. We prefer to cook this a family style dish, but it can be cooked in individual tarts. This recipe has been a family favourite for years, when we started to keto-fy recipes, this one was right at the top of the list!
We hope you enjoy it.
