My Adaptation of a Lemon Almond Tart

…Ok, ok… I supposed that yo had notice that I am a HUGE fan of Naturally Sassy. She and I share many things in common and when I first knew about her, I was shocked because I could not believe that there was another ballerina and entrepreneur oriented to a healthy lifestyle and that like me, is young and has its own food blog. I began to follow her on Instagram and visiting her blog. She posts these amazing, fun, delicious and healthy recipes and I had cook many of them like: Mango Cheesecake Squares, Pecan & Caramel Dessert Pots, Raw Gingerbread Slices and the last one: Lemon Almond Tart!

The dough smelled like vanilla crackers in the oven, the filling…please, let not talk about it; it has the color of almonds and the citric flavor of lemons. I used lemon extract because I did not have lemons on my tree but if you have fresh lemons, go for it!

I had never made a lemon curd in my life and I am very happy that this one was my first one, thanks Naturally Sassy. This VEGAN DESSERT has simple ingredients that create a dish to die for!

Definitely, almond with lemon is a great combination for a dessert because it turns to have a balanced flavor and texture. Just like peanut spread and bananas!
