Ingredients
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 9 ounces organic fresh or unsweetened frozen strawberries* diced
  • 2 tablespoons organic coconut palm sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 ounces soft goat cheese room temperature
  • 4 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
  • Additional fresh strawberries to garnish**
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom of your tart pan and set aside.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, lightly whisk the egg white, maple syrup and salt together for a few seconds. Add the shredded coconut and gently stir to mix and coat the coconut. Spread the mixture in the prepared tart pan and gently press to evenly cover the sides and bottom of the pan. Bake for 14-15 minutes, until the edges are golden and the crust is set. Remove and let cool completely.
  3. In a medium sized mixing bowl, stir together the strawberries, coconut sugar and lemon juice and set aside to macerate for about half an hour.
  4. In another bowl, combine the goat cheese, cream cheese and vanilla and beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Using a spatula, fold in the strawberries and collected juices and gently stir and mash until well blended. Spoon the strawberry-cheese mixture into the cooled crust and spread evenly. Pop it into the fridge and let it chill for at least 1-2 hours. It will firm up as it chills (although, if you use frozen strawberries they will release more liquid, so the filling will be a bit softer in the end but still delicious).
  5. When ready to serve, take the tart from the fridge and remove the bottom of the tart pan. Slide the tart onto a cutting board or serving platter and garnish with sliced strawberries or a few shavings of dark chocolate (or both!). Using a serrated knife, slice into wedges and serve. It is best eaten on the day it is prepared, and can be made in the morning to be served in the evening.
NOTES:

Serves 8 Based on using a 5 x 14 inch rectangle tart pan or similar sized pan with removable bottom.

*If using frozen strawberries, let defrost for about half an hour so they are soft enough to dice but not mushy.

**Or, if using frozen strawberries, a few shavings of dark chocolate.
