This is the easiest Strawberry Tart Recipe ever. With only 5 ingredients and about 10 minutes of prep time, you can still impress your friends and family.
I know it's October but my local farmer's market had strawberries for .99 a pound and I just couldn't resist whipping up one more strawberry recipe before winter comes. I decided to keep this strawberry tart recipe easy by making it no bake and just using 5 common ingredients.
I brought this to a friend's house and no one could believe it didn't have sugar in it. That is a successful recipe in my book!
How to Make a Tart
What makes a tart a tart? The shape. You need a tart pan to make a tart. A tart pan has a removable bottom, similar to a springform pan so that you serve it without having to transfer the whole thing to a serving platter. Tart pans, in general, also have fluted edges.
You can use any shape tart pan, sometimes the rectangular tart pans look fancier than a round pan. You can even make this into mini tarts.
And then you need a crust and a filling. I chose to use an almond flour crust and a cream cheese filling for this Strawberry Tart Recipe.
Almond Flour Crust
The first part of this easy Strawberry Tart is the almond flour crust. I use an unblanched almond flour in this recipe because it looks more like a traditional graham cracker crust than using blanched almond flour. Unblanched almond flour has the same texture but they don't remove the skin of the almonds because processing them.
You can use blanched almond flour, grind your own almonds for this recipe, or use almond meal. Since almond flour has become more popular over the last few years it isn't much more expensive than almond meal. There used to be a much bigger difference in price.
Cream Cheese Filling
I love cream cheese. I could probably eat a block of cream cheese with a spoon. Anytime I do anything with cream cheese I need to take a bite. I bought low carb bagels recently and they were really just a vehicle to get the cream cheese into my mouth.
The only thing better than cream cheese is cream cheese filling. Just adding a little sweetener to cream cheese is really all it needs. And that is all I used. Just 2 ingredients to this luscious tart filling.
If you would like a firmer crust you can add a tablespoon of powdered gelatin. This will help the crust set. Or you can go ahead and bake the crust to dry it out a bit. We didn't mind the moist, buttery almond flour crust as is. I was able to cut and serve the slices of strawberry tart with a large knife. No prob.
Other variations of this Strawberry Tart Recipe to try:
Add half a teaspoon of lemon extract and swirl in ¼ cup of raspberry puree (just thaw frozen raspberries).
Add ½ cup of peanut butter to the cream cheese filling and leave off the berries.
Add a teaspoon of cinnamon to the crust and use finely ground pecans instead of almond flour.
Mix ½ cup sugar-free chocolate chips into the filling and garnish with a sprinkle of cocoa powder.

Hi there Taryn - I have been using your Joy Filled Eats Sweeteneer for ages now, for everything!.
I would appreciate you comments on the recent article re Erythritol, if possible
I don't think there is enough info yet. Personally, I'm fine using a combo of allulose/xylitol/stevia without adding erythritol. I don't love the cooling effect of erythritol.
You can make my sweetener with just allulose and/or xylitol and stevia. You just need to keep the ratio correct (1 tsp stevia to 14 oz granular sweetener).
Would a pie pan work? I do not have a tart pan, maybe not much of a difference, but thought I would ask!
Yes, but it might be hard to get neat pieces. Using a baked crust might hold up better. Joyfilledeats.com/pie-crust
Did you know the add on the bottom of your site, is so biggg, I could not even follow your recipe. Thanks for the goodies. Your pop up on the bottom, There is plenty of room on the right side of the screen.?
Judy, I had this issue also! There was a small “x” in the upper right corner of the two adds that were intruding. When I pressed the x’s they both disappeared,😊
I've made this tart several times for company, and it's always a hit! Most of our friends are NOT Keto so I like to serve great Keto meals/desserts to show them you can eat yummy stuff, and still lose weight & get healthy. I've made this tart with strawberries and whipped cream, and with Lily's chocolate chips. Both are delicious! Thanks for the great recipes Taryn! I have several favorites, and I always use your sweetener blend.

Lovely and delicious! I used strawberries that I roasted (got the recipe from Jacinda at the Northern Nester's web site) because my strawberried were a bit sour. Roasting them makes nice juice, red ripe color and brings out incredible sweetness. The additional syrup was great with the roasted strawberries on top of the cream cheese filling, and I had some almond meal in my freezer from about 6 months ago that was awesome for the crust. This was a reall winner! I love all your recipes and appreciate the time and effort it takes to create them. Thank you so much, Taryn!
