This Paleo Cream Cheese Tart is sooooo healthy. You can buy these berries all year long, so making this tart is convenient and easy.  Sometimes it’s lovely to enjoy berries in the winter.  The fruit is relatively inexpensive and delicious.  I decided to make this tart so that I could also use the vegan cream cheese that I had prepared the day before. 

This tart can be made from a whole combination of low glycemic fruits. 

A Few Tart Combinations:

  • Apple and pear
  • Strawberry and peach
  • Apple and fig (medium glycemic but high in fiber)
  • Pear and fig
  • Strawberry and apricot
  • Strawberry and raspberry
  • Strawberry and apple

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF PALEO CREAM CHEESE TART?

Blackberries for Paleo Cream Cheese Tart

For this tart I chose fruits that are all low glycemic – blackberries, strawberries, and kiwi.  The darker the fruit, the higher the anti-oxidants.

Blackberries:

Blackberries offer a host of health benefits due to their impressive nutritional profile. Rich in antioxidants like anthocyanins, blackberries help combat oxidative stress and inflammation in the body, potentially reducing the risk of chronic diseases. The high fiber content in blackberries supports digestive health, aids in weight management, and helps regulate blood sugar levels.

Additionally, the presence of vitamins C and K, as well as manganese, contributes to immune system support, bone health, and overall well-being. Including blackberries in your diet is a delicious way to enhance both the taste and nutritional value of your meals.

Strawberries for Paleo Cream Cheese Tart

Strawberries:

Strawberries are not only delicious but also packed with health benefits. Firstly, they are rich in antioxidants, particularly vitamin C, which supports the immune system and helps the body fight inflammation. Secondly, strawberries contain anthocyanins, contributing to heart health by reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Thirdly, their fiber content aids in digestion and helps regulate blood sugar levels. Lastly, strawberries provide essential nutrients like manganese, folate, and potassium, contributing to overall well-being and supporting various bodily functions.

Kiwi for Paleo Cream Cheese Tart

Kiwi:

Kiwi is a nutrient-dense fruit known for its numerous health benefits. First and foremost, it’s an excellent source of vitamin C, providing more than the daily recommended intake in just one serving, which boosts the immune system and promotes skin health. Additionally, kiwi contains dietary fiber, aiding in digestion and supporting heart health by managing cholesterol levels. Its high antioxidant content, including vitamin E, helps combat oxidative stress and inflammation in the body.

Lastly, the potassium in kiwi contributes to proper fluid balance, muscle contractions, and overall cardiovascular health. Incorporating kiwi into your diet can be a tasty way to enhance your overall well-being.

WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF PALEO CREAM CHEESE TART?

The predominant taste sensation of this Paleo Cream Cheese Tart is sweetness.  However, the tart is not too sweet.

WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH PALEO CREAM CHEESE TART?

It’s easy to pair this tart with dessert wine because the Paleo Cream Cheese Tart is not too sweet.  The tanginess of the fresh fruit shines through.  This allows the dessert wine to be sweeter, which is required to create lovely harmony in this partnership.  With the predominant taste sensation of this tart being sweetness, choose a late harvest or Icewine.  A Cabernet Franc Icewine would complement this tart and create wonderful harmony on the palate.  But consider, do you really want to add more sugar to the dessert by including a glass of wine?  If not opt for a cup of tea!

WINE TIPS:

ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Paleo or Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.

Ingredients

1.5 cups almond flour (170 g)

1.5 cups tapioca flour (228 grams)

1 teaspoon sea salt (6 grams)

1 teaspoon Guar Gum (2 grams)

2 eggs

½ cup water plus 1 tablespoon at a time as needed

¼ cup grass fed or plant-based butter or ghee

Fruit Tart Glaze

2 tablespoons no sugar added blackberry jam

2 tablespoons water

¼ teaspoon agar


Instructions

  • *Keto Low-Carb Vegan Cultured Cream Cheese
  • Preheat oven to 350 F (170 C). To make the crust: Add dough mixture to the bowl of food processor or mixer.  Add baking powder and plant-based butter.  Mix until butter is well mixed.  Add water.  Mix again until you have a sticky dough.
  • Transfer dough to piece of parchment.  Roll into a ball.  Cut off ¼ of the ball (to use for the crumble and set aside.  Re-roll dough into a ball again. Cover with another piece of parchment.  Roll into a circle about 6 to 7-inches in diameter.  Remove the top piece of parchment and smooth out the rough edges into a symmetrical circle.  Replace parchment.  Roll until dough is a bigger circle than pie place.  Flip dough in parchment over and roll dough about 1-inch in diameter larger than the standard size (9″) pie plate.
  • Remove top parchment again.  Place the pie plate face side down on dough.  Flip over so dough is inside the plate. You will have to fix the broken edges, using pieces of the thicker sides to patch up the thinner sides so that the sides of the dough is uniform.  No worries.  You won’t see the patchwork. 
  • Par-bake the crust for 10 minutes.  Remove.  Let cool.
  • To make cream cheese base, in a blender mix together cream cheese, apricot jam, and agar. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until needed.
  • When pie crust is room temperature, add cream cheese and smooth.  Slice fruit.  Arrange fruit in a pattern of choice on cream cheese mixture.
  • To make the glaze, in a saucepan over low heat, heat jam.  Add water.  Boil.  Add agar.  Dissolve, whisking constantly.  Let cool for 15 minutes.  Brush over the tart.
  • Transfer tart to the oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until crust is golden and fruit has cooked.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool.

Notes

  • The recipe baking temperature and time is an estimate.  Follow your own oven’s temperature and cooking time. It takes a gas oven 10-15 minutes to reach the desired temperature. Electric ovens can take 10 minutes longer than that.  The age of your oven will also determine the temperature, time for roasting or baking, and where you want to place your dish in the oven.  The bottom of your oven may be hotter than the top, depending on its condition.  This also includes where to set your dish under the broiler.  So use your own best judgment based on the type, condition, and age of your oven.  Prep times will also vary depending on how slow or quickly you like to work.
