IMG_4209

The crust for this tart includes the spectacular combination of “super fruits”: Mulberry Berries, Gogi Berries, and Golden Berries.  “Super” berries are popular and exotic… and expensive.  Dried blueberries, cranberries, and raisins have significant nutritional benefits (without the carbon footprint!)

July 4th is a celebration of independence: break with tradition and go indulge in a fresh healthy tart that uses ingredients in a novel way. Good for your body, mind, and soul, this delicious, vegan, raw, healthy, and easy to make, this pretty dessert should debut on your table sometime this summer.
