This vegan puff pastry tart with strawberries is super easy and quick to prepare! It is the perfect dessert for warm summer days because it is very light, fruity, sweet, and flaky.

Bake a puff pastry sheet until golden brown, spread it with the whipped vegan custard, and decorate with halved fresh strawberries – that’s all the magic! If you want to take it a step further, make a homemade puff pastry according to this vegan rough puff pastry recipe

Aline’s Tip: Sprinkle the puff pastry border with sugar before baking, makes for a delicious sweet crust, yummy!

It’s not exactly a vegan custard you are spreading over the baked puff pastry, but somewhat similar and lighter. Instead of cooking the heavy cream with the rest of the ingredients, whip it and mix it with the custard. Makes for an airier topping.

BUT, if you prefer a real vegan custard, cook the heavy cream with the rest of the ingredients and add one additional tablespoon of cornstarch.

Are you in a hurry? Feel free to use a premade vanilla custard, cream, or pudding! 😉
