Açai berry and rose tartlets

Girly, pretty and healthy. These tartlets are the perfect afternoon tea treat! So easy to make, vegan, refined sugar-free, plant-based and gluten-free.

The filling is very simple, as it’s made with full fat coconut milk and açai powder. I also added some lemon juice to balance the coconut milk and a hint of vanilla bean paste to enhance the flavor.

I topped them with high quality dried rose petals and blossoms from @suncorefoods. The smell is amazing! When using flowers in your recipes, always make sure to buy edible flowers!
