{Today I would like to give a warm welcome to Tyler, author of The Primitive Homemaker. She creates some delicious autoimmune-friendly recipes on her site and today, she shares her recipe for a Strawberries & Cream Tart. As a fellow AIP’er, I know exactly what it’s like to feel so restricted that you can’t eat anything. I can’t wait to try this delicious tart! ~Jessica}


I’d like to thank Jessica for giving me the opportunity to share one of my recipes with you all. I really hope this Strawberries & Cream Tart will hit the spot for you!

For those of us following a restricted diet, it is so nice to have a community of people to share our journey with. This community is what inspires us to keep going. I hope that this can connect me with more people who are using diet to heal their bodies and help spread the word of how diet can truly help those suffering from autoimmune diseases.

I have been following the Autoimmune Paleo protocol for about 2 months and it has taken more willpower than I ever knew I had. If you’re following the AIP, can you relate? I mean, I feel like a warrior when I turn down almond butter sometimes. I just want to hop around and congratulate myself for being so mentally strong! 🙂

When You Just Want Something Sweet

If you’re following the AIP, then you know that sugar and sweets should be kept to a minimum. You also know that the links of what you can eat are much shorter than what you can’t.

While there are so many delicious foods that I can eat, but sometimes I just want something sweet and comforting (like this Strawberries & Cream Tart!). Before starting the AIP protocol, there were tons of Paleo treats out there that I could indulge in from time to time. And no, I’m not an advocate for sweet baked goods on a daily basis, but let’s be honest, a treat every now and then can give our will power a super boost and make the journey so much less difficult.

The Birth of the Strawberries & Cream Tart

Last week, when I was experiencing a serious snack craving, I decided to experiment with the tart crust I used for this lemon tart recipe. My husband and I had just gotten an awesome deal on fresh organic strawberries the week before and I had ten pounds in the freezer that needed to get used for something.

After a bit of brainstorming, this is what I came up with. An autoimmune Paleo-friendly strawberries & cream tart. It’s super easy to make, requires a very minimal amount of ingredients, and is just sweet enough to soothe that craving without totally derailing your healing protocol!

Delicious Obsessions Trusted Product Recommendations for Strawberries & Cream Tart

I am always asked about my favorite ingredients and what I use in my own kitchen. I have linked to the products from my affiliate partners that I personally use and recommend. And now, here are the special coupon offers that select affiliate partners are currently offering:

  • Thrive Market: If you sign up through this link, you will get 15% OFF your first order.
  • Amazon, of course, has everything you need for this recipe. Their prices are often very good, though I love to shop around and sometimes find that Thrive Market has better deals. If you like saving money, it’s good to shop around! 🙂
  • I get all of my herbs and spices from Mountain Rose Herbs. I have tried so many other brands and have never found the quality, flavor, and aroma to be as good as the herbs I get from Mountain Rose.

Important Note On Gelatin Types 

When it comes to gelatin, you don’t want any old gelatin off the supermarket shelves. You want to look for 100% grass-fed gelatin from healthy animals. Just like other animal products, quality is important.

That is why I recommend Vital Proteins Grass-Fed Gelatin products and Perfect Supplements products exclusively. I have compared these brands with other brands on the market and the quality far surpasses anything else I’ve tried. I am thrilled to be one of their affiliate partners and support such great products and companies.

Perfect Supplements offers a grass-fed hydrolyzed collagen (cold-soluble) right now and has a gelatin (hot-soluble) in the works for 2016. Read my review of their product here or watch the video below. You can order their own products via their own site here or on Amazon here.

Vital Proteins offers two types of gelatin. The green top (Collagen Protein) is what you need for this recipe and for recipes where you are making gummies, “jello”, etc. The blue top (Collagen Peptides) is cold-water-soluble and does not thicken or gel-like gelatin does. Both are very nutritious, but can’t be used interchangeably. You can order their own products via their own site here or on Amazon here.

Strawberries & Cream Tart (Gluten and Dairy Free, Autoimmune Paleo)

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

An autoimmune Paleo-friendly strawberries & cream tart. It’s super easy to make, requires a very minimal amount of ingredients, and is just sweet enough to soothe that craving without totally derailing your healing protocol!



Cream Filling:

Strawberry Swirl:

  • 2 cups organic strawberries
  • 2 tbsp. organic coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp. grass-fed gelatin
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk


  1. Preheat over to 325.
  2. Before you start, your dates need to be completely softened. You can do this either by soaking them overnight or steaming them over boiling water for about 7 minutes.
  3. For the crust:
    In a high-speed blender or food processor, cream your shredded coconut. To do this, process the coconut until it has formed a thick, oily paste.
  4. Once your coconut is creamed, add 1 cup of softened dates. Process until you had a dark, thick, dough. It will appear oily, and slightly crumbly. Your crust mixture will become more cohesive once you begin pressing the mixture into your pan.
  5. Press your mixture down evenly into an 8" spring-form pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges begin to turn brown. Once your crust is done, set it aside and allow it to cool while you prepare the filling.
  6. For the cream filling:
    Blend coconut milk (you can make your own), dates, gelatin, arrowroot flour, and coconut oil. Blend until well combined. Pour this mixture into your springform pan, on top of your crust.
  7. For strawberry swirl:
    Blend strawberries (you may use either fresh, or frozen strawberries that have been steamed and completely thawed), coconut oil, gelatin, and coconut milk. Blend completely.
  8. Allow 5-7 minutes before pouring into cream mixture. This allows the cream to "set" so that you get the swirly design on top.
  9. Slowly pour the strawberry mixture into the cream. I poured mine in a sporadic design and used a butter knife to create a design.
  10. Refrigerate, and allow to set for at least 2 hours before cutting.

Hey AIP (and even non-AIP) Friends! Listen Up! It’s Finally Time for “FAST” Food on the AIP!

Yes, you read that right. FAST FOOD on the AIP! How is that even possible you ask? Well, I’ll tell you:

The Instant Pot!

Yes, this small kitchen appliance will take your healing autoimmune protocol meals to a whole new level of deliciousness and simplicity. You’ll be preparing gourmet, restaurant-style dishes in the comfort of your own home, easily and quickly.

I know, it sounds too good to be true, but I assure you, it’s not. And listen, while this eBook was created for our AIP friends, everyone will LOVE the nourishing, real food recipes in this book, regardless of your eating style.

The Book I Wish I’d Had

I’ve done the AIP twice in my life, once for 6 months and then the second time for about 18 months. Both times I found myself struggling with the amount of time it took to prepare my food. And, because our food choices are limited, especially during the initial healing phase, I started to get really bored and stuck in a rut with food.

That is why I am so passionate about The Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook that myself and 36 other experienced AIP bloggers and practitioners have put together just for you. We created this resource as a way to help you alleviate the burden of time and energy that comes with cooking AIP meals from scratch.

The First Book of its Kind!

This is the first digital eBook written specifically for the AIP community using the Instant Pot. This book:

  • Focuses on the pressure cooker function, creating fast and delicious meals. Are you nervous about using a pressure cooker? No worries. There’s a tutorial in the front of the e-cookbook.
  • Features over 140 recipes, including Broths, Sauces/Condiments, Vegetables, Poultry, Meat, Seafood, Organ Meat, and Dessert.
  • Special diet modifications: Over half the recipes in this e-cookbook can be easily modified for Low-FODMAP, GAPS/SCD, and Coconut-Free diets. (Charts are included at the back of the book.)
  • Packed with flavor with such diverse recipes as: Bone Broth (of course), Cranberry BBQ Sauce, Marinara Sauce, Cauli-fredo Sauce, Bacon Orange Cherry Jam, “Baked” Sweet Potatoes, Cauliflower Rice, Artichokes with Lemon Tarragon Dipping Sauce, Smothered Okra, Creamy Kabocha Squash Soup, Fall Off the Bone Whole Chicken, Mole Chicken with Bluecumber Salsa, Lemongrass and Ginger Chicken Zoodle Soup, Stuffed Acorn Squash, Turkey and Gravy, Speedy Chili, Teriyaki Garlic Beef, Ukrainian Borscht, Sticky Pork Short Ribs, Pork Vindaloo, Lamb and Apricot Curry, Simple French Navarin Lamb Stew, Chicken Liver Pâté, Steak and Kidney Stew, Tongue Tacos, Jambalaya, Steamed Crab, Leek and Shrimp Risotto, Salmon and Sweet Potato Chowder, Poached Pears, “Chocolate” Cake, Pina Colada Tapioca Pudding, Mini Pumpkin Pies, and over 100 other fabulous recipes!
  • Written by 37 AIP bloggers who have used the paleo autoimmune protocol to improve their own health. The result is a book far better than any one person could have created alone.

It’s time to stop using all of your precious time and energy slaving away in the kitchen. Eating real food can be time-consuming enough, but adding the AIP on top of it can lead to even more work.

Now you can FINALLY enjoy “fast” food on your healing protocol. Less time, less stress, more flavor. You deserve it. Learn more about the Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook and how to download your copy here (or just click on the image below).
