Gluten-Free and Vegan Sweet Berry Tarts

MiniBerryTarts

In the summer time not many people enjoy turning their ovens on but I can’t get away from my sweet tooth. These berry tarts will satisfy your gluten free and vegan friends while at the same time fulfill that sweet tooth. These tarts are easy and no bake. Make them in mini tart pans for simple serving and clean up.
