This pistachio and matcha tart is perhaps the most delicious way to get in your antioxidants. The filling is smooth and creamy which is perfectly balanced by the shortbread style crust. It is refined sugar free, sweetened with a small amount of coconut nectar (or coconut sugar), gluten free, dairy free and vegan. Perfect for dessert yet healthy enough to eat for breakfast!
