Berry Chocolate Pudding Tart

My Memorial Day weekend was filled with bags of clothing and furniture and box cutters. Everyone’s favorite kind of weekend activity : Moving! We didn’t move far but that doesn’t change the fact that we had to move ALL THE THINGS. 

My poor 8 1/2 month pregnant body was definitely feeling the burn. 

Fortunately, some friends invited us over for a BBQ on Monday which forced us to take a break from unpacking and relax.

This also forced me to come up with my first culinary creation in the new kitchen. A welcome interruption for sure. 

I love using my avocado chocolate pudding as a filling for a tart or pie, and since the holiday weekend typically signifies the beginning of summer, I opted to include some fresh tasty berries! They also lended some patriotic flair in tribute to the holiday’s true purpose; to remember those who have given their lives in service of our great country!

The almond meal crust is nutty and wholesome, but if you want a more traditional tart crust, you can swap the almond meal for a fine grain almond flour.
