With a no bake crust, this mini greek yogurt fruit tart is as simple and easy as they come! Filled with raw and healthy ingredients, greek yogurt and topped with fresh fruit, this recipe will not disappoint on your Easter brunch menu.
Happy Thursday ya'll! Technically it's almost happy friday because it's 11:20pm. Which is wayyyyyyy past my bedtime for the record. On a typical weekday I would have been sound a sleep for a good hour and a half already. May have already woken up for one bathroom break.
But I'm wired right now! Because I just went to my fiance's school's basketball game. They made it to the final four in the state tournament for the second year in a row. They left last year's game defeated, but this year they WON! They're headed to the Ohio state basketball championship on Saturday.
You should have seen me at this game, you guys. Being a cheerleader in college I just naturally have yelling and screaming in my blood. Only problem is I don't actually know the basketball rules so I strictly stick to non-technical cheers like "defense" and "let's win." It's a good strategy, right?
With voices gone and hearts pounding, Zach and I got back from the game and just couldn't go to sleep. So what better time than now to talk about a delicious mini greek yogurt fruit tart?
Let's first talk about the crust. Because that's what makes this greek yogurt fruit tart recipe so unique. It's healthy, vegan, no bake, refined sugar and gluten-free! That's a whole lotta healthy in one mini tart.
You start by throwing the whopping 3 ingredients in the food processor. Those three ingredients being cashews, dates and salt. I'm a huge cashew fan so I absolutely love the flavor.
But you could absolutely swap out your favorite nut here. Maybe pecans or almonds? Those both sound delish.
My dates weren't super moist so I ended up adding a tablespoon of water to the mixture to make the crust really come together. After blending for about one minute the dough for the crust should start pulling away from the edges of the food processor to look more like a dough. When you reach this consistency you're golden (see picture for example).
Now you're ready to assemble the greek yogurt fruit tart:
First, take the dough and press it into the mini tart pans. I found using a rubber spatula for this worked best because the dough is somewhat sticky. Make sure you get an even consistency on the bottom and the sides. Repeat this process for the rest of the mini pans. Wha-la, greek yogurt fruit tart crust at your service.
Second, fill the greek yogurt fruit tart with, you guessed it, greek yogurt. You can use your favorite greek yogurt here, and even a flavored greek yogurt if you want to get crazy. My fave is the Yoplait vanilla greek yogurt so that's what I used. Fill the greek yogurt fruit tart almost to the top of the crust with yogurt, leaving some room for the fruit.
Finally, top the greek yogurt with your favorite fruit. I absolutely love fresh berries when it starts to feel like spring, but you can put any an all fruit on top of this recipe. Creativity welcome!
Side note: Zach and I ate these one Saturday morning. I had one and Zach had two so we had one crust left over. I covered the crust and put it in the fridge thinking I could make another one the next morning. Then Zach had a brilliant idea (as always). He decided to fill his greek yogurt fruit tart not with greek yogurt or fruit, but with natural creamy peanut butter and apples. Yes, he layered that thing up with apples and PB.
A delicious combo, maybe one of my favorites of all time actually, but definitely an interesting choice. He said it was good!
So the lesson here is, this crust is very versatile. Go crazy with the toppings. But the greek yogurt fruit tart is the best way to go. It's naturally sweet, super healthy, filled with protein and I see it sitting on your Easter brunch table right now.
