Coconut tart with yogurt and fresh fruit
I admit that I am a fanatic sweetheart and I find it hard to say no to sweets. I also admit that I feel and regret why most of the sweets are full of processed sugar, saturated fat and many empty calories. And now that summer is out, I want to go into a program to leave and the 2-3 pounds that we put a bit on holiday.
But, who is going to stay without a treat? At least once in a while?
Here is a very good idea to cover our sweet-tooth in a very healthy and tasty way.
Tart made from dried fruits, coconut and nuts (no bake needed) stuffed with Greek yoghurt flavored with vanilla and organic honey honey and fresh fruit.
This tart has nothing to be jealous of the regular fruit tarts. It is very easy-to-make, delicious and very healthy!! All you'll need is a blender and butterflies to lay the tarts.
Trust me, you're gonna love them!
Materials for tart base: (for 4 tarts or 8-10 mini tarts)
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1,5 cup raw almonds
- 1 cup dried-partially rehydrated figs (you can use pitted dates instead)
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp ground ginger
- Pinch of nutmeg
- Pinch of salt
- 1-2 tbsp of water (in case its needed)
Ingredients for the yogurt cream:
- 1,5 cup low-fat greek yogurt
- Vanilla extract
- Greek Organic fir honey
- Put all the dry ingredients to a blender and mix very well until no big chunks have remained. Add some water if needed. The mixture shoud be sticky and should be able to transform into a ball.
- Put the mixture into the tart pans and press very well until it is smooth. You may use the base of a flat-bottom glass to make it easier.
- Place the tarts into the fridge for at least one hour to set.
- When you are ready to eat the tarts, pull them out of the fridge and prepare the yogurt cream. Place the yogurt into a bowl, add the vanilla extract and the honey for some extra sweetness (quantity depends on your personal taste).
- Top the tart with the flavored yogurt and fresh seasonal fruits.
- Don't spoon the yogurt into the tart unless you are going to eat it.
- The tarts will last a few days in the fridge, properly covered so they don't dry.
- You may eat it as a snack or even a very fruity and healthy breakfast.
