I made this Greek yogurt fruit tart to offer a gluten-free, added-sugar-free dessert for Gloria. Everyone loved it.

Instructions Checklist

  • Soak dates in a bowl of warm water until softened, about 10 minutes. Drain; chop dates in half and place in a food processor. Add cashews and pulse until a thick, moist 'dough' is formed and cashews are all broken up. Press dough evenly over the bottom and partly up the sides of the prepared pan to make the crust.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crust is set, about 10 minutes.

  • Blend yogurt, cream cheese, almond extract, and stevia together in a bowl until smooth. Spread mixture on top of the baked crust. Decorate with peaches, strawberries, and blueberries.

Cook's Notes:

This can also be made in a pie plate, cake pan, or springform pan.

Crust can be made 1 to 2 days in advance. Cover tightly and keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Baking crust is optional but helps it hold together better. Instead of dates, try 1 1/2 cups raisins or dried cranberries. Instead of cashews, try walnuts. A smooth, softer nut is best. I don't recommend almonds. Use salted nuts for a salty/sweet crust.

Any flavor Greek yogurt will work.

Use any variety of fresh fruits you like.

I would rate this 10 stars if I could! There is nothing about this tart that I don't love--it's absolutely delicious it's relatively easy to make and it's beautiful! I used raisins and walnuts in the crust and baked it in a 9-inch springform for 12 minutes. In the filling I used plain Greek yogurt that I added a little honey and vanilla extract to. I would recommend creaming the cream cheese until it's completely smooth before adding in the yogurt (to avoid lumps). I also omitted the stevia since I added honey to the yogurt. I topped it with strawberries oranges bananas kiwis and blueberries. This tastes kind of cheesecake like; so it's like you're eating something really bad for you but it's actually pretty good for you! I love it thank you! Read More
