These lightened up lemon & raspberry yogurt tart is the perfect light treat! The no bake sweet and tangy yogurt based filling is made with a few simple ingredients and nestled in a delicious, nutty almond crust. Top with juicy raspberries and you have an easy, beautiful and delicious dessert to enjoy year round.
Since we’ve been home so much more this past year, we’ve been having brunch at home more often! It’s a fun family tradition that we’ve established over time. We love to gather around the table on Sunday mornings, savor our coffee, enjoy all of our favorite breakfast foods and finish with a light dessert or treat. It gives us something to look forward to each week and allows me to get a little creative in the kitchen too!
This fresh and light lemon yogurt tart has been a work in progress with a few attempts and variations, but I’ve finally got the flavors just right with the perfect amount of sweet & tartness. It’s quickly become a well-loved treat by everyone in the family and is a perfect springtime and summer treat!
Aside from the obvious brunch, this would be a delectable treat for Easter, Mother’s Day, baby and wedding showers and for backyard BBQ’s. It’s such a quick, healthier-for-you treat that you can make in under 30 minutes that it’s really one of those desserts that you’ll find yourself coming back to time and time again. It’s so easy to make that no one will blame you for whipping it up to enjoy all week long too!
This lemon tart is basically the dessert of my dreams: a delicious nutty crust, a lemon filling reminiscent of cheesecake (but wayyyy lighter) and topped with lots of fresh berries. We’re not big “cake” people in our home so I love creating lighter fruit inspired treats. Every now and then I get a craving for sweets and these tarts are the perfect combination of sweet and crunchy with this toasted crust and with a creamy and tangy lemon filling. When creating desserts I try to stick to more natural ingredients and sweeteners and this recipe does all that without sacrificing flavor!
This tart has an almond crust that is naturally gluten-free and the toasted nut flavor complements the lemon perfectly. While I love the crust, the creamy filling of this lemon tart truly does steal the show! I love lemon inspired dishes so I couldn’t wait to add a lemon tart to my recipe book! The filling is made with just a handful of ingredients: FAGE Total Plain Greek Yogurt, light cream cheese, lemon zest & juice and naturally sweetened with maple syrup.
FAGE Total Greek Yogurt is one of my must-have fridge items! Greek yogurt is a powerhouse in the kitchen and is so versatile (seriously, I use it in so many recipes). From breakfast (this charcuterie board is a fave), to smoothies, to desserts (you need these ice cream sandwiches in your life), dinner and more, I love keeping it stocked. FAGE is my absolute favorite as it has the creamiest texture, amazing taste and made with quality ingredients. As someone who is always looking for ways to add more protein to my routine, I love that FAGE Greek Yogurt packs a major punch of protein. With three different fat percentages available (0%, 2% or 5%) there is something for everyone and every lifestyle.
Using FAGE Total 2% Plain Greek Yogurt in this tart recipe is a great way to lighten up the typical tart recipe.
For the lemon tart filling, creamy FAGE Total 2% Plain Greek Yogurt combines with a small amount of light cream cheese for a lightened up cheesecake flavor. The addition of fresh lemon juice and lemon zest is perfectly tangy and sweet when mixed all together. Once mixed well, you simply add to your cooled tart crust and adorn with fruit of your choice. Raspberries, blackberries and blueberries all go together extremely well with the lemon flavor. I love adding a few mint leaves to add a dynamic flavor profile too!
