So let’s make it!

gluten-free graham crackers

sugar

butter

egg white

a pinch of salt

lots of fresh strawberries

And it looks all fancy but is super easy to make!

And it can be partially or fully made-ahead (see tips below)

Important Pro Tip: The yogurt needs to be drained for several hours or overnight. This is an important step so that water drains and the filling is thick and creamy. So definitely plan a day ahead!

And draining the yogurt is easy!

Literally scoop the yogurt into a cheese cloth place the entire thing in a large strainer sitting inside a bowl and gently cover and refrigerate.

Now let’s make the tart!

Let’s start the graham cracker crust.

This is the only part of the tart that require backing and it is simply:

gluten-free graham crackers

sugar

butter

egg white.

You mix it all together in a food processor…

 

Then gently press into a tart pan and bake.

As the graham cracker crust needs to cool before adding the Lemon Honey Yogurt filling, you should plan to either make the crust a day ahead, or if it’s cool outside, place outside a few minutes to speed up the cooling process….

Next, on to the no-bake, Lemon Honey Yogurt Filling

This is simply:

the drained yogurt

honey

lemon juice

blended together for the perfect sweet-tart taste.

Just a note, it’s not overly sweet or tart, more like slightly flavored yogurt and just perfect!

Just look at how creamy and luscious it is!

gluten-free Simple Strawberry Tart yogurt filling www.healthygffamily.comBefore spreading the yogurt filling into the baked and cooled graham cracker crust, gently remove the tart from the baking pan.

It comes out really easily, then holding the inside of the tart, gently lift off the tart pan base. If you forget this step, you can removed the tart from the pan after filling but leave the base.

Now it’s time to assemble the tart!

Spread the Lemon Honey Yogurt Filling into the graham cracker crust…

And add the strawberries!

I trt to slice the strawberries in a similar thickness but if they’re not, that’s ok too!

And I like to place all the strawberries on a plate and try to choose similar sized slices when I first start laying them on the tart.

But importantly.You can lay out the strawberries any way you like— in a pattern or randomly, and it is going to look great!

The color of fresh berries pops against the whiteness of the yogurt filling and is super pretty!

That’s it!

The final tart is always a show stopper, but you can see how simple it is!

And it is super fresh tasting with all the juicy strawberries!

Who wants a slice?

Pro Tips on making partially or fully ahead of serving:

  • Graham Cracker Crust — can be made a day or 2 ahead
  • Lemon Honey Yogurt Filling – can be made a day ahead (just stir well before spreading into graham cracker crust)
  • Strawberries – I find best to cut just before placing on tart
  • Entire Tart – the entire tart can be assembled a day before serving, though it continues to keep well in the refrigerator for several days.

Hope you love it as much as we do!
