Anyway you slice it, this BLUEBERRY TART with Lemon Honey Yogurt Filling + Graham Cracker Crust is a perfect Summer dessert!
I made this a few weeks ago for my son’s birthday and plan to make it again for Father’s Day, then maybe again around July 4th… you get the point.
It’s super easy to make, festive and a total crowd pleaser! The slightly tart filling pairs perfectly with the juicy blueberries and graham cracker crust for a perfect sweet-tart taste.
All you need is 9 ingredients: lots of fresh blueberries, greek yogurt, fresh lemon juice, honey, gluten-free graham crackers, sugar, butter, egg white, and a pinch of salt.
And it can be made partially or fully ahead of time and is super easy.
One important 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.
Overnight the yogurt drains and releases water which you discard.
Now back to making the tart.
Let’s start the graham cracker crust.
It is simply gluten-free graham crackers, pulsed in a food processor, sugar, butter and an egg white.
You mix it all together in a food processor, then gently press into a tart pan and bake.
The tart crust can be made a day ahead.
Next, on to the yogurt filling. This is simply the drained yogurt blended with honey and lemon juice for the perfect sweet-tart taste.
Before 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.
Spread the Lemony Yogurt filling and then top with blueberries! That’s it!
You could top this with any combination of summer berries and it’s a standout Summer dessert!
This simple tart is fun, festive and delicious!
Hope you love it as much as we do!
