Blueberry Tart with Lemon-Honey-Yogurt Filling
An easy gluten-free dessert to celebrate Summer and blueberry season!
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 gluten-free Blueberry Tart…
Let’s start the graham cracker crust.
It is simply:
gluten-free graham crackers
a touch of sugar
and an egg white.
You mix it all together in a food processor, then gently press into a tart pan and bake.
Pro Tip: 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 yogurt filling.
This is simply:
the drained yogurt
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 perfec
Just look how creamy and luscious it is!
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.
Now it’s time to assemble the tart!
Spread the Lemony Yogurt filling and then top with blueberries!
Then top with Blueberries!
You can lay out the strawberries any way you like— in a pattern or randomly, and it is going to look great!
I tend to start with an outside circle, then move to smaller circles. But I’ve also, just thrown them on randomly! It all works!
The color of fresh berries pops against the whiteness of the yogurt filling and is super pretty!
As I mentioned above, you could also switch up the fruit and top this with any combination of summer berries and it’s a standout Summer dessert!
Try a mix of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries for something different or for something festive!
While we make this mostly in the Summer/ early Fall when the berries are freshest, it is also a great dessert around the holidays if you find great looking fruit!
