June 2020: We made this gluten-free Blueberry Tart to celebrate my son’s 15th birthday because it’s one of his favorite desserts!

And we made it again this past weekend… Something tells me it will be on repeat all summer!

It’s super easy to make and beyond yummy!

The slightly tart filling pairs perfectly with the juicy blueberries and graham cracker crust for a perfect sweet-tart taste in every bite!

Plus, while we love it with all blueberries, you can switch up the fruits and do a mix of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries for something different or for something festive! (see photo below)

Hope you love it as much as we do!

Original post…

Anyway you slice it, this gluten-free BLUEBERRY TART with Lemon Honey Yogurt Filling + Graham Cracker Crust is a perfect Summer dessert! (although we’ve been known to eat it any time of day!)

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.

egg white

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 gluten-free Blueberry Tart…

Let’s start the graham cracker crust.

It is simply:

gluten-free graham crackers

a touch of sugar

melted butter

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 proces

Next, on to the 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 perfec

Just look how creamy and luscious it is!

gluten-free Simple berry 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!

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!

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!

    1. Great question! I am going to update the recipe to reflect that we make this with plain Fage 0% milkfat Greek yogurt. Any plain Greek yogurt or Greek dairy free yogurt you love will work, but it should definitely be a greek yogurt because you want something thicker. Let me know if you make it.

    1. Great question! While I’ve made many of our recipes with egg substitutes, I’ve never tried this one with an egg substitute. Since it’s only 1 egg white, something like a flax egg should work… let me know if you try it.

  1. So delicious. It reminded me of cheesecake because the Greek yogurt gets so thick when it’s strained! I’ll be making this all summer

  2. I just made this yesterday and it was a HUGE hit! I was short on time so a store-bought gf graham crust and unstrained Greek yogurt (Fage plain whole milk) were what I had to work with. We used blackberries on top and it was delicious! Took about 5 minutes to assemble.

  3. This was delicious!!!! I used Pamela’s gf graham crackers which I felt were sweet enough so I did not add the extra sugar in the crust. I also did not have a tart pan so I pressed it into a glass pie dish which gave it a nice rustic look and the slices still came out nicely. We used red and blue berries for Memorial Day. Growing up my mom made this no bake cherry cheese pie at Christmas time that I always loved but due to digestive issues I do no eat most dairy and the pie contains condensed milk and cream cheese. I am so happy to have this alternative that tastes nearly identical and so much fresher and healthier!
