A Quick and easy, no bake, low calorie Tart with a gluten free crust and a tangy lemon Greek yoghurt and fresh fruits filling…a perfect healthy dessert!!
Recently I have been questioning myself a lot…Have I become a health nut😅? I am all taking care of myself…hitting the gym regularly, worried about getting the recommended eight hours of shut eye, dreaming of kale, Spinach, gluten free crackers, the word Samosa pisses me off, using the word healthy and organic every now and then, I feel sad for unhealthy eaters😌….well I very well can be branded a bonafide healthy Nut!!!
Thanks to the weight loss challenge I took in Feb this year which helped me lose a few pounds and some inches, I feel light and active nowadays and very careful about what’s crossing my lips. My refrigerator is always full with fresh produce and the fruit basket on the kitchen counter is never empty. I have permanently closed my doors to processed and high sodium content foods and snack on nuts and seeds to satisfy my snack cravings.
This time it was my turn to decide on the theme for the 139 th Foodie Monday Bloghop. Bitten by the healthy bug this health freak decided on Healthy Desserts!! Well making Desserts that too healthy is big challenge in itself . So let’s get set to check out what all my fellow bloggers have dished out today.
My recipe is a low calorie, no bake Tart with a crust made from Dates and Nuts and that makes it gluten free too! The filling is tangy, refreshing, lemon flavoured, protein packed Greek Yoghurt with traces of lemon zest sweetened with honey with a sprinkling of rainbow of fresh juicy seasonal fruits. I used a mix of coarsely ground Cashewnuts, Walnuts and Almonds for the crust with soaked dates. I must warn you that the crust is not buttery and crisp like a normal Tart crust but the taste is to die for and that proves the fact that you don’t need anything unhealthy to make a dish tasty.
Enjoy this gluten free, refined sugar free, refreshing and colourful dessert for the hot summer days.
