2019, First Attempts, Healthy, No Bake

Who You Callin’ a Tart??

Summer is here. But no one’s beach body is here. So, as the resident baker, of course I get many, many requests to bake something healthy (mostly from my family). *sigh* Naturally, I gave into peer pressure.

What This Tart Is Made With:

  • No added sugars
  • No happiness/love
My super healthy date, cashew/almond, ginger, flax seed crust

This is also a no-bake recipe. So it’s a low-maintenance and quick dessert if you need something on the fly. The recipe also called for maca powder, which I didn’t have on hand, so I riskily used ground flaxseed. The crust was annoying to mold (I don’t like working with my hands where things get stuck to it constantly) but it was nothing vegetable oil spray couldn’t help with.

The recipe called for 1 cup of any flavored Greek yogurt. I used about 2-3 cups instead. Again, I can’t emphasize enough just how little effort was placed into this. The only annoying part of putting it together was molding the crust to the pan.

I used a cake spatula to get a smooth-ish finish

Now! Onto the fun part of decorating!! I used an assortment of mangoes, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries.

Voila!

Takeaways:

  • Chill with the ginger (I added too much)
  • Pick prettier fruits
  • I feel healthy

TL;DR:

No one has a beach body, so everyone’s requesting a healthy “bake”. I picked a no-bake fruit tart. I certainly didn’t feel guilty while eating it, but I could have used less ginger. This was an extremely short post because it required almost 0 level of effort.
