Mini Yogurt Fruit Tart RecipeRecipe By: Recipes to Nourish Mini Yogurt Fruit Tarts are a fun little bite for special occasions and brunches. These healthy, grain-free tarts are topped with protein-rich Greek yogurt and fresh berries, nestled on a homemade pistachio crust.
- 1 cup Pistachios, shelled
- 4 Medjool dates, pitted
- 1 Tbsp. Sprouts Brand Cocoa or cacao powder
- 1 Tbsp. Sprouts Brand Butter, melted (can also use melted ghee or avocado oil)
- 3/4–1 cup Greek yogurt

- 4 Tbsp. Organic apricot preserves (optional)
- Place Medjool dates in a small bowl and cover with warm water to soak and soften for about 30 minutes.

- Place pistachios, soaked and drained Medjool dates, cocoa powder and healthy fat of choice in a food processor.
- Pulse about 3–5 times, just until combined (do not over mix it or it will turn into pistachio butter).

- Using clean hands, press the mixture down into each muffin cup, forming a mini crust that covers the bottom and comes up the edges about 1/2 inch.
- Bake at 350°F for 7–8 minutes.
- Allow the mini tarts to cool completely in the muffin pan, about 30 minutes, before gently removing the mini tart crusts (do not attempt to remove them until they are completely cool or they will break).
- Top each mini tart with about 1 tablespoon of yogurt. Add 1 teaspoon of the optional apricot preserves on top of the yogurt.
- Top with each mini tart with fresh berries.
- Serve immediately.
