This dessert lets you have your “cake” and fresh fruit too…
Here’s a refreshing Watermelon Tart
that's low in sugar but will satisfy that sweet tooth.
Although it looks like it’s loaded with calories, this tart is actually made from, well, as the name says … watermelon slices lathered with low-fat vanilla yogurt and berries.
This impressive dessert will not heat up your house with a hot oven -- no baking here. The “crust” in the tart is made from rolling each yogurt-covered slice in toasted almonds for a nutty crunch.
Start off by cutting your watermelon into pie-shaped slices to form a tart. For those of you who are not watermelon aficionados, here’s a little tutorial of how I cut mine.
Now, you don’t need the whole watermelon--just about a quarter of it, but I’m sure the rest will disappear quickly.
Next, take each piece and dip the curved outer edge in yogurt then in toasted almonds.
Frost the top of the tart with the remainder of the yogurt and decorate with fresh sliced strawberries and blueberries.
They say you eat with your eyes first, and this tart looks like a lusciously decorated cake. But you won’t be disappointed because this time of year, the natural sweetness of the watermelon and berries with the refreshing yogurt is a treat in itself!
