Strawberry & Chocolate Tart

Tonight's dessert was strawberry & chocolate tart, and omg, soo yummy.

Here is the recipe for anyone else wanting to try it.

Strawberry & Chocolate Tart

1 x 170g sheet reduced-fat shortcrust pastry
1 x 150g tubs Nestle diet Strawberry Yoghurt
1 egg yolk
3 tsp cornflour
30g dark chocolate, melted
250g strawberries, quarted

1. Preheat oven to 180C or 160C fan-forced. Lightly spray four 3/4-cup (185ml) muffin tin holes with oil. Cut four 10cm circles from pastry, discarding trimmings. Gently press pastry circles into prepared muffin tin holes (the pastry will only come half way up the sides of tin holes).

2. Place yoghurt in a medium bowl. Whisk in egg yolk and cornflour. Divide mixture among pastry cases, then bake for 20 minutes or until pastry is golden and crisp and filling has set. Cool tarts in muffin tin for 5 minutes, then remove and place on wire rack to cool further.

3. Using a teaspoon, drizzle chocolate in a zigzag pattern over tarts. Serve tarts immediately with fresh strawberries.

Greek Yoghurt Parfait


If you don’t have fresh strawberries, other fresh berries
work well. And if fresh berries are out of season, dried
berries will work, but use only 2 tablespoons.

1/4 cup sliced fresh strawberries
2 tablespoons low-fat muesli
3/4 cup fat-free Greek-style yogurt or low-fat vanilla yoghurt

Combine the strawberries and granola in a small mixing
bowl and stir. Spoon half of the mixture into a serving
bowl or parfait glass. Spoon the yogurt over the
granola mixture. Sprinkle the remaining strawberry-granola mixture on top.
