A Simple No Bake Fruit Tart


We returned from a morning outing at the park and made this together, Roman and I, while baby Ethan crawled backwards and performed yoga poses.  He's figuring out motion.  I've been at a loss for words lately but I'm not ready to let And Baby Cakes Three die. So I'm offering this tart which is OK to eat for breakfast, but also wears the dessert hat nicely. It seems like summer on the East Coast will be another hot one, so please make and enjoy. There's no room for feelings of guilt.

Simple No Bake Fruit Tart
Inspired by a Nigella Lawson recipe
A truly versatile tart.  Instead of yogurt you could use lemon curd or chocolate pudding, and whatever fruit strikes your fancy.

10 graham crackers
6 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
2 yogurts (I suggest whole milk yogurt. I love Liberté brand which is made with milk and cream. I used one vanilla and one coconut but you can use whatever you like.)
Mixed seasonal fruit

Pulse the crackers in a food processor. Add the melted butter and continue to pulse. Use your hands to press the crushed crackers into a 1" tart pan with removable bottom. Place the crust in the freezer for at least an hour but preferably two. Fill with yogurt and top with fruit. 


  1. Good to "hear" your voice again. I posted a similar tart a year or two ago, but your version looks beautiful and is healthier tooStill wintery here despite the date, but will be sure to make it when it gets warmer.

  2. Yes, I think it's going to be one of those summers, again. This is a very nice recipe. So simple. Elegant. Ah, summer. Back to sweating glasses of water on the kitchen table.

  3. I saw it on instagram and I had to check it out! Looks delicious! And perfect for summer!

  4. This looks just my speed, Nicole. I've lived without a food processor for so long, but lately I keep seeing new reasons (including this tart) to consider adding one to my kitchen.
