Method

  1. Step 1

    Line a large sieve with muslin or a clean Chux. Place over a large bowl. Combine the yoghurt, honey and vanilla in a bowl. Spoon the yoghurt mixture into lined sieve. Place in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight to drain.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, to make the muesli tart case, preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 20cm (base measurement) fluted tart tin with removable base. Place on a baking tray. Combine the oats, muesli, coconut, pepitas and sunflower seeds in a large bowl. Add the coconut oil, maple syrup and honey and stir until well combined. Spoon into prepared pan. Use the back of a spoon to spread and press the mixture evenly over the base and side of the pan. Bake for 25-30 mins or until golden brown. Set aside to cool completely.
  3. Step 3

    Place the chopped strawberries in a blender and blend until smooth. Transfer drained yoghurt mixture to a clean bowl, discarding excess liquid. Add half the strawberry mixture and use a spoon to gently marble. Spoon mixture into tart case. Drizzle with remaining strawberry mixture. Top with extra strawberries and pistachio. Serve immediately.

Better-for-you strawberry tart recipe

There are two big bonuses to this strawberry tart recipe. Not only is it a healthier twist on a classic strawberry tart, but it can be prepared a day ahead and assembled very quickly just prior to serving. This makes it a great option for a family lunch or dinner party.

In a classic fruit tart recipe, a tart tin is lined with a sweet, buttery pastry known as pâte sucrée. This is blind baked in an oven and, once cool, is filled with a crème pâtissière, also known as pastry cream, before being topped with fruit and possibly even some kind of glaze.

This recipe is a healthier twist on this, with strained yoghurt sweetened with honey and pureed strawberries used in place of the pastry cream, and a muesli-inspired base.

Strawberry tarts: recipe tips and tricks

When baking the healthy tart base, if the top edges are starting to burn a little, but the centre needs longer, cover it with a round of baking paper for the remainder of the cooking time. You can drop the oven temperature by 5-10ºC if needed, too.

An extra step worth considering when making this healthy strawberry tart is to strain the fruit puree to remove those tiny seeds. Simply pour the fruit puree into a fine mesh strainer with a bowl underneath to catch the seed-free puree.

Strawberry tarts, with a twist!

If strawberries aren’t in season, consider using a different type of fruit for this healthy tart recipe. Raspberries and blueberries are a good alternative. Or puree some stewed peaches or apricots to swirl through the yoghurt, then top the filled healthy tart with some of the fresh fruit, thinly sliced.

In this healthy strawberry tart recipe, chia seeds, dates and almonds are used in the base, topped with a yoghurt and ricotta mix, strawberries and a sprinkle of mint sugar.
