I love creating recipes that are healthy, tasty and most importantly pretty. :) But can French-style patisserie be easily made in minutes, look pretty, and easy on the waistline?
This Skinny No-Bake Raspberry Tart is our answer! It is tangy, sweet, fluffy goodness with a power crunch from the cookie base! To the eye, it looks awfully sinful, but try a spoonful and you'll know this is one truly rare guilt-free treat. I'd often get that speechless, wide eyed "OH-MY-GOD" expression from my guests on their first bite. They were probably expecting to bite into it like a cheesecake, but got a pleasant surprise when it turned out tangy, sweet, fluffy like a dream cloud!
How did we do that? By cutting back on fat, heavy ingredients like butter and sugar, and replacing them with creamy fruit yoghurt. This made it light as a dream and an easier lighter way to get your sweet tooth fix! And we didn't forget the fruit!
This recipe takes only 10mins to put together, and if word gets out that this pie would be making an appearance at your party, expect that it'll disappear from your buffet table just as fast!
Store bought Graham cracker pie crust

To make the filling, whip the cream, sugar, yoghurt and vanilla until soft peaks form.
Spoon the light, fluffy mixture into tart crust. See how it looks like a frothy cloud?

Just before serving, carefully place raspberries on tart and dust with icing sugar. Serve in small wedges.
