Thanks to our sweet friends at Driscoll’s for sponsoring today’s post. You guys. Berry season is finally here! 🙌
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, Trevor here with a little SMTY Takeover. Why you ask? Well, with Mother’s Day coming up, Teddy and I wanted to do something extra special for Jennifer. That’s where this absolutely delicious, so easy even Teddy could help, Healthy Fruit Tarts Recipe comes in.
Obviously Teddy couldn’t actually help make them, but as you’ll see below he’s a heckuva delivery man 🙂
These ARE perfect for any human kids that want to help make mom something special that looks and tastes amazing!
Wanna see how easy? Check out this video and you’ll see in sixty seconds.
I don’t know about you guys, but Mother’s Day was always a favorite for my brother and I growing up. We’d sneak downstairs with our dad and whip up a gourmet breakfast. I mean, we’re talkin pancakes, eggs AND orange juice… so, it was a pretty big deal!
If things really got out of hand, there may or may not have been a link or two of sausage involved.
We’d then lay everything out on a tray, that I believe was only ever used on Mother’s day, and deliver our masterpiece to our mom waiting patiently upstairs.
So, with Mother’s Day coming up, I wanted to pass the tradition on to Teddy.
We sat down and brainstormed what to make. After what turned out to be a pretty exhausting discussion about how Mom most likely wouldn’t be thrilled with a bone for breakfast, we settled on a few guidelines:
1.) It had to be easy
2.) It had to be healthy
3.) It had to be seasonal
4.) And… it had to be something that kids could help with if they wanted to.
We may or may not have given those guidelines to Jennifer to develop a recipe 😉 … but what really matters is…
Enter, Healthy Fruit Tarts.
Four ingredients for the crust: cashews, raisins, vanilla (+ salt, but that hardly counts). Vanilla honey greek yogurt as the filling. And the freshest, most beautiful Driscoll’s Raspberries you’ve ever seen.
Easy, healthy, seasonal, kid friendly… check, check, check, check!
Pulsing the cashews, raisins, salt and vanilla in a food processor gives you the crust. Everything from here, is totally kid friendly and fun!
Press the crust into mini tarts, freeze the crust for about thirty minutes so it firms up, and fill it with honey vanilla greek yogurt.
The best part.
Heap on fresh Driscoll’s Raspberries, a sprinkle of powdered sugar, and if you want to get really fancy, top it off with a couple leaves of mint.
BOOM! You’ve got yourself a breakfast fit for a queen. Or heck, this is even great as a dessert!
Now all that’s left is the all important delivery. Throw it on a tray, plate, whatever you have, it won’t matter.
Follow Teddy’s lead and give your Mom a kiss.
Wish her a happy Mother’s Day.
Then grab one of those Healthy Fruit Tarts for yourself!
