Strawberry Yogurt Tart is a sweet, slightly tart, no-bake dessert and so perfect during Spring or Summer or whenever, as canned Strawberries are used in the filling.
Looking for a sweet, slightly tart, no-bake dessert ? I have you covered with this Strawberry Yogurt Tart which has been a family favorite for years.
We actually live in quite a confusing world ! I have noticed that more and more since I started this (mostly) food blog.
When I just started, I found that I sometimes actually enjoyed the posts more than the recipe! That is the main reason I started this blog – to interact more with other bloggers.
Ingredients and Countries !
Right, so what is confusing – Graham Crackers, huh? What is that – and it is in every second recipe. Another thing – Crescent rolls .. in a can? No way, I was lost, totally!
And what about jelly, some countries call their jam, jelly .. okay, I worked that one out. But I knew Jello is what we call jelly.
Now, only a couple of months ago, I noticed that most of our stores now carry the BRAND “Jello” which could be either jelly or instant pudding.
What is a Tennis Biscuit ?
To give you more info on the Tennis biscuits which I love to use – it is a normal sweet biscuit with Coconut and very absorbent.
Therefore when making a dessert like this Strawberry Yogurt Tart, the Tennis biscuit layer will go softer when a filling is added, but it will remain strong enough to act as a bond.
I had some questions about this and what can be used instead, but to tell the truth, I do not know what is available in other countries, therefore I can only tell you what a Tennis biscuit is.
Update: I have since tasted Graham Crackers and tested them on some of my recipes – slightly different in taste, but works just as well in place of Tennis biscuits !
To really set this Tart nicely, try to let it chill for around 4 – 5 hours. Three hours sets the Tart, but you have to be very careful when slicing and transferring to a plate.
Other than that, the Strawberry Yogurt Tart is a no-fuss, no-bake dessert which is ready to be chilled within minutes.
