Awesome Watermelon Tart

Although it looks like it’s loaded with calories, this tart is actually made from, well, as the name says … watermelon slices lathered with low-fat vanilla yogurt and berries.

This impressive dessert will not heat up your house with a hot oven — no baking here. The “crust” in the tart is made from rolling each yogurt covered slice in toasted almonds for a nutty crunch.

Watermelon Dessert Recipe

 

Start off by cutting your watermelon into pie-shaped slices to form a tart. For those of you who are not watermelon aficionados, here’s a little tutorial of how I cut mine.

How to Make a Watermelon Tart

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 (5 inch thick) slice of seedless watermelon, rind removed
  • 12 ounces Yoplait vanilla yogurt or your own choice
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup sliced strawberries

Directions

  1. Toast almonds in a skillet over medium heat for a couple of minutes or until golden. Remove from pan to cool.
  2. Cut watermelon into 8 even pie shaped wedges.
  3. Dip outside curved edge of watermelon in yogurt then in sliced almonds and place on serving platter in a pie-shaped formation. Repeat with remaining watermelon wedges.
  4. Once all of the wedges have been placed in a pie shape, use the remainder of the yogurt to frost the top of the “pie”.
  5. Place blueberries and sliced strawberries in a decorative pattern on top.
  6. Serve immediately or chill until serving.
You can also use granola, coconut, or crushed pretzels for the outer cover ….  MMMMM ! YUM !
This is also a favorite for Raw Foodists.
