Berry Tart For Two

This tart is too good not to share with someone. It’s also good for you. Isn’t that the ultimate gift after all? Sharing healthy delicious things with people you care about? Maybe that’s just the dietitian in me that wants all gifts to improve your health and well-being in some way. Dietitian or not though, you absolutely need to try this.

This recipe can either be a dessert or breakfast/brunch item. I shared it with my husband one Saturday morning and he loved it. It’s refreshing and slightly sweet, also it’s loaded with antioxidants, probiotics, and protein. All these things will start your day off right. Another great thing about this recipe is that it uses Siggi’s yogurt. Siggi’s is a skyr yogurt (strained yogurt) that does not contain any artificial preservatives, thickeners, sweeteners, colors, of flavors. Basically what you see is what you get. That’s how I like my food, no hidden surprises just all natural ingredients.

I hope that I have convinced you to try out this recipe!
