Fruit tarts are something special. In a relatively small, round dessert, you get a trifecta of flavors and textures. It starts with the crunchy crust and builds up to a tangy-cream center before topping off with fresh, sweet – and sometimes glazed – chunks of fruit. Slices of bright-colored kiwi and strawberries are so delicately arranged that these tartlets are almost too pretty to eat – but there’s no doubt you will.  

Healthy Fruit Tart Recipe


½ cup almond flour
1/3 cup oat flour (or ground oats)
1 Tbsp. raw honey
1 Tbsp. ghee, melted
1 Tbsp. almond milk


½ Tbsp. corn starch
1 Tbsp. powdered stevia
2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
2 egg yolks

Cream cheese frosting

4 oz. Neufchatel cheese
½ cup low-fat cottage cheese
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
¼ cup almond milk
¼ cup walnuts, crushed (optional)


1 kiwi, sliced
½ cup fresh strawberries, sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and coat tart cups with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all crust ingredients, adding milk slowly. A little moisture will go a long way. You just need enough to make ingredients stick together without being crumbly.
  3. Press crust mixture into prepared tart cups and bake for 8 minutes, or until golden. Set aside to cool.
  4. In a saucepan, combine all custard ingredients. Stir well.
  5. Turn heat to medium and continue to stir until mixture thickens, about 4 minutes for the egg yolks to cook. Keep mixing to avoid clumping.
  6. Pour custard into cooled crusts. Place in refrigerator to allow custard to set.
  7. To prepare cream cheese frosting, combine all frosting ingredients in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  8. Spoon a layer of frosting onto each tart. Top with fruit slices, arranging them in a pinwheel to look pretty.
  9. Eat and fall in love!
