Berry Greek Yogurt Tart

Cal Giant | July 4, 2017

Last Fourth of July my sister forgot to bring the blueberry pie. As you can imagine, it was a complete disaster! This year I have a ringer in case she forgets the dessert again. I found the the most amazing tart that can be created with ingredients already found in your kitchen. So easy to make, and SO stunning for a holiday cookout. Just look at all of that red, white, and blue!

What’s so great is I already have this chilling in my refrigerator. All I have to do is pull out my smooth and creamy tart and cover it with the remaining cool whip and delicious berries. I can’t wait to surprise my friends and family with this delicious greek yogurt tart covered in refreshing strawberries, blueberries and raspberries! It is the perfect quick and easy dessert for any last minute Fourth of July parties!
