Yoplait Swap! Chocolate Lemon Coconut Mini Tarts!

We are all in love with dessert.  When I think about it, I sigh…..  I never want to give my dessert love up.  I’ll sacrifice other things but I’ll be damned if dessert will be one.  So here I go trying to come up with something light for the person who wants to watch their figure, but sacrifice NOTHING.  I am going to SWAP a piece of cake or chocolate mousse for these lovely little mini tarts I created today.  Yoplait Light yogurt saved me the headache of trying to create a fat free custard….  I used their thick and creamy yogurt instead.  Hope you Enjoy!

Ingredients for mini tarts:

1 1/2 – cups chocolate graham cookies

4 – tablespoons butter

1/2 – teaspoon vanilla

2 – 6 ounce  Yoplait Fat Free Thick and Creamy Lemon Meringue Yogurt

2 – tablespoons toasted coconut

2 – strawberries

This recipe will make 7 tarts. 

Preheat oven to 350 fahrenheit.

Add cookies to a food processor and pulse till the cookies become crumb dust.  Then add butter and vanilla.  Pulse again until combined.  Take a 2 inch tart pan and fill with a heaping tablespoon of cookies mixture.  Press all around and into the edges.  Then place all your tart pans on a cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes.

   

   

   

Once tart shells are baked let them cool completely.  Then scoop in lemon yogurt and top with toasted coconut and a slice of strawberry.  Place them in the fridge and whenever you get starry eyes for a dessert… there is one that will make your heart sing and your waistline won’t have to pay the price for it. :)

Do the Swap!
