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 – 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!
