Mini fruit tarts decorated with strawberries and blueberries.

This is my recipe for a quick and fun fruit tart that was featured in my hungry husky column in last week’s Daily Campus.

Spring Break is coming up, and for those of us wishing we were going somewhere tropical and warm, this recipe is sure to brighten your day. Today’s recipe is for a fruit tart that is super easy to make, extremely delicious, affordable and fun!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Inactive Time: 1 hour
Total time: 1 hour 10 minutes

Here’s what you’ll need:
– 1 box of vanilla pudding
Note: You can use my white chocolate tofu filling as an alternative to pudding.
– Ready made mini graham cracker pie crusts
– 2.5 cups of milk/soymilk
– Strawberries and blueberries

Start by making your pudding. This is pretty simple. In a bowl, place your pudding mix and your milk together, then mix. Pour the pudding from your bowl into the ready made mini graham cracker pie crusts. It will fill about 8 mini crusts. If you prefer, you can use one large ready made graham cracker pie crust for one fruit tart. I chose to make them mini so that one crust equals one serving. I also thought they were fun to share with friends that way.

Place your graham cracker crusts filled with pudding in the fridge to set for about an hour. When the pudding has set, take your crusts out of the fridge. Now decorate with washed and cut strawberries and washed blueberries. You can be creative and make fun designs on your tart if you like. It will taste delicious and look professional.

Plus, if you make this with soymilk like I did, you get a good variety of vitamins such as A, B-12, C and E. In addition, you get good amounts of calcium, iron and riboflavin. This is also a good source of protein. So if you’re going to have a fun, fruity dessert, dig into this easy-to-make fruit tart.
