This recipe is really simple, I promise. Plus, you can get the ingredients at pretty much any shop and can use whatever fresh fruit you can get your hands on/needs to be used up.
Another major bonus is that it doesn’t require any cooking and if you don’t mind a slightly crumbly base then it can be eaten straight away, woo hoo!
It would also be a great thing to bring to a party/bbq as it’s gluten free and if using a non dairy based thick yogurt then it’s suitable for those with dairy allergies too, plus by using lots of different coloured fruit it can look really pretty so is bound to impress!

Individual mini tarts
Another option if you don’t have a big tart case is to make mini versions by squishing the base mix into some bun cases then topping with the remaining ingredients, using silicon cases makes it easier to mould the bun shape as the base mix can be quite sticky
