200g sweet digestive biscuits (preferably ‘Light’ digestive variant)
50g hazelnut meal
80g unsalted butter, melted
325g (1 1/2 cup) Vaalia Low Fat French Vanilla yoghurt
125g (1/2 cup) mascarpone
2 punnets mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
Mint leaves to garnish
1. For the tart base, crush biscuits in a food processor.
2. Pour into a bowl and mix in hazelnut meal. Thoroughly mix in butter. Spoon into an 11cm x 34cm rectangular tart tin with a removable base and press down evenly, including the sides, to make an even crust.
3. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until base is set.
4. To make the filling, fold yoghurt through mascarpone. Spoon the mixture into the tart and top with sliced berries and scatter a few mint leaves. Serve immediately.
For a tarter variation of this decadent dessert, replace Vaalia French Vanilla yoghurt with Vaalia Natural yoghurt.
Make the tart base up to 24 hours in advance but fill and decorate just before serving.
