Bloggers Get Cookin' on Pinterest

When I heard that Katie from Chic in Carolina and Cathleen from Classy Cathleen were doing a link-up, I knew I had to join! The idea is that each blogger picks a recipe from their Pinterest, and makes it. This is a great idea- I pin wayyyy too many recipes (here and here), and never actually make them: until now! For this link-up, I decided to make a Greek Yogurt Fruit Tart (recipe I used here). Enjoy!


  • 15 Medjool dates
  • 1 and 1/2 cups raw unsalted cashews
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (I used vanilla, but any flavor works)
  • any fresh fruit

  • To start, soak the dates in warm water for 10 minutes. After, slice the dates in half, and remove the pit of each. In a food processor, combine the dates and cashews until it looks something like this.
    After you have made the crust of the tart, take a 9" cake pan or pie tin and spray it with non-stick spray, and apply parchment paper to the base. Once you have done that, press the mixture you just made into your pie tin.
    Next, spread your greek yogurt over the crust. Try to make it so that no crust shows through. The next step is fruit! I think that the more fruit the better! I used blueberries, strawberries, a nectarine, and a kiwi.

    This is the fun part. You can arrange the fruit in any way you would like- get creative!

    This is my finished tart: perfect for breakfast or dessert!

     I hope you guys enjoyed this! Definitely try it out- it's pretty easy!
    P.S. Don't forget to check out Katie and Cathleen's recipes on their blogs!
