Super easy family dessert!
By: Jodie Shield, RD
One way to serve a light and healthy dessert to your family is to offer smaller portions. These single-serve tarts are the perfect portion size for a cool dessert on a warm night. I used raspberries, but strawberries or blueberries work well too. Go ahead and make them tonight for your family regardless of the temperature outside. What berries are you going to use?
makes 8 servings
8 pre-made mini graham cracker pie shells
8 oz fat-free cream cheese
4 oz tub-style light cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For peach glaze
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp corn starch
3/4 cup peach nectar
For fruit topping
2 kiwifruit, peeled and thinly sliced
1 peach, peeled, pitted, and thinly sliced
1 6-oz basket fresh raspberries
- In a small bowl, beat together the fat-free and light cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Spread the mixture evenly into each graham cracker pie shell. Chill.
- In a small saucepan, stir together the granulated sugar and cornstarch. Then stir in the peach nectar. Cook, and stir for one more minute. Remove from heat, and let cool for at least five minutes.
- Using a clean pastry brush, apply a thin layer of glaze over the cream cheese filling. Add a slice of kiwifruit and peach, then apply another thin layer of glaze. Top with fresh raspberries and a dab of glaze. Keep chilled in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
