Healthy No-Bake Coconut Lime Tarts with Fruit and Yogurt
Aren’t these healthy tarts the cutest?!
They were so easy to make it’s borderline ridiculous. Seriously!
A full pulses in the food processor, a little dollop of Greek yogurt, some fresh fruit and BAM! Super impressive deliciousness perfect for a little every day fanciness or for some seriously speedy Summer entertaining!
Serving a crowd?
I used mini tart pans, but you can also mold these into muffin tins or even mini muffin tins to make bite-sized party treats! WOOT!
Because the parchment paper is pretty essential here, you’ll want to snag parchment paper muffin cups to help you pull these off without a hitch. They can be found at grocery stores, on amazon, and at specialty home/kitchen good stores and are a baking essential in my kitchen. I always use them for muffins!

The base of the tart makes a super tasty snack, that’s naturally vegan and tasty too! Roll it up into balls for an easy peasy energy bite that’s great on the go. Simply combine the soaked dates, coconut almonds, dried cherries, shredded coconut in a food processor with a kiss of optional maple syrup (or honey!) and roll into bite-sized balls. It’s a lot like my recipe for Key Lime Energy Bites or my Chocolate Cherry Balls, which make a fabulous little portable snack packed with fruit and nuts!
They’re especially great after dinner when you need a little something sweet but don’t want to feel like the sugar truck ran you over in the morning.
so… how was it?!
The tart’s dried fruit and almond “crust” is sweet and somewhat buttery with a delicious kiss of coconut. It’s like taking a fruit and nut bar/ball and rolling it out into a crust; soft and chewy and full of flavor. It’s a fork sort of ordeal for sure unless you go the party-bite route and make them into minis.
To my tastebuds, it’s totally a dessert type of sweet, and I love the the addition of tart-and-tangy Greek yogurt and juicy fresh fruit to the mix. You could go with a sweeter yogurt option but I feel like plain Greek yogurt is the perfect topping!
The coconut almond base can be made in advance (wrap it tightly and it’ll keep a few days in the fridge) and can also be pressed into mini tart/tartlet molds. I used 4.75 inch tart pans which are great for more intimate entertaining, like brunch with friends or a small dinner party.
For even more lime flavor, you can even grate a little lime zest into the coconut-almond-date mixture. Bam!
Spring is coming and I will definitely make these in my mini muffin pans, and with dried figs as I do not like dates. Regarding all your recipes in this blog……which one to make after these delicious bites??? Thank you.
This tart looks yummy. Will give it a try.
Thank you! 🙂
Adding 250gms ofmaple syrup to this recipe increases the taste of the dish. Last week I tried your Crab Stuffed Mushrooms recipe, and as I was unable to post my review there and so I am doing it here. The recipe turned out great (no surprise there!) but the only change I would make is that I would lightly toast the crab in ghee before adding it to the milk. It adds a wholesome flavour. Other than that you are wonderful and I am grateful that I found this delicious recipes 🙂
Thank you Vaniel! Love the addition of the extra maple syrup and toasting the crab in the mushroom recipe sounds divine, good call! I’m thrilled you’ve enjoyed the recipes you have tried so far and can’t wait to hear what else you make! Thanks for the link 🙂 xo
Ugh, this is genius! I would love one of these tarts for breakfast 🙂
Come on over for brunch! <3
I just love that these tarts are no bake! That crust looks AMAZING!
This has been in my feed all, and every time I see it I start drooling!! That coconut and lime sounds amazing, and the fruit makes it so pretty!
Haha it’s trying to tell you to make it 😉
So darn pretty!! Can I have them all to myself?! 😀
Haha you may have to fight people off!
Love the freshness of this recipe and it’s perfect for the Memorial Day get together.
Thanks Celeste 🙂
These are gorgeous! I am all about no-bake desserts for summer!

I love these! You made them look beautiful!
These look delicious! And perfect for summer since they are no bake and can be topped with all the fresh berries available! I think my kids (and I) would love these!
Thanks Melissa! Hope y’all get a chance to try them – my toddler was obsessed!
No bake dessert recipes are the best, and this one is perfect for summer entertaining!
Thanks so much Lori! <3
I’m hungry looking at these no bake fruit yogurt tarts! Simply Delicious!
Thanks Priya! 🙂
Yes these are the cutest!! I looove the lime coconut combo and how versatile the recipe is. Going to dust off my mini tart pans and make some tonight 🙂
Thanks Brie!!! Hope you absolutely adore them! <3
This is my kind of dessert. I love a fruit tart and you made it even better with the addition of coconut almonds. What a fabulous crust.
Thanks Christie! Coconut almonds make everything better 😉
These tarts have the loveliest ingredients. I like that they stand out from the standard pastry crusts. Coconut almonds and dates sound delicious and so much healthier for you. No guilt eating this dessert. Yum.
Thanks so much Ali! I’m really digging the coconut-date combo with the tart yogurt and fresh fruit… it’s such a good mix of everything!
What an utterly beautiful dessert this is – and so good for you. I’ve over indulged over the last week and really should try this instead of the naughtiness I have planned in cupcake form tonight lol 😉
I vote you do both and it’ll balance out mighty nicely 🙂 Thanks Jo!
These look so fresh and yummy! 🙂
Thanks Rachel! <3
