Organic for Everyone

I’m passionate about organic food. Food that is grown and harvested with respect for the earth and it’s long term health is the best food. This month’s post is sponsored by a partnership with Walmart, the retailer who prides itself in being one of the world’s largest retailer of organic items.

Admittedly, it had been a while since I trolled the super center for organic produce. And I’ve been missing out. Wowzers-they’ve done an amazing job stocking their shelves with organic items! The berries I needed for my fruit tart were fresh and perfect. The selection was impressive, I was able to buy all organic ingredients for my tart and I was thrilled. And it didn’t stop in the produce aisle-organic was everywhere! I picked up some butter, ground beef and flour. Any place where I can get beer, motor oil, canning jars and organic produce under 1 roof is destined to be a fave destination. Nice work #Walmart, organic truly is for everyone when it’s accessible and affordable.

Now to get cooking-

Fab Fruit Tart 

1 round of pre-made pie crust. If you must- make your fave : )

Filling-

  • 1 quart Stonyfield  Organic Whole Milk Vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup of  organic whipping cream
  • 1/4 of organic sugar
  • 3 teaspoons of freshly squeezed organic lemon juice

Topping-

  • 1 pound of organic strawberries
  • 1 pint of organic blueberries
  • 3 organic kiwis
  • 1 large can of organic mandarin oranges
  • 1/4 cup of organic apricot preserves

Drain the yogurt overnight so the yogurt has the consistency of cream cheese. I saved the netting off a pint of berries and it was perfect for this. I lined the netting with a coffee filter and flipped the qt of yogurt into it. Secure the netting around the container so the yogurt is suspended in the empty quart.

Line a 9″ tart pan with a removable bottom with the pie crust and cook according to package directions. And don’t judge. Its Summer- I want to spend more time outside than in the kitchen : ) Cool until ready to fill.

Mix the drained yogurt with sugar, lemon juice and whipping cream until it’s a spreadable consistency. Spread the mixture into the cooled tart crust. Chill for 3 hours. Arrange fruit decoratively in concentric circles. Heat preserves with 1 tablespoon of water. Brush over the fruit to finish the tart. Enjoy ❤
