Our favourite recipes involve as little money, time and dirty dishes as possible, however we’ll concede any of those, when it comes to flavour. Whole foods and nutritious power are embraced too, but every now and again, we cheat a little. That is where this one sneaks in… 5 minutes in the microwave, 4 ingredients, 2 dishes, 1 delicious treat and 0 measuring required!
One or two kids get to crush the biscuits. I rescue the bowl and shove them out the door before there are no crumbs left. Then, pour two shop-measured ingredients into a bowl and 5 minutes later, plus some cooling down time, we have a delicious tea-time treat.
I sometimes consider not letting the kids back in, but I always end up caving. One day perhaps they’ll understand. That’s what my mom used to say to me. I’d roll my eyes almost as high as my kids do today when I say the same.
The flavour possibilities are as many as there are yoghurts, but straight-forward, honest fruit yoghurt seems to work the best. The most surprising element of this tart is how only two ingredients can create such a perfect blend of texture and taste.
Do not be tempted to add gelatine, like family member of mine once insisted on doing. It really does work just the way it is!
The most time-consuming part is in crushing the biscuits, unless you have a blender of course. Lucky you. Other than faith in my mortar and pestle, I still believe in my postman. One day, he’ll deliver one of those blender-kitchen-sink combo thingys 😉
There is one last thing we’d still like to try with this recipe: lemon meringue. A good lemon meringue is so hard to come by. I’ll let you know how that turns out!
