With winter seasonal produce at all time high, it’s about time we make some desserts with fresh winter citrus. If you are like me, after all the chocolate overload from Valentine’s Day, you are looking forward to lighter, fresh sweets for indulging. Look no further because this grapefruit mousse tart will satisfy that. It is a lighter greek yogurt mousse with a lot of fresh fruit in the mousse and topping which happens to sit on top a gluten free coconut crust. You’ll be happy about this indulgent tart.
Let’s walk through this tart and the different parts that make it a delight. First, the crust is a coconut-almond crust that uses almond meal flour, coconut flakes and coconut oil for moisture. It’s baked perfectly to give you a chewy, gluten-free tart crust. And that is all the baking there is for this recipe. it is an almost no-bake recipe and can easily be made ahead of time for a dinner party.
I love using seasonal fruit in my baking as it is always a great way to add more flavors into your baked good. For the filling of this tart, I added lots of fresh grapefruit into a refreshing yogurt mousse. To make the mousse slightly lighter, I used Greek yogurt instead of cream cheese to fold into the whipped heavy cream. This adds a slight tart flavor to the airy mousse and I love that. It reminds me of this greek yogurt cheesecake except it is lighter and refreshing. Top all of it with more fresh grapefruit and every bite will be filled with crunchy coconut crust and sweet citrus of grapefruit.
