There is nothing like summer fruit! Am I right? I wait all year long for delicious fresh and sweet summer fruit and when it is here, we go through so much. We try to go blueberry and strawberry picking as much as possible because they are affordable, its the most fun thing to do and the berries taste the best. If you get a chance to get out for some berry picking, I highly recommend it.

For this recipe, I wanted it to be a little bit healthier as most of my recipes are. I used plain Greek yogurt in the cheesecake filling which worked really well! It gives it a boost of protein while lowering the fat and calories a bit. I mostly used fresh and frozen berries for this tart but either works.

I used almond flour for the crust. If you don't have almond flour, you can grind your own almonds in a food processor which works as well. This dessert is perfect for 4th of July since it is red, white and blue though I recommend eating it for more than just that occasion!

I used the Elite Deep Dish Pie Pan from Chicago Metallic which has a heavy-duty steel construction, has a nonstick coating and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. It is super affordable at just $9.99 for the pan. It uses heavy-gauge carbon steel for even baking. You can make pies, cakes or other sweet treats in it.

I've been using a Chicago Metallic baking sheet for NINE years now and it is still wonderful. Food still does not stick to it and it is my favorite baking sheet for roasting veggies and much more. I didn't even realize that it was Chicago Metallic brand until I was working with them and happened to notice it. The products are affordable yet high quality.
