Makes 6


  • 3 sheets frozen shortcrust pastry, thawed
  • 300g fresh blueberries or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean, split, seeds scraped
  • 1 tsp arrowroot
  • 1/2 cup (140g) thick Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) thickened cream, lightly whipped


  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Grease six 10cm loose-bottomed tart pans. Cut out 6 rounds from pastry and use to line pans. Chill for 15 minutes.
  2. Prick pastry with a fork, then line with baking paper and fill with pastry weights or uncooked rice. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove weights and paper and bake for a further 3-4 minutes until pastry is golden and crisp. Cool completely.
  3. Meanwhile, place berries, sugar, vanilla pod and seeds in a saucepan with 1/4 cup (60ml) water over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Cook for 2-3 minutes until berries start to break down. Mix arrowroot with 1-2 tablespoons water until smooth, then add to berries, stirring for 1-2 minutes until slightly thickened. Set aside to cool.
  4. Fold yoghurt and honey through cream, then divide among tart cases. Top with berry coulis and serve.
