Lemon and Blueberry Tarts - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff to know in the blurb!

We’ve used filo pastry in these Lemon and Blueberry Tarts to to give them a really nice crisp, crunch while keeping the calories and fat low.

Lemon and blueberries is such a classic flavour pairing and the combination is both refreshing and indulgent. The lemon juice adds a nice hint of tanginess to the creamy blueberry curd in these tarts and makes them super moreish!

These Lemon and Blueberry Tarts are best enjoyed soon after filling, as the curd can start to make the filo a little soggy if they’re left out for too long. If you want to make these ahead of time, then simply store the filo and curd separately and fill just before serving!
