Servings 8



  • 300 gm flour plain
  • 150 gm nutelex dairy free butter/ margarine
  • 30 gm icing sugar pure | 3 tablespoons
  • 20 ml coconut cream Kara thickened coconut cream

Lemon "curd" filling

  • 250 ml lemon Juice
  • 400 ml coconut cream Kara thickened coconut
  • 160 gm caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 60 ml water cold | 3 Tablespoons
  • 40 gm cornflour 4 Tablespoons
  • 2 whole mangoes cut into chunks
  • 170 ml passionfruit in syrup


  • Preheat the oven 180 C / 350 F. You'll need a 23 cm | 10 inch tart case with a removable base
  • Put the flour, icing sugar, and chilled "butter" into a flood processor and blitz till it looks like sticky breadcrumbs.
  • Add the coconut cream and blitz till the dough comes together in a ball. Pour out onto a bench and knead lightly together. Press into a disc, wrap and chill for 20 minutes.
  • Flour a bench and roll out the pastry as thin as possible, repairing well if cracks appear. Trim the top. Chill again till firm- about 15 minutes.
  • Use a piece of baking paper to line the pastry case and add baking beans or rice. Bake for 15 minutes and then remove the beans and bake a further 15 minutes or until lightly golden. Set aside
  • Pour the lemon juice, coconut cream, sugar, zest, vanilla and turmeric into a pot and put over a medium heat. Meanwhile mix the cornflour and water. When the juice comes up to a boil whisk in the cornflour and beat till thick and bubbling. Take off the heat and strain out the lemon zest.
  • Pour the lemon curd into the tart case and flatten off the top. Chill the tart till set or at least 3 hours till firm. Decorate the tart with mango and passionfruit syrup. Serve with whipped coconut cream.


Zest the lemons before juicing them. Don't skip the zest in this recipe it adds a deep lemon flavour that you wont get otherwise.
