How to make mango and passion fruit tart

Make the base

Firstly, preheat your oven to 180°C (160°C for fan ovens). Now, take the ginger biscuits and put them into a blender. Blitz them until they’ve crumbled nicely. 

Then, pour the melted vegan butter into the blender, combining well with the biscuit crumbs. Once done, spoon the mixture into the pie dish and press it to create an even base. 

Subsequently, place the dish in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Once done, let it cool in the fridge until solid.

Prepare the mango mousse

While your base is cooling, prepare the mango mousse for the tart filling. To begin with, soften the coconut block in a microwave or pan. Next, add the mousse ingredients into a blender and blend until the mixture is smooth. Then, pour this mousse onto your now-cooled biscuit base. It will need some time to set – around 4 hours should do the trick. 

Create the passion fruit sauce

Mix the cornflour and water in a cup and set it aside. Afterwards, add the passion fruit pulp, orange juice, and sugar into a pan and use medium heat. Mix it the ingredients regularly with a mixing spoon.

Once the sugar has dissolved, stir in the cornflour mixture. Keep whisking the sauce until it starts to thicken. Let it simmer for a couple of minutes and then turn off the heat and let it cool. Finally, spoon the sauce onto your tart.

Can a different biscuit be used for the base?

Yes, this recipe is flexible. You can substitute the ginger biscuits with any other biscuit of your choice.

Can this tart be made a day ahead?

Definitely, it tastes even better when left in the fridge overnight. However, remember to add the passion fruit sauce just before serving.

How long can I store this mango and passion fruit tart?

Basically, the tart can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Does fresh mango puree work for this tart?

Certainly, puree from fresh mangoes works well in this recipe. As a result, it’s a great dessert to make when fresh mangoes are in season.

What else can be used instead of passion fruit?

If you can’t find passion fruit, you can substitute it with other tart fruits like raspberries or citrus fruits. Ensure you have pulp for the recipe.

Is it possible to make mini tarts instead of one big tart?

Absolutely, mini tarts are a great idea for parties or portion control. Ensure you adjust the baking time appropriately because they’ll bake faster.

Can regular butter be used for the base?

Yes, if you’re not following a vegan diet, regular butter will work perfectly fine for the base of this mango and passion fruit tart.

Can toppings be added to this tart?

Yes, toppings like sliced fresh fruits can go very well with this mango and passion fruit tart – feel free to add strawberries, cherries raspberries, peaches, kiwi, blueberries, or any other fruits of your choosing.
