Lime and Passionfruit Tart

Lime and Passionfruit Tart

Vegan cheesecakes have to be one of the best plant-based desserts going around. The combination of nuts and coconut yogurt creates such a delicious creamy texture, much like that of a traditional cheesecake. The passionfruit juice in this recipe adds such a great flavour as well as natural sweetness, the perfect balance to the zesty lime. We’ve also created a passionfruit glaze using agar agar - a plant-based gelatin alternative. So easy and so delicious!
