Superfood Tartlet with Turmeric, Ginger, Mango, and Fresh Coconut Meat Frosting

 

Mangoes are in season over here right now, so I felt I had to do something with them. And since we drink at least one fresh young coconut a day, we have tons of fresh coconut flesh too.

Just by looking at the fresh ingredients, a tropical superfood tartlet sprang to mind… so that’s what I made! Living in the tropics and being spoiled by the abundance of fresh turmeric and ginger, I couldn’t resist adding these superfoods too.

 

Superfood Tartlet Ingredients (makes 6 to 8 tartlets)

 

 

For the superfood crust

 

For the frosting

  • 1 cup fresh coconut meat mixed with a little bit water (see picture)
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 large mango, peeled and pitted
  • 1-2 tsp fresh grated turmeric, or to taste
  • 1-2 tsp fresh grated ginger, or to taste
  • ½ lime, juice only
