Coconut mango tarts (gluten free)

August 15, 2014

Hello hello Fiesta Friday lovelies! I’ve been trying my hand at gluten free desserts again this week and seeing that the mangoes I had at home were getting super ripe, I decided that I wanted to make something mango related. But as much as I love mango pudding, I didn’t want to go the easy route. Instead, I decided that I would go super tropical this weekend and make coconut mango tarts! Even though I love using coconut oil as a fat alternative in my bakes, I’m actually not a big fan of coconut because I don’t like the texture of coconut and what something I definitely don’t like are coconut flakes! They’re just much too dry and tough for my taste but since I had some coconut flakes left over from when I made coconut chicken tenders, I figured that I might as well use the rest for this recipe…which is also why I only ended up making three. But no worries ladies, I’ll be sure to bring much more to the party than just three so we can each have one! 🙂 Now then, without further ado, here’s the yummlicious tropical coconut mango tart recipe!

Thank you so much for bringing these with you (you have made more haven’t you?!) I am sure they won’t last long with all the hungry FF hordes milling around the buffet table! Happy Fiesta Friday!
