No Bake – Mango Lotus Tart

It’s Mango season!!!! And this tart has been on my to do list ever since. Something delicious, something creamy with a crunchy crust. The crust is prepared with my favourite Lotus biscuits that tastes so so good. These lotus biscoffs can be perfectly paired with tea or coffee, however I prefer using these in my desserts. They add an amazing cinnamon flavor and crunch to this dessert and I believed pairing lotus biscoffs with mangoes is going to be an amazing combination.

If you’re a lotus fan, this is surely a treat for you. Falling short on ingredients during these lock down days, I prepared creamy mango pudding using some cream cheese and thick cream to be filled to my Lotus Tart as I did not have whipped cream stocked up. Also, you can use any biscuits of your choice, I love lotus for my desserts hence i prefer lotus over any other biscuits.The best part about this dessert is that it’s a No Bake – Mango Lotus Tart so you need no Oven!!!

Please note:

I have not used whipped cream in this recipe and replaced with thick cream which was available.

If you wish you can use a hand whisk to whisk all ingredients for mango filling making sure you add mango puree to it.

I added 1 tsp sugar to this filling while blending

You can use any biscuits of your choice, I love lotus for my desserts hence i prefer lotus over any other biscuits.

I had some filling left, so we just ate it as pudding.
