No Bake Kiwi Tart

Kiwis are one of my favourite fruits. Ever since I was a kid, I have jumped at any chance to eat the fruit. It was never easily available and was also quite expensive, so literally any chance to eat it would be great. I’ve been known to pile my plate with just Kiwis (and maybe some cake) at hotel buffets. Many times. Mostly though, I used to eat them when my mom bought them as a treat or when we got to eat some fruit tarts on special occasions. This kiwi tart is super easy to make and a great way to get some yummy Kiwis into your meal.

Spiced Plum Crumble

I’ve grown up watching a lot of international cooking shows and reading books by Enid Blyton which were massively focussed on food (those picnics, dinners and delicious sounding puddings!). While I didn’t get to eat a lot of those dishes at home, I pounced on the chance to try them as I grew older, either from upcoming bakeries or while traveling. Crumble, to me, is one such iconic dish. It sounded super delicious so I made sure I tried it when I saw it on the menu at a brunch, many years ago. I loved it!

No Bake Mango Cheesecake Mousse

It’s mango season! Best time of the year 🙂 One of the only redeemable things about the summer! (Yes, I’m one of those who don’t like summer)

Mango with skin, without skin, diced, whole, in dessert, in salad, as ice cream – so many ways to devour this fruit. I personally love cold mangoes, they just taste so much better. So when I was planning a dinner for some friends recently, I knew there had to be a cold mango dessert on the menu. Not only will it taste good, it will also save me the hassle of being around a hot oven on a hot day. Win win!

I looked around for a few no bake recipes and landed on this one by Richa, which seemed super easy. I modified it a little and found myself with this glorious no bake mango cheesecake mousse! It has got to be one of the best things I’ve made!
