Recipe – Vegan Citrus Tart

Citrus Tart
Citrus Tart

I went to a cafe with a work colleague after a meeting with a client. In the cafe there was a beautiful looking citrus tart.
I love citrus desserts. Obviously this one was not vegan so I decided to make one this weekend. If you like citrus desserts
like me then try this one. It is easy and delicious. The base has a custard taste which is like a shortbread texture,
and the citrus taste of lime, lemon and orange is beautiful. Enjoy !! PS I had some blueberries with it too….
