Rustic mango & ginger tart (sugar-free)



- 160g (1¼ cups) flour
- 1 tbsp xylitol or granulated sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 110g (1 stick) cold butter, cubed
- 1/4 cup cold buttermilk or yogurt


- 1 medium-ripe mango
- 1-2 tbsp peach jam (sugar-free, if needed)
- 1/2 tsp freshly grated ginger
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1. To make the crust, combine the flour, salt, sugar and butter in one bowl. Rub the butter with your fingers to create a sand-ish consistency. Add the buttermilk or yogurt and knead until you have a smooth ball of dough. Form it into a flat disc and refrigerate for at least 1,5 hour (or overnight).

2. Cut the mango into thin wedges and mix with peach jam, cinnamon and ginger. 

3. Remove the dough from the fridge and roll up on the parchment paper. Arrange the fruits on the crust, fold the edges and place in the freezer for couple minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400F/200C.

4. Once your oven is ready, take out the chilled tart and brush the crust with the egg wash or milk. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden-brown.

6. Serve while still warm, with vanilla ice cream or sweetened yogurt.
