Crust Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp sugar

Filling Ingredients

  • 170g cream cheese
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp milk
  • 1 tsp freshly grated lemon zest
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 firm kiwifruit, peeled and sliced 1/2 cm thick


  1. Heat oven to 180°C and grease an approx. 22 cm tart pan.
  2. In a bowl, combine the almond flour, butter, and sugar, until it is able to be compressed into a crust. Add a little more butter if the dough is not combining.
  3. Press the crust into the tart pan and bake for 15-20 minutes until it is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
  4. Meanwhile, in another bowl combine the cream cheese, sugar, milk, lemon zest, and vanilla until smooth. Set aside.
  5. When crust is cool, spread cream cheese mixture evenly on top of the crust.
  6. Place sliced kiwifruit on top of the filling in any pattern. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour (the longer the better) before serving.
