Chocolate And Coconut Base

  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate
  • 3 cups sweetened shredded coconut


  • 2 blocks cream cheese
  • 6 limes
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 drop green food gel
  • 1 drop yellow food gel


Chocolate And Coconut Base

  • Preheat your oven to 165°C / 325°F.
  • Add the chocolate and butter into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 20 seconds at a time, stirring each time until smooth.
  • Add the coconut into a large mixing bowl. Pour the melted chocolate mixture and use a spatula to mix until the coconut is evenly coated.
  • Transfer the coconut mixture into a 2-inch deep 9-inch round tart tin with removable lid and use the back of a spoon to press firmly against the edges and bottom, making sure it’s evenly distributed. Bake for 15 minutes. Take out of the oven and allow to cool.

Lime Cheesecake

  • While the tart base is cooling, begin making the cheesecake mixture by adding the cream cheese and lime juice into a large microwave safe bowl. Mix on low speed to begin with, then up to medium high until mixture is smooth and evenly mixed.
  • Next, add the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and (optional) the food gels. Mix on high speed until well combined.
  • Pour the mixture into your cooled tart base and chill in the fridge for 2 hours. Garnish with slices of limes and lime zest before serving.
