Apricot Passionfruit Custard Tartlets are a great idea if you’re stuck for a delicious Christmas treat. They’re easy, quick, delicious and perfect to share with your family this Christmas.

Apricots are a great source of antioxidants including beta carotene, and vitamins A, C, and E. What’s more, they’re high in a group of polyphenol antioxidants called flavonoids, which have been shown to protect against illness, including diabetes and heart disease.

Passionfruit is rich in Vitamin C, beta-cryptoxanthin and alpha-carotene that boosts your immunity. It also has iron which increases haemoglobin in our red blood cells. The rich content of riboflavin (Vitamin B6) and niacin (Vitamin B3) in passionfruit helps in regulating the thyroid activity in our body.

Apricot Passionfruit Custard Tartlets will be a winner in every family at Christmas or any other time of the year.
