Sky Flakes Crust
  • 1 Cup Crushed SkyFlakes Can sub any Saltine Cracker
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Melted Vegan Butter
  • Coconut Oil Spray
Calamansi Curd
  • 1 7oz Can Coconut Condensed Milk
  • 7oz Almond Milk use the same can to measure almond milk
  • 1/4 Cup Calamansi Juice

Instructions
Sky Flakes Crust
  1. First put the Skyflakes in the food processor and blitz until nice and sandy like.  If you don’t have a food processor you can put the crackers in a ziploc bag and just start whacking it with a wooden spoon until the crackers have been smashed to bits.

    Next add in both the coconut sugar and butter.  Turn on the food processor again and mix until it looks like sand you would make a sand castle with.  When you pinch the the crackers in between your fingers, it should stay smushed together.  If it looks a little dry, add more butter a teaspoon at a time.

    If you are using the ziplock method add in the sugar and butter in the ziplock bag and use your hands to massage the ingredients together.

Recipe Notes

Skyflakes can be replaced with any saltine cracker.

You can replace the vegan butter with regular butter and the coconut sugar for regular sugar.

Use the coconut condensed milk can to measure out the Almond Milk and you can use any milk you have on hand as well.

I have not made this curd with regular condensed milk.  You can try, but it will be much sweeter.
