Creamy kiwi curd topped with fluffy meringue and a flaky pie crust. Kiwi curd meringue pie makes a delicious, refreshing summer dessert!
A while ago, I made homemade kiwi curd – it was so delicious! So I thought I’d make it again as filling for meringue pie or rather tartlets because I wanted to try out different vegan pie crust recipes. Below you’ll find recipes for a buttery pie crust and 10 vegan pie crusts – aquafaba pie crust is my favorite! Let me know in the comments what’s your favorite pie crust.
Why’s the kiwi filling yellow? Kiwis turn yellow while cooking so the kiwi curd filling is rather yellow than green unless you add green food coloring.
