Bake Along #78 No Bake Mango Cheesecake

This gonna be my last cheesecake contribution for Bake Along 4th birthday, happened to be the last day of submission too LOL
No bake cheesecake is a yummy refreshing dessert I love. DH loves this too over the baked version, even though his number 1 preference is still Japanese cheesecake :)


Argh! I always made a mess of the base crust :)


Recipe is from Cynthia from The Baking Biatch

What you need:

Base:
180g digestive biscuits (or marie biscuits)
80g melted unsalted butter

Cheesecake:
250g cream cheese (I used light cream cheese), room temperature
75g castor sugar
250g mango yoghurt
100g water
2.5tbsp gelatin powder
100g fresh mango cubes

Jelly topping:
125g mango puree from fresh mango
125g water
25g castor sugar
1 tsp gelatin

Method:
  1. Cut biscuits into small pieces and pulse in food processor til formed crumbs. Add in melted butter and pulse 1-2 times til well combined. Press the crumbs into a round spring form pan (I used 20cm) and refrigerate
  2. Prepare the cheesecake by mixing water and gelatin, stirring well before warming it up in microwave for about 15secs (til just warm)
  3. In a bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar over low speed til mixed and creamy. Add in cooled gelatin mixture and mix well. Add in yoghurt, and mix well
  4. Add in mango cubes and fold into the batter
  5. Pour onto the pan over the crust and keep in the freezer for about 2hours
  6. Prepare jelly topping by mixing all ingredients in a small pot over medium fire and bring to boil, stir continuously. Pour over the cheesecake in the pan, put back in the freezer for about 30mins or so
  7. Remove cheesecake from freezer. Using the back of a paring knife, run through the sides of the pan. Release the spring form pan and decorate the cake as desired with fresh fruits brushed with diluted jam for extra shine (and drool LOL) (I skipped this part as I am a lazy cake decorator haha)
