Try making this no-bake dessert is perfect for a special occasion like Mother’s Day, holiday parties, Easter or summer reunions. One of my in-laws is a mango-lover and always asks me for this dessert.
On the outside, it’s a French-style charlotte cake made with ladyfingers, the same kind used for tiramisu. They’re ideal because a traditional graham cracker crust doesn’t go well with mangos.
Inside it’s a creamy cheesecake filling with chunks of fresh mango. And on top, there’s a homemade jello mango glaze to hold it all together. So it’s not exactly diet food, but for a festive touch at a party, you can’t go wrong. Are we drooling yet?
HOW TO MAKE MANGO CHEESECAKE
To make it, you need to buy ladyfingers from the grocery store. It doesn’t matter what shape or size they are. Dip them in some liquid such as mango juice diluted with water, and line them along the inside edge and bottom of a 9-10 inch springform pan.
Then make some cheesecake filling with chunks of ripe mango added in. You can buy chunks of fresh mango at many supermarkets, or peel and dice them yourself. Frozen mango will work fine too.
Once the filling is in then put the cake int he fridge to chill while you make the jello glaze. It’s just leftover mango juice, unflavored gelatin or agar agar, some liqueur of choice (optional) and water.
Once it’s cool, pour over the back of a spoon to dribble onto the mango cheesecake filling:
Make sure you keep this dessert chilled until serving, and use a sharp knife to cut through the cheesecake. It’s generally best to serve on the bottom of the springform pan, as it can be difficult to move it off.
