Coming to "No Bake Mango Cheesecake", its deliciously mango flavored dessert that even a kid can prepare in a jiffy. Do you know that not all cheesecake requires the crust? Well, I'm not talking about traditional cheesecake. The difference between the 2 versions mentioned are the crust and the mango flavor being layered.
I used a square mold for the mini personal cheesecake. To secure and seal the bottom I used a cling wrap and an elastic to hold it in place. Mini tart container, mini springform form pan or any bowl you have handy can be an alternative to mention a few.
This easy cheesecake recipe is egg and gelatin free which holds its shape without any special setting agent. The 2 ingredients butter and confectioners sugar play the vital role to set the cake. Butter when cools condenses and holds the biscuits firm to form the crust. While the confectioners sugar along with the whipped cream firms the cheesecake as it cools in the refrigerator. It took just about an hour to set being mini sized.
Heavy whipping cream is freshly whipped to stiff peaks without any sweetner to balance with the mango pulp. It's then folded gently into the softened cream cheese to voluminous the cheesecake. Reserve some whipped cream for decoration.
A surprise element incorporated is none other than the chia seeds which replaces gelatin to create the jello topping. BTW, it's not carrots nor celery pieces (as my little ones guessed :D ) but fresh papaya and kiwi pieces adds punch of color and flavor. Popping colors, flavors and texture completes this dessert. Recreate this delish with your kid to enjoy preparing and relishing!
- Use a cling wrap to cover the dessert as you refrigerate.
- Make this dessert a day ahead but add the topping about couple of hours before serving to keep the fruits fresh.
