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!

Belvita (blueberry flavor used) - 1 packet - used 2 pieces
Butter - 3/4 tsp
Heavy whipping cream - 1 cup (yields 2 cups of whipped cream)
Cream cheese - 1 + 1/4 cup (softened - at room temperature)
Confectioners sugar - 3 tablespoons
Pure vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp
Mango pulp - 1/2 cup (used only for the container cheesecake) - optional
Mango pulp - 2 tbsp
Chia seeds - 1 teaspoon (soaked in hot water)
Any fresh fruit for decoration (used Papaya and Kiwi), papaya seeds (roasted)
- Break 2 pieces of Belvita and crush it with a rolling pin or pulse it in a food processor.
- Mix in the melted butter and set it as a base in your prepared mould or pan.
- Use a cup or a spoon to press it firmly and set aside.
- Whip up the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks using a stand or hand blender.
- In a bowl, mix in the softened cream cheese along with the vanilla essence and confectioners sugar.
- Fold in gently 3/4 of the whipped cream into the above cream cheese mixture. Spoon in the cream cheese into your mould/ pan and spread evenly. Reserve the remaining cream cheese for the 2nd version.
- Add your desired toppings. I have mixed soaked and drained chia seeds and mango pulp as a textured gel top layer.
- Pipe in additional whipped cream and decorated with fresh papaya, kiwi and sprinkle few papaya seeds. Refrigerate covered for 1-2 hours to set firm.
- Set on the plate you desire to serve in and remove the elastic and the cling wrap. Run a knife along the sides to release from the mould easily. Gently remove the mould and serve immediately.
- Pour 1 tsp of mango pulp into your container to create layers of colors.
- Fold in about 1/2 cup of mango pulp along with the remaining cheesecake and fill in 3/4 of your containers only.
- Repeat above step 5 for topping decorations.
- 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.
