This rich and creamy Philadelphia mango cheesecake is so easy to make and tastes delicious too. Who doesn’t love a slice of cheesecake? We certainly love this one, made using juicy mango, oaty biscuits and Philadelphia and it’s ready in just half an hour – perfect. The sweet mango works wonders with the creamy, cheese filling. The crumbled oat biscuit base is delicious too but if you’d rather use another type of biscuit – say for example Digestives go for it! You could even take it to the next level and opt for a chocolate biscuit base instead. You can store this cheesecake in the fridge for up to 2 days. Serve with fresh cream for the best finish.

Ingredients

  • 150g oaty biscuits, crushed
  • 40g butter, melted
  • 425g can mango slices in light syrup
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 275g white chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 300g Original Philadelphia
  • 150ml double cream, lightly whipped

Method

  • Stir the biscuit crumbs into the melted butter until coated and press into the base of a 19-20cm loose bottomed cake tin or springform tin.

  • Drain the mango slices from their syrup and puree the fruit in a liquidiser or food processor with the lime zest and juice.

  • Melt the chocolate by placing it in a basin over gently simmering hot water.

  • Whisk the Philadelphia until soft then whisk in the cream and chocolate. Fold about half the mango puree into the Philadelphia cream and spoon over the prepared base.

  • Swirl the remaining mango puree on to the surface of the cheesecake to give an attractive pattern.

  • Chill for at least three hours before serving to allow the cheesecake to set.
