one of my awesome friends - mat is a fabulous cook and the dessert king. naturally he was my go to person for a recipe for my christmas dessert.
the lovely veronica loves archie requested the recipe so here it is...
(adapted from taste.com)
frozen mango and lime cheesecake
125g plain sweet biscuits (i used a gluten free coconut biscuit)
60g butter, melted
2 x 250g packets of light cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup caster sugar (or finely ground rapidura)
zest of one lime
300ml light cream
2 mangoes - sliced
3 passionfruit - halved
grease round spring form pan, line the base and sides with baking paper.
place the biscuits in a food processor and process until finely chopped, move to a bowl and add the melted butter and mix to combine. press the biscuit mixture evenly over the base of the lined pan. place in the fridge while making the filling. (i doubled the base mixture)
using an electric beater, beat the cream cheese until smooth. add the sugar and lime zest and beat for a further few minutes. add the cream and beat for another 5 minutes or until the mixture is thick and smooth. chop the mangoes up and add half of the flesh to a food processor and mix until smooth. fold the mango into the cream cheese mixture with the remainder of the chopped mango.
spoon the cream cheese mixture over the biscuit base and cover with cling wrap and if you can place a rubber band over the cling wrap and place the cheesecake in the freezer overnight or until set.
remove the cheesecake from the freezer 15 minutes before serving. top with the passionfruit pulp and enjoy.
