Mango Cheesecake

Do you love mangoes? I do and they are in season. We could make smoothies, dice with other fruit, or make a delicious dessert. I vote for the dessert!


I wanted to make a mango cheesecake and after reading a ton of recipes, I decided to use one recipe and then modify it based on other recipes. I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but fortunately it did.

Now, I am not a big cheesecake fan, not sure why. I can't put my finger on it, it just isn't something I drool over. However, cheesecake is one of my husband's favorite dessert. So I wanted to make it for him.

This particular cheesecake is made with lots of cream cheese, a mango puree, and some additional chopped mangoes.

I didn't get a chance to take a picture before my husband had cut out a piece. What a stinker!  The rich golden color comes from the mango puree.

I liked the idea of adding some chopped mangoes in the batter. I made the pieces small so you would not bite into a large chunk.

My husband said this is his new favorite cheesecake. I sent some to work and gave some to neighbors. Everyone loved it. It doesn't have a strong mango flavor which I think was good. I had a small piece and I enjoyed it. Even my neighbor who doesn't like cheesecake either, tried it and liked it.
