Eggless No Bake Mango Cheesecake

Do people change with time? I mean their habits, their beliefs, their likes and dislikes change? If you asked me this question, 10 years ago, my answer would be “I dont know about people, but I dont/wont change”. But if the same question is asked today my answer would be “yeah people do change with time and that includes me”. Though the core values and principles in which I believe still remain the same, my outlook towards life have changed quite a bit along with some of my habits, likes and dislikes.

Now coming to some of my likes, as I've mentioned a few times before I was kind of a non fruitarian (I kinda made up that word ;) ). If there were fruits somewhere in my vicinity, I refused to enter that place. But today things have changed, I'm like a part fruitarian and yes… I eat ‘some' fruits.

When I refused the mangoes offered to me, people used to give me strong stares. Some of them even went to the extend of saying “you are wasting your life by not eating mangoes, you dont know what you are missing in life!” I used to think, what's the big deal, after all its some fruit and not ‘amrit' or something. All this changed when one of our friend's gifted us a carton of mangoes from their farm. Like always, I never bothered with them. Then one day, Jose got down to it and the moment he opened the carton, the fruity smell of mangoes took over the kitchen. For the first time in my life, I loved it and at the same time I panicked, how can I ever like a fruity smell? I'm no fruit person, fruits and me cant have a relationship, it doesn't feel right. Forget about eating them, I dont even touch them! It almost felt like confessing your love to somebody after so many years of denial!

As Jose progressed with his mango venture, I became restless. when I saw him enjoying the mangoes to the core, that was the limit. I wanted to taste it, but my ego was too huge. How can I, a person who denounce fruits at any given opportunity, ask to taste the same? But I had a ray of hope. Since Jose wasnt very happy with my non fruit diet, he always tried to make me a fruit convert. So I was patiently waiting for him to ask me, but that day the question didnt come. He was busy enjoying it himself. Suddenly I thought of the “reverse tactic”. I just casually said “I really cant understand why people make all this fuss about mangoes, what's so great about it, after all it's just a fruit”, hoping that he would take my bait.

He just looked at me for sometime and then asked “do you wanna try some, it's good”? How can I give up so easily, so I decided to continue with the game for some more time… Though in the end, I did eat the mangoes, only because “he insisted that I should have them” ;) There was no stopping me after that! Later on Jose confessed that he knew from the beginning that I wanted to try it, but he was just waiting to see my course of action, so much for my “reverse tactic” plans!

So these days I've a good relationship with mangoes and I decided to take it a bit further with this cheesecake. Every relationship needs some work to keep the spark alive right? This is my attempt to keep my fruity relationship alive :) It's a perfect dessert for summer and the fact that it doesn't have any cooking and baking is like an extra brownie point! Mangoes with cheese, cream, icing sugar… sounds like a winning formula right?

Btw, you didnt tell me, whether you've changed your habits/likes/dislikes over time?

  • Hi! I’ve been meaning to try this delectable recipe but unfortunately whipping cream is out of my reach here. Will Amul fresh cream work instead?

    • Hi Anandita,

      I’ve heard people using Amul cream for desserts which calls for whipping cream, so I guess it works. I havent tried it myself though :)

      Hope you get to try it and it comes out well. All the best!!

      Cheers

    • For those in India, Brittania has a cream cheese product which is very much similar in taste to the ones abroad. I tried the cheesecake recipes with the Brittania cream cheese (in place of Philadelphia) and Amul fresh cream (in place of whipping cream) and it was yummy!

  • Thanks for your recipe. I made it and works excellent!!!! I Annex the pics of the Mango Cheesecake that I made with your delicious recipe. Thanks!!!

  • Hi Maria,

    I used agar agar in place of gelatine but the layers didn’t set properly. Being a vegetarian I can’t use gelatine.Kindly let me know the technique of using agar agar. Is there any other vegetarian geling agent which can be used in this recipe???
    I want to make it again during Easter holiday. Kindly suggest.

  • Oh! I forgot to mention that the pulp I used is kesari mango pulp bought from Indian store. I hope I bought the right pulp.

  • Hi Maria, I tried to make this cake yesterday for my husband’s birthday..but unfortunately we couldn’t the cake yesterday…..I did everything right except for the last step the mango glaze….I kept the cake in the fridge the whole night hoping that the glaze will get firm…..sadly when I checked this morning mango glaze was still thin…what do I do to make it firm….pls help

    • Hi Varsha,

      Am sorry to hear that it didnt work out perfectly :((

      I also used a similar pulp for this recipe. I think, it must be something to do with the gelatine. Did you use the exact qty mentioned and followed the procedure? Apart from that, I dont know why it didnt work out..

      Hope it comes out perfect next time, all the best!!

      Cheers

  • Hi Maria,
    Since long I am a silent reader of your site..Wants to try most of the recipes , but due to laziness have only tried some.Stuffed buns stands out from the rest. Now about the CHEESECAKE, wanted to try this since sometime and decided to make it yesterday. The real issue struck me then… cheesecake dish !! I din have CC dish or spring form pan or anything of that sort, since I do very less baking..I didn’t want to do it in a serving glass also as I wanted to have it as a slice as we get in shops.. And then aluminium foil came to the rescue!! lined my pan with the same and left out few inches around it and pulled out the cake from the pan and served it as slices..this will work if we are serving for our family members :)

    • Hi Jency,

      Thank you so much for your comment and also for sharing your tip here. I’m sure it will be helpful for other readers :)

      Your cheese cake slice looks perfect!

      Cheers

  • Hi Maria,love all your recipes and have tried out many of them.i want to try out this recipe but all amul cream cheeses available contain salt..is it ok to add salted cream cheese??

    • Hi Bindu,

      Thank you :)

      The cream cheese that I use here also is a bit salty, but it didnt affect the taste of the cheesecake. So I guess you can go ahead with the Amul cream cheese..

      Hope you get to try this soon and like it too..

      Cheers

  • Hi,

    I made this and it was delicious! Now I am wondering if it I can adapt this to make blueberry cheesecake with blueberry preserves. Do you think I would need to modify much apart from replacing the mango pulp with the blueberries? Thanks in advance

    • Hi Ceenu,

      Thank you!

      I guess you can make with with blueberries, but you may need to increase the sugar qty.

      Also I think if you are using ready made blueberry preserve, you may not add gelatin for the topping portion.

      Hope it comes out well. All the best!

  • Hi maria,

  •  hi Maria,
    hope that u are doing fine. writing you after almost 1 year. This mango cheesecake looks interesting but want to ask you one thing before trying it and that can I use cheese spread for this recipe?

    Waiting for your reply,

    Rgds,
    Shamita

    • Hi Shamita,

      I’m doing good, thanks. Hope you are also doing great.

      I think you can, because the the philadelphia cheese I used, it was written cheese spread, so I think it’s ok. Hope you get to try this soon and like it too..

      Cheers

I haven’t eaten a decent mango in 3 years so I would definitely be one of those people who wold have stared you down for refusing one! Enjoyed your  post and this luscious dessert! Love layered ones and anything with mangoes…mmm bliss! 

  • I’m so glad to hear that you used to hate mangoes… ;) because i still do and all of my friends/relatives say i’m the only one like this in this whole world :) Now at least there is some hope that my dislike to fruits,especially mangoes will change one day :)

  • Hi Maria, how would you use Chinagrass in this recipe, as I am vegetarian and Chinagrass only works when boiled.  Thanks for your assistance.

    • Hi Gita,

      I havent tred this recipe with china grass yet. However I’ve made a similar dish with china grass. The method I used for that is:

      soak 10 gms china grass in 1 cup of water for 15 mins. Let it boil, till the china grass melts. Remove from fire. When it becomes warm, strain it and add to mango pulp and follow the rest of the recipe.

      Hope you get to try it soon :)

      Cheers
      Maria

  • Coincidentally, I made this today. usually I use stewed strawberries as topping. But this time just mixed fresh mangoes pieces to some pulp as topping. Waiting to dig into it after dinner :))

    • Hi Shruthi,

      I’m not sure about arrowroot powder, but if china grass/agar agar is available, it works. I didnt know it was difficult to get gelatine in Dubai!

      Cheers
      Maria
