Mango and White Chocolate Cheesecake

I love mango so was pleased when I saw it was the ingredient chosen for this month's We Should Cocoa, the challenge that encourages bloggers to bake with chocolate and one other key ingredient every month. I thought mango would pair better with white chocolate than milk or plain, and I've had quite a taste for cheesecake recently, so I had a look on the internet for white chocolate and mango cheesecake recipes, then ended up adapting it. This cheesecake is based loosely on this recipe from Philadelphia Cheese but I made some changes.

Put 200g digestive biscuits in a food processor and pulse until you have crumbs

Melt 50g butter, mix with the crumbs and press down into the base of a loose-bottomed cake tin.

The recipe I used tells you to whip the cream cheese and then add the double cream. I had some leftover double cream from when I made the fraisier, so I mixed that with 200g cream cheese. I then melted 150g white chocolate and stirred it in.

The recipe also says you should puree some tinned mango and stirred it in. I had a whole mango in the fridge and as I really like the fruit I decided to chop it into cubes and stir that through the cream, cheese and chocolate mixture.

Spoon the mixture onto the biscuit base

I chopped some more mango and sprinkled the chunks over the top.

Leave in the fridge for at least 3 hours until firm.

  1. Looks in a cheesecake is so refreshing! I'd love a slice or two. This would be perfect to take to a BBQ in the summer I think...if we ever get a summer :-)

  2. That sounds completely delicious. I've only ever had mango with dark chocolate, but I can see how good it would be in this cheesecake. I love mango and fresh is of course best, but I always have such trouble preparing it. Thanks for entering We Should Cocoa.

  3. Looks delicious! I paired mango with white chocolate too and it worked really well. Please send me a slice :)

  4. looks yummy.

  5. I love mango too! I had an amazing mango and key lime cheesecake from the cheesecake factory recently, it was sooo tasty! Love the idea of pairing it with white choc too!
