No bake, quick and easy, mango cheesecake


The mango mania season is almost about to end here in India and I could not have found a more appropriate time to kick start “Sweeten it up 2.0.” (No, not changing the name, this was purely for effect.”

It’s been a while is an understatement, but I am back especially to share this rich, creamy and as tangy as it is sweet, recipe.

I have never enjoyed eating fruits and till date that is one habit that has stuck but when it comes to mangoes, I am always up for more. Whether it’s simply cut up, crushed to a pulp, swirled on top of some ice cream, blended in a milkshake, hidden in a tart or of course the best way of eating it, sucked on whole heartedly.

If you are an avid cheesecake fan, I think you would want to try this one


SERVES – 8 People

* 8-10 Biscuits (Mix of flavoured and plain digestives)
* ½ Cup of Macadamia nuts and Walnuts
* 100 grams of Raspberries
* 50 grams of Melted Butter
* 400 grams of Cream Cheese
* 300 grams of Melted White Chocolate
* 200 ml of Heavy Cream
* 1½ Cups of Mango Pulp
* 2 tbsp. of Lemon Juice
* 20 grams of Gelatin Powder
* 2 mangoes for garnish (optional)

Quick & East Mango Cheesecake Recipe

Method-: The Base
– In a mixer add 8-10 biscuits, 1/2 cup of your nut mix (macadamia nuts and walnuts,) 100 grams of raspberries and 50 grams of melted butter.

Quick & East Mango Cheesecake Recipe

– Blitz this mix but not to a powder like consistency. You want the base of your cheesecake to have a chunky and crunchy base.

* TIP * Be sure to dehydrate your berries before adding it in the base mix. Place the raspberries on a baking tray and leave them in the oven at 180ºC until you have got rid of their moisture content.

* TIP * Don’t add the melted butter when it’s too hot, or your crumb could become gluggy and greasy, which is not a good sign!

– Grease the base of your tin and the sides with butter. Then place your biscuit mix on and start pressing it down with the curved side of a spoon. Your base should be at least half of an inch or an inch in height.

– Place your base in the fridge to let it harden, for an hour.

Method-: The Cheesecake Mix

– Start by taking 400 grams of soft cream cheese in a bowl and blend it or whisk it by hand till it becomes a little fluffy.

– Melt 300 grams of white chocolate and once it has cooled off slightly, add it in your bowl of cream cheese.

– Now add 1½ cups of the mango pulp to the cream cheese and white chocolate mixture.

– In another bowl whisk 200 ml of heavy cream, till it reaches a thick fluffy consistency.

* TIP * Take your cream out of the fridge in time. If it’s at room temperature, it’s easier to whip.

– Fold the whipped cream into your cream cheese mix. To this mix, add 2 tbsp of lemon juice and 20 grams of gelatin powder dissolved in warm water.

* TIP * Before adding the gelatin powder into your mixture, make sure to take a spoon of your mixture and add it into the gelatin liquid, to temper the gelatin mix and ensure it does not cause any lumps in your final mix.

* TIP * Be sure to know the type of gelatin you are using and how to use it. I had to make this cheesecake for a party and the wrong gelatin choice landed me in a position where I had to pick up a last minute basic chocolate torte. So be sure! Specially, while using vegetarian gelatin powder.

– Once you have given the mixture a final stir, taste it and ensure its flavour is just how you like it. To make it more sweet, you can always add extra icing sugar, to taste.

– Get your base out of the fridge, which would have become firm.

* TIP * A thick base which has set would not budge, if you want to put your base to the test, be bold!  Tilt your tin a bit and if the crumb slides, it’s not ready. In that case leave it in the fridge for another hour, just to be sure.

– Now pour your cheesecake mixture onto the base and put it back in the fridge for 3-4 hours.

Method-: Time To Decorate

– Before you take out the cheesecake, keep your garnish ready. You could use cream, leaves, a special layer of coulis, or like me, use freshly cut mango. After all: the more mango, the merrier.

– Though, who says you just have to use the mango pieces in the same old way? Here’s a fun way to style your cheesecake- Cut thin slices of the mango and use a small cookie cutter or make a stencil with a firm sheet of plastic, to cut the mango slices into round disks.

– Lastly, go crazy, make circles, make shapes, write a word! Decorate your cheesecake, the way you like it.

It has been way too long, since my last post but I am certain that this family recipe will be enough to make up for the lost time. Being a full time student and part time intern this summer definitely played a role in keeping me away from you all but Enough said about that! Coming to this recipe, it has been in my family since I was an infant and while growing up my aversion to all things healthy such as fruits, restricted me to only eat the top layer of this luscious dessert, which was a bed of evenly sized chocolate shavings. However in the past few years, my fondness for this dessert has only grown and I am proud to state that I can easily finish two to three of them at a time and I do not just eat the layer of chocolate on top anymore. I hope you love this dessert as much as I do at the moment.

SERVES – 15 – 20 People
* 24 medium sized oranges
* 375 grams of vanilla ice cream
* 1 sachet of orange jelly powder (Royal / Hartley / Bluebird)
* 2 tsp of powdered sugar
* 3 packets of powder gelatin
* 1 large slab of milk chocolate

To make it more systematic, you could prepare the following before you start assembling the dessert.

* Wash all the oranges and cut the tops off
* Do not throw away the tops, you will need it in the end


* Carefully scoop out each orange using a small spoon, without breaking its peel
* Once all the oranges are taken out carefully, make sure all the peels are clean by rinsing them and cover them with a cloth.
* Now take Six oranges and remove its segments
* Start breaking the segments of the six oranges into minute pieces by hand.


* Take out juice from the remaining eighteen oranges.

– In a pan place 1 sachet of orange jelly powder and 500ml of orange juice and let it mix well and reduce over a medium heat.

– Once mixed well take it off the heat, it does not need to boil. Once off the heat, allow it to cool by setting it aside.

– On the side, grate your chocolate into shavings


– Now in a large bowl take 375 grams of vanilla ice cream and to this add the mixture of orange juice and orange jelly powder once it has cooled down.

* TIP * Wait till the orange jelly and orange juice mixture has cooled down and pass it through a sieve before pouring it on the ice cream. Otherwise the texture of the soufflé could change drastically.

– As the ice cream starts to melt slowly, Take the gelatin powder and soak it in lukewarm water.

– Once the gelatin has almost dissolved in the water add it in the bowl and mix well.

* TIP * You could use gelatin sheets as well as a substitute for the powder. 1 sachet of gelatin powder equals to three to four sheets of gelatin but the gelatin sheets need to be soaked in cold water and heated up afterwards in a pan with little water, in order to clarify it.

– Add in 2tsp of powdered sugar, to the mix in the bowl

* TIP * Incase your oranges tend to be more sour than usual, you could add more sugar according to taste.

– To the mixture now add the tiny bits you broke from the segments of the oranges.


– Once the ice cream has completely melted and the mix is fluffy and clear, you could start pouring them into each orange shell.

– But as soon as you pour the mixture, immediately sprinkle a layer of chocolate shavings on the top and cover it with the orange tops you cut at the start.

– Right after your done refrigerate them for 20-24 hours or put it in a freezer for 15-18 hours

– Once they are set, you could take them out and serve them in the orange shells itself.

Eat this fluffy and creamy dessert out of its chilled natural casing. It is 100% yummy and totally worth it!


Hope you enjoy this recipe and post ! Thank you 🙂

Since many of you enjoyed reading my post on five special blogs that have been inspirational for me, I decided to make it a recurring feature and therefore you can expect to see this kind of post more often. I Hope you find these blogs as exciting and inducing as the previous ones. Enjoy 🙂

1) Eat Play Love : Going through this blog is like flipping through pages of a family scrapbook, thoroughly enjoyable and endearing. I adore the fact that it’s not a generic portrayal of a family who dote on food and its culture but an account of the their lives. Not only is it engaging but also has spectacular pictures of them and their delicious dishes. If you are looking for a pleasant weekend activity with your family, take a recipe out of their blog !

2) The Domestic Man : If a woman cooks somehow it does not seem unnatural but when a man cooks it just creates a temporary stir in people’s mind. That being the reason I could not resist viewing Russ Crandall’s blog. Insightful and a true account of the history of American food is the best way to sum up his website. His healthy yet flavoursome dishes will leave you with the urge to switch your lunch or dinner with his! Do go visit his blog for some delectable and nutritious recipes.
Link – The Domestic Man

3) @ Down Under : Personally when I visit blogs I feel as though a visual specimen can just add a whole different aspect to your recipe and going through this blog is just a visual treat. Each picture gives you the feeling as though you’re looking at a beautifully crafted painting. The different colours and platings make the food come alive. Recommended as the blog to read by Saveur, the mixture of her personal recipes and photographs equals to a visual feast you cannot miss out on.
Link – @ Down Under

4) Local Kitchen : A “virtual Kitchen Notebook” sounds interesting right ? but once you get on the website it’s a lot more than just recipes, through Kaela’s tips on how to grow your own produce your hesitation towards this kind of a lifestyle will  be terminated. Some interesting facts, Scrumptious dishes and a lifestyle to follow suit. To learn these tips and more visit the site!

5) Sweet And Crumbly : Simple and Witty is the best way to describe Geni and describing her blog well nothing would do it justice. A simple layout should not have you fooled, her food has a soul of its own and you cannot resist staring at her desserts, right from her irish soda bread to the cinnamon spiced cupcakes you will want to try it all. So get cracking !

My friends and I have been on the lookout for a place, which could come to be known as our spot. Yes we watched the hit American sitcom Friends too often and that is what lead to this great quest for the one and only spot! And finally after a year of hunting around we found it.

So here is the review of my haven in London the Brew Box, located at the very end of Islington high street tucked away beneath a residential building this café is not the easiest to locate be prepared for a bit of a search. Though once you manage to find your way to it and enter the compact yet endearing space you will wish you never have to leave it.

Other than being renowned to serve up a delectable range of bubble tea they serve desserts made by popular London bakeries such as Necco and Cocomaya. This makes the Brew Box well equipped to help you through a bad day or just put a smile on your face. The café owned by two warm and sociable men, who make sure you are comfortable and allow you to relax and just have a good time. The most exciting feature though is not their fresh and groovy music but the games they have around their tables. Come with a group of friends and you could easily be occupied for hours playing a game of Jenga or connect four.

With a simple yet attractive menu there is no room for disappointment, being a dessert lover I could not resist their raisin and oatmeal cookie served up with vanilla bean ice cream and caramel sauce. Other than falling in love with the dessert at first sight the fact that it was brought to our table was appreciable.


Now moving towards the good part, the cookie served warm with an overtly generous portion of vanilla bean ice cream decorated beautifully with a drizzle of caramel sauce. Who would not want a bite of that?

The cookie was warm, crumbly and succulent. The balance between the oatmeal and raisin was just right and not immensely sweet. Paired with a spoonful of the rich ice cream and sweet yet sensational burnt taste of the caramel, you get the most delicious bite. This is a definite must have on my list!

Even though I was full, I got the sudden urge to go back to their counter and just scan through their desserts, just scan!

As you can guess I did more than just scan. Ever heard of the trend of cronuts? Yes I had fallen prey to their delicately shaped croissant doughnuts. I have to be honest, I never imagined enjoying a hybrid dessert but I was glad that I had my first cronut experience at the brew.


Served warm the round flaky pastry dough was topped with a layer of thick milk chocolate and garnished with white chocolate shavings. Within seconds I was half way threw the dessert, the mini dough ball bursts with flavour. At first you get the slightly salty croissant taste, right after that the rich and creamy chocolate ganache in the centre and the layer of chocolate on top though is not as great as the filling adds a great textural element and makes it look as appealing as it tastes.

If your ever in the neighborhood and have spare time on your hands please do visit the Brew Box, a hip and welcoming café, which helps you forget about the world outside, great music, their authentic and flavoursome bubble tea range and of course their mouth watering desserts an added bonus is that they have free wifi and all this at an affordable price. It is for sure a sweet place to visit.

As a young girl Nutella and jam sandwiches was me showcasing my cooking skills, thankfully I have come a long way from that. Being a foodie I track all the trends related to food and one of the things that I absolutely adore doing is watching shows focused around cooking. My all time favourite show is Masterchef Australia, every episode makes me wish I was there ready to devour their ambrosial dishes and this dessert is inspired by two recipes that I have seen on their show. If you love food and have spare time on your hands I urge you to watch the show it will change your life !


SERVES-4 to 6 People

Ingredients-: Vanilla Yogurt Pannacotta
* 375 ml of Single Cream
* 3½ Tablespoons of Icing Sugar
* 3 Gelatin Leaves/1 Tablespoon Powdered Gelatin
* 6½ Ounces of Full Fat Yogurt
* 1 Vanilla Bean

Ingredients-: Raspberry Coulis
* 2 Tablespoons Castor Sugar
* 3 Tablespoons Water
* 1 cup of Fresh Raspberries

Method: Vanilla Yogurt Pannacotta

– Before starting on the Pannacotta it is essential to have your Gelatin ready, Place 3 Gelatin leaves in a bowl of cold water for about 2-3 minutes.

– Then pour the 375 ml of cream in a saucepan over a medium heat and add 3½ Tablespoons of icing sugar to it. Keep stirring this for 3-4 minutes until it’s cooked.

– As soon as your cream and sugar mix is warmed up, remove it from the heat and add the gelatin.

* TIP * If you want to add powdered Gelatin instead, make sure you add 1 Tablespoon of powdered gelatin in a small bowl containing 2-3 tablespoons of warm water. Powdered gelatin acts best with warm water and once its granules dissolve you may add it to the pannacotta.

– While adding the Gelatin sheets make sure it’s wobbly  in its texture, so it dissolves instantly into the pannacotta mixture.Just give it a good stir, making sure there are no lumps.

– To this add 6½ ounces of full fat yogurt; whisk it just a bit to make the mixture light and smooth.

– Now we have to add the vanilla bean seeds, in order to get the vanilla flavour and texture. Slicing a vanilla bean is very simple.

– Take a knife and make a slit in the middle of the vanilla bean, vertically from top to bottom. Then open up the vanilla bean and using your knife scrape the little black seeds inside.

– Once you have scraped all of the seeds add it to your Pannacotta mixture and mix it. Your mixture now must look creamy and smooth with several black dots, due to the vanilla bean seeds.

* TIP * If you cannot find a vanilla bean anywhere, 1 Teaspoon of vanilla bean paste is a great substitute but never use vanilla extract because its flavour is tooconcentrated and it will not add any visual element.

– Let the mixture cool down and once it has pour it into your preferred mould. You could pour it into six different moulds or one big one.

– Now it goes into the fridge to set for about 3-4 hours to set.

Method: Raspberry Coulis

– In a saucepan over a medium heat, add the fresh raspberries, then 3 tablespoons of water and 2 tablespoons of castor sugar and let it cook for 3-4 minutes.

– Let them boil and once the raspberries become soft and they have absorbed all the water, bring it to a simmer for another 2-4 minutes.

– Then take the mix off the heat and put it in a mixer. After mixing it for about 5 seconds take it out.

– Pass the mix through a sieve to make sure the coulis is smooth and will not contain any pieces of raspberry.

– Let the coulis cool down then put it in the fridge to thicken up and use it once the pannacotta is ready.

– Now comes the best part, to finally plate up your dessert and wow people!

– After your Pannacotta has set, take it out of the fridge and place the mould in a saucepan of water over a low heat for just 3 seconds.

– Then take it out and with a knife, go vertically from the top to the bottom of one side of the mould to create an air pocket. Now place your mould facing downwards on a serving plate.

– If it does not slide right out, do not worry just keep shifting the mould and banging it lightly to get it out without any damages.

– Once it’s out, its time to decorate !!

– Use the coulis as an accompaniment, either serve it in a bowl with it or spread it in dots around the pannacotta, you could pour some freely over it making it look abstract or could make an artistic line. Bring out the creative side in you !

– Enjoy your creamy, silky smooth and delicious pannacotta.
