Chilled Mango Cheesecake

I ventured into making cheesecake after having "listened" that my good friend is trying her hand, actually 3rd try in making this chilled mango cheesecake. Her 1st and 2nd turnout is not that good. Apparently the cheese is too soft and she suspected the culprit being the gelatin.

With gelatin in hand again, she tried it and gave me 2 packs of gelatin and I tried it too. It was fun and easy as no baking is required. Just mix the stuff up and tuck it into the fridge to chill. Easy peasy

I started out with the base. Blend those biscuits, add butter and press into the tin.

Next, was to cream the cheese. Add in yoghurt, mango cubes and gelatin. And basically we're done!! Tuck it into the fridge for a few hours, preferably overnight and you'll have your chilled mango cheesecake ready to be eaten :)

~ the outcome

Me not a really cheesecake fan finds this cake not "cheesy" enough LOL! Till the next time when I'm in the mood to make chilled mango cheesecake, I'll need to make a mental note to add in more butter for the base to be more firm, more cream cheese and less yoghurt.

It only took me 1.5 hours to prepare, make and clean-up. Good for last minute "dunno wat-to-make" for dessert dilemma if you're having a party the next day and want to avoid messing the kitchen too much!

oh yes... the tricky part of making this is the quantity of gelatin. felicia use to make this a lot when we were in australia.
