Mango and Raspberry Cheesecakes

Scrummy summery cheesecakes with mango and raspberry – a lovely fruity treat!

I thought I’d make cheesecakes today as I was browsing an old cook book and realised I hadn’t made good old-fashioned comfort food in quite a while! This is a relatively healthy version of the old classic, but still perfect for a filling, tasty pudding. I love the taste of ginger, so I added that in the base, but if you’re not a fan you could substitute it for cinnamon.

I hope you love them!

This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan.

Ingredients | Serves 4

  • 50g of vegan butter
  • Half a teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 55g of rolled oats
  • One large mango
  • 350g of full-fat vegan cream cheese
  • 100g of icing sugar
  • 12 raspberries to decorate

Method:

  1. Melt the spread in a saucepan over a low heat. Remove from the heat and add the oats and ginger. Press the mixture into four individual ramekins.
  2. Peel and chop the mango. Put three quarters of it in a blender and whizz it into a puree.
  3. Mix the mango puree into the cream cheese, then add the rest of the chopped mango and stir. Put the cheesy mango mixture onto the oat mixture and refrigerate the cheesecakes for at least three hours.
  4. If you have any mango puree left, decorate the cheesecakes with that and three raspberries each.
