Mango & Coconut Cheesecake


This weekend, I had finished a commission order on pearl jewelry.
Lustrous freshwater pearls to create simple yet classic necklace & bracelet.
Simplicity worked to perfection.

After that, I made a cheesecake for my family as always.
The cheesecake is made of 2 layers: mango & coconut.
It seemed to be a great combo in my mind but the subtle taste of coconut didn't quite stand out.
It's smoother & richer when served without the mango cheese layer.
However, with the mango layer, it's fruity & refreshing.
Want to try make the coconut cheesecake again.




The decoration is simple but the end result is rather stunning.
A cute mini cheesecake!

Recipe (6" round/6 x 3" round):
Crust:
30g butter (unsalted & melted)
70g digestive biscuit crumbs

Mix the crust ingredients & press into a pan/ramekins, cool in a fridge.

Coconut cheese filling:
125g cream cheese
120ml whipping cream
120ml coconut milk
50g sugar
5g sheet gelatine

Dissolve the gelatin in coconut milk over simmering water.
Whisk cream cheese & sugar until smooth.
Whisk the whipping cream to soft peaks, fold in the cheese.
Fold in the coconut milk.
Fill in the prepared pan then refrigerate to set.

Mango cheese filling:
125g cream cheese
75g whipping cream
50g mango puree
15g sugar
25g water
4g sheet gelatine

20-30g mango puree for decoration

Dissolve the gelatin in water over simmering water.
In a large bowl, whisk cream cheese, mango puree & sugar until smooth.
Whisk the whipping cream to soft peaks, fold in the mango cheese mixture.
Fold in the gelatine solution.
Pour over the coconut cheese.
Spoon some mango puree on top & use a knife to cut through the batter in random motion for the marble effect.
Refrigerate to set.
