This no-bake mango moussecheesecake is an easy and perfect dessert for Summer. The cheesecake is creamy, airy, and jiggly, and with the right amount of sweetness. Easy No-Bake Mango Cheesecake

I love no-bake dessert as we are heading into warmer months (summer!). I love summer and I just want to enjoy every second of it. Summer feels too short here in Minnesota 🙂 When I saw more mangoes are on sale, I didn’t even think twice to get more. I grew up in a tropical country and mango is available all year long at a great price. I love mangoes a lot and using them in this no-bake mango cheesecake couldn’t be more perfect!

Why you’ll love this no-bake mango cheesecake

1. It’s no-bake, so you don’t need to heat up your house with the oven 2. The cake is not overly sweet 3. It has great texture: creamy and jiggly (thanks to the gelatine)

Can I make this with agar agar instead of gelatine

I’m pretty sure you can. I didn’t try it with agar agar. Honestly though, I prefer the texture of gelatine compared to agar agar. Gelatine gives that bouncy and jiggly texture that agar agar can’t.

How to make no-bake mango cheesecake

1. You can use one large 7-inch round pan or 3 of 4-inch round pan (like in my case). Put the crackers in a food processor and process into fine crumbs. You can also put them inside a zipper bag and use a rolling pin to roll them to break into fine crumbs

2. Mix the crumbs with melted butter until the mixture resembles wet sands 3. Transfer this to the pan and press it down to evenly distribute the crumb mixture. Chill in the fridge to let it harden while you prepare other things 4. Put gelatine powder in a heat-proof small bowl and add 60 ml water. Stir to combine and let the gelatine bloom for 10 minutes

5. Make sure the cream cheese is softened. Whisk the cream cheese and sugar until creamy and sugar dissolves 6. Put the gelatine bowl in another larger bowl filled with warm water and keep stirring. The bloomed gelatine will melt into liquid. Add this melted gelatine into the cream cheese mixture and stir to combine

7. Meanwhile, pour very cold heavy cream into another mixing bowl. Use a stand mixer to whip the cream until just form a thick creamy mixture but soft peak. You do not want to whip until firm 8. Fold this into the cream cheese mixture and use spatula to fold to combine 9. Arrange a few pieces of mango cubes on the edge of the round pan 10. Pour 1/3 of the cream cheese mixture into the pan. Arrange 1/2 of the mango cubes on top

11. Pour another 1/3 of the cream cheese mixture. Arrange with the rest of the mango cubes on top. Pour the rest of the cream cheese mixture. Use a rubber spatula to help you smooth the surface. Cover with a plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight 12. Put gelatine powder in a heat-proof small bowl and add 50 ml water. Stir to combine and let the gelatine bloom for 10 minutes. Put the gelatine bowl in another larger bowl filled with warm water and keep stirring.

In the refrigerator: Keep them covered in the refrigerator. It can last for about 4-5 days. Once exposed to warm temperature, the mousse cheesecake may loose its airiness and may even turn runny. So keep them chilled. In the freezer: You can freeze the cake for up to one month. Keep them in air-tight container.
