A few weeks back our family shared a slice of the most magnificent mango cheesecake. Buttery biscuit base, the creamiest of cream cheese fillings and a juicy, generous portion of mango with pistachios, passion fruit and pomegranate seeds. Sharing puddings isn’t in my nature – my second ‘sweet stomach’ operates at generous capacity and I try not to share with my husband simply because he consumes at such breathtaking speed you have to speed eat the dish in question to be in with the chance of even a taste – but on this occasion a mouthful or two felt like it would fit the bill. A big mouthful for Daddy, a medium mouthful for Mummy and a teeny tiny mouthful for Nino, as our two year old still happily recounts, Goldilocks style.

Recreating that recipe at home proved pretty easy with a fragrant Alphonso mango (hurray for the season) the real star of the show. I considered creating a mango jelly topping for a little finesse but this beautiful fruit is best not messed with and I love the look of rustic chunks piled high with passion fruit pulp and flecks of green pistachio. The base is a mixture of digestive biscuits and ground pistachios, giving it a gentle green hue and mellow, nutty taste. And the middle is my favourite no-bake cheesecake combination of cream cheese and white chocolate, here topped up with a little Greek yoghurt for additional creaminess and tang.

I’d love to say we shared a single slice again, exclaiming over each exquisite mouthful, but the problem with having a whole cheesecake in your fridge is that it just invites itself to be eaten. Creamy middle, crunchy base, fruity topping, this cheesecake is the perfect combination of sugar and fat that dieticians label so lethal to the waistline. Which may not be the nutrition news you’re hoping to hear, but does mean it’s pretty damn delicious.

This creamy no-bake cheesecake couldn't be simpler to make. Rich with white chocolate and topped with sweet mango, passion fruit and toasted pistachios, it's somehow intense and the perfect palate cleanser all at once. Vary the fruit topping or sub in hazelnuts or macadamias in the base for a delicious twist.
