^ If you’ve not come across Alphonso mangoes, behold the beauties above. In my opinion, the best of the best. When you slice open the golden yellow skin, a saffron-coloured, almost buttery flesh is revealed, bursting with sweet juices and a mouthwatering aroma.

Hopefully, you can resist eating them straight away, (admittedly, it’s really tough!) I assure you, they make the best cheesecakes.

It’s a pretty simple process. You start by making some puree: blitzing the mangoes in a blender and sieving. You then assemble a biscuit base before adding some mango puree to the cheesecake mix. After that, make a reduction by adding the puree to some water, sugar and gelatin. Finally, decorate with swirls of vanilla whipped cream.

Cheesecake

  1. Place digestive biscuits into a sealable sandwich bag and bash with a rolling pin until you’re left with evenly sized small crumbs.
  2. Add the butter and the biscuit crumbs to a bowl and using your fingers, rub your index and middle fingers against your thumb to combine.
  3. Place the mixture in a loose bottomed 8-inch tin and press down with a tablespoon to get an evenly spread base.
  4. Next, whisk the cream cheese for 30 seconds until fluffy before adding the cream, lemon juice, icing sugar, mango puree and vanilla seeds then whisking until thick and creamy.
  5. Use a rubber spatula to transfer the cheesecake mix to the tin, spread out evenly over the base.
  6. Cover with clingfilm then place in the fridge for at least an hour to set.

Mango reduction

  1. Add all the ingredients except the gelatin to a small saucepan and place on a low heat.
  2. When the mixture is heated through, add the gelatine to 3 tsp of cold water in a small bowl. Mix to combine and then add to saucepan
  3. Whisk to combine everything, allow to heat for another minute or two, then set aside to cool slightly before pouring over the cheesecake.
