Sugar Free Mango Cheesecake Recipe

Yesterday while feeding a baby pureed mango (long story, but no, I haven't had a baby. When that day comes you can rest assured I WILL blog every detail)... anyway, this mashed up mango looked, smelt and tasted (yes, I stole food off a baby) amazing. As a result inspired to make a healthy summery dessert using this delicious ingredient. 

Off I popped to Holland and Barret to get some wheat free oat cakes and some Greek yogurt. The result of my mango dessert experiment was frankly, delicious and as a bonus it is guilt free!

You will need:

1 x Large Mango 
1/2 Tub of Greek Yogurt (don't use low fat, it's bad for you!)
1 Tsp of Coconut Oil
2 Tbsp of Agave or Manuka Honey 
7 Nairns Oat Cakes (these come in 4 packets of 7 biscuits)
1 Tsp ginger paste or 1Tsp ginger powder

1) Mash up the mango in a food processor until it looks a little like this...

2) Melt the coconut oil in a large bowl, then add your smashed up oat cakes and ginger paste. Once you have mixed this together, press your oatcake base into your chosen receptacle. 

3) Whip the Greek yogurt along with the agave nectar for a couple of minutes until the mixture is smooth and slightly aerated. 

4) Pour your mango mixture on top of the oatcake base and smooth out. Then pour your yogurt mixture on top of this. Pop into the fridge and leave to set. After 2 hours it's delicious but slightly runny, if you leave it overnight it holds its shape perfectly. 

If you have an especially sweet tooth I would recommend adding some honey to the oatcake base, or replacing the ginger with vanilla. 

Hope you all enjoy my guilt free summer dessert!
