Mango Cheesecake

No bake, no Gelatin Mango cheese cake is a fruity, delicious treat. This mango cheesecake is extremely creamy and smooth. It has a lovely tropical mango flavor and a soft tangy fragrance.


To prepare no bake cheesecakes, I use Agar. Agar (pronounced /ˈeɪɡɑːr/, US: /ˈɑːɡər/) or agar-agar is a jelly-like substance, obtained from algae. In India, it is known as China Grass. Agar has been used as an ingredient in desserts throughout Asia, and also as a solid substrate to contain culture media for microbiological work. Agar can be used as a laxative(due to high fiber popular among weight watchers), an appetite suppressant, a vegetarian substitute for gelatin, a thickener for soups, in fruit preserves, ice cream, and other desserts, as a clarifying agent in brewing, and for sizing paper and fabrics.
