No-bake Mango Cheesecake with a magic healthy ingredient

Hi friends! As some of you might know, I’m an ardent mango lover and love developing new recipes with the king of fruits. From raw mango pickles and chutneys to mango cakes, salads, or kheer, I like surprising my palate with its indulgent flavours. Monsoons have arrived, albeit haltingly, in Mumbai so I decided to bid adieu to them for this season with a simple and easy mango cheesecake recipe. This turned out to be a huge hit with my family and I had puppy-eyed requests for repeats. 🙂

Mango cheesecake has a salty touch to it which balances its sweetness beautifully. I didn’t have cream cheese at home and decided to use the next best, and healthier, option, paneer to give it the perfect texture and smoothness. Ripe Alphonso mangoes would work best for this recipe. Also, since this is a no-bake mango cheesecake, you can use ramekins or small glass serving bowls to set it in. Let’s get started!

7-8 digestive biscuits

2-3 tbsp melted salted butter

1 cup Alphonso mangoes

1/2 cup crumbled fresh paneer

2-3 tbsp condensed milk

For garnish: Chopped mango cubes


1. Blend the digestive biscuits and butter till they’re well combined. Set this mixture at the base of a ramekin tightly and refrigerate it for 10-15 mins.

2. Blend the mangoes, paneer, and condensed milk till they form a smooth semi-thick mixture. Make sure that there are no lumps.

3. Layer this over the biscuit base and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4-5 hrs

4. Once it is set, garnish with chopped mango cubes and serve chilled!

You can use refined sugar and a drop of milk instead of condensed milk too. Avoid brown sugar or jaggery powder though to avoid the taste, colour, and texture getting irreversibly altered. Chilling is crucial, so placate your tastebuds into forced submission. 😉

What are your favourite mango recipes? Do you like to experiment and innovate too? Would love to know.

  2. I’m not a mango fan (or any fruit fan) and yet I could feel the smoothness of the cheesecake on my tongue as I read your delectable recipe. Will not try it coz I’m not a great cook. But will try a mango cheesecake for the first time, just to feel the experience of your words.

  3. This recipe is pure magic! I love how you’ve incorporated a healthy twist into a classic dessert. Mango cheesecake without the guilt sounds like a dream. Can’t wait to try it out—thanks for sharing this gem!

  4. Wow Varsha, you make this too?… the only difference between my version n yours is that I use hung curd instead of paneer and I serve it in shot glasses if I don’t have enough time to chill. I will try the paneer version as it sounds equally yummy. Thank you for this twist. 😊

  5. This is an absolutely easy and must to make recipe for me. In summers anything made of mangoes, be it ripe or raw I am always in love with. I will definitely try this out without fail. Just loving it Yummy 🙂

  7. This is quick and easy. Thank you for sharing it. I will surely try it out. I also replace cream cheese with paneer when I am running short of it.

  8. Wow this looks healthy and easy, never knew we can add paneer 🙂 Thank you for the recipe, I will try it for sure during the next mango season here in Sindhudurg.

  9. Paneer isn’t something commonly used in the Philippines so it’s interesting for me to see a cheesecake use it. We of course are fond of cheesecakes, of any kind! Mangoes though is also a favorite in our household which we eat almost everyday(when in season) and put in different desserts as well.

  10. Mango blended with cheese is so tempting. And the recipe us so easy and takes very less time too. I am definitely going to try this out. Thank fully mango are still there here.
